St John the Baptist Roman Catholic Primary School Love One Another


Thursday 30th April

Good Morning Year 3!


I hope you are all enjoying this week's tasks, I am receiving some great emails with lovely work on. Keep them coming! 

Remember to do your daily tasks of:

1) Reading - only a few of you told me which book you are reading on the blog yesterday, make sure you tell me!

2) Practise your spellings.

3) Play on Times Table Rockstars for at least 15mins. 


Here are today's tasks... Try your best!!

LO: To count in tenths.

Continuing with our fraction work…

If I was explaining fractions in school, I would always refer to your spelling test results. We all aim to get 10/10 which is of course, 10 spellings right out of a possible 10. This means you got them ALL right = a WHOLE.

However, if you got 7/10, the top number (numerator) tells us you got 7 spellings correct, out of a possible 10 (the bottom number – denominator). I hope this helps a little bit when thinking of fractions.


Yesterday you were identifying tenths, today we are going to be counting in tenths.

Click on the link below to get onto the White Rose website. Click the + next to week 1 and scroll down to find Lesson 4 – Count in tenths.

Watch the video and then complete the worksheet that I have put further down here…


When you have done that, I have put another video further down for you to watch. It shows you whole numbers and fractions and it also shows you how you can write fractions as decimals too. There are a few challenges and questions on the video that you can write the answers to on a scrap piece of paper. You don’t need to write the answers for this video in your workbook.


Remember to keep practising your times tables too!!

Counting in tenths activity sheet...

An Introduction to Tenths

Have a go at the activities/questions on a scrap piece of paper. You don't need to write them in your workbooks.


LO: To describe your own dream.

Watch the film again (I have put it below) up to 2 mins 18 seconds.

With your parents or an older sibling - discuss the events in the film and discuss these questions:

You don’t need to write them down, you can just discuss them.


  • What is he going to do with the eggs?

  • Does everyone have happy dreams?

  • If you could choose your own dreams what would you want the Dream Giver to crack the egg on for you? Why?

  • How do you think nightmares are created?

  • What do you think will happen next in the film?

Think about what the question about choosing your own dream… If you could choose what the egg could crack onto you, what might it involve?
Here's some examples, I used objects to give me an idea: 
A football boot -  may be a dream about playing with your favourite player.

Lego model - may be that everything is made of Lego and you get to build your own motorbike to ride around on!


I would now like you to use your own wonderful imagination to write a description of your own made up dream. The dream you would like the Dream Giver to crack onto you. Remember, it is dream world so anything can happen! Think about all the features of description we have looked at this week:

  • Adjectives

  • Adverbs

  • Expanded noun phrases

  • Similes and metaphors

  • Alliteration

Try to include as many as you can!!


I would like you to write a full page in your workbooks, at least!


Email or post your work on the blog! I can’t wait to read all your exciting dreams! I bet your ideas are going to be amazing.

Who knows, we might actually have these dreams tonight!!!

Dream Giver ♥



Good morning Year 3! I hope you had a good rest from learning over the Easter holidays and are back working hard this week. Over the next four weeks, we are going to explore pulse and rhythm and connect this learning to your Rainforest topic (sneak peek as to what your new topic might be in Geography!)


Click on the link below to a word document that explains what I want you to do today. The YouTube video mentioned, I have put below.
