Hi Year 3! 

Well done for a wonderful year... from home learning, to class assemblies, from the pantomime, to the Cutty Sark! You have put in AMAZING effort, and always put a smile on our faces. 

Have a wonderful summer holiday, and we hope you enjoy the summer home learning challenges we have prepared for you. 

We are so excited to see you in September, and we hope you and your families are staying safe and well.

MATHS 

This week we are doing our second week on time! 

Please watch this video to remind yourself how to tell the time to 5 minutes: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h6RNkQ7lU8Y

When we tell the time in minutes, the minute hand can point between any of the intervals of 5. For example, the clock below is pointing to 12:03. The hour is 12, and the minute hand is pointing to the 3. It is still 2 minutes until 12:05 (5 past 12). 

 

Please complete the activities to the best of your ability, and don't worry if you find this tricky! You will go over it again when you come back to school.
