Welcome to Tuesday, Year 3!
There are two uses of apostrophes:
Possession= eg. Patrick’s homework (because the homework belonged to Patrick)
Omission= when a letter is missing eg. Have not – haven’t
One common misconception is that we use an apostrophe every time a word ends in s like cats. Compare these sentences with s
- My house was full of cats.
- I filled up my cat’s bowl. (here we use an apostrophe because the bowl belongs to the cat)
Read these sentences then write them out with the correct apostrophe but be careful… some don’t need one!
- Patrick looks at his books.
- The elfs face grew red with anger.
- Mum yelled that Patricks dinner was ready.
- Patrick didnt want to do his homework!
- The elf couldnt understand times tables.
- Patrick got As for all of his work.
When we use dienes to create visual representations of numbers, we use these resources:
Draw these numbers using the dienes. For the 1000, you can experiment with different ways to show this if you find drawing a cube hard (try to remember how to draw a cube from last term’s art)
136 228 36 71 194 206 380
Our science topic this term is plants. It might be nice if you were able to grow a flower from seed across the term and watch its progress, but this is optional.
Today’s lesson is to draw a flower and label the four main plant parts and their important functions.
Research the four main parts and use words from the word bank below in your explanation about their functions.
- Flower 2) Stem 3) Leaves 4) Roots
Word Bank: attract, carbon dioxide, nutrients, absorb, stabilises
Take care and stay safe,
