Key Information for Maths Home Learning
- Each week will have a different calculation focus. This week's calculation focus is: multiplication.
- Each week will begin with a mental maths task on Monday - mental maths is vital and supports written calculation methods.
- Our calculation booklet (which talks through each method for each year group step by step) is available on all class pages.
- Videos to support some calculation methods are available on our school website at https://www.baileygreenprimary.org.uk/home-learning/
- If your child is struggling significantly, please feel free to visit a previous year groups home learning page and access their work - whatever they do, they are building a solid foundation of calculation methods ready for their return.
This week's work is based on Harry Potter. Read about the spell bounding work of JK Rowling here: https://www.jkrowling.com/

We have finished our spelling lists for Year 3 - well done! We will now be focusing on revision and practise of the words covered so far.
Challenge 1: How many examples of forces in action can you find around your home? e.g. pulling the curtains/ pushing the door/ twisting the jam jar lid. Design a poster, power point or diagram to present your forces.
Challenge 2: Make up a game for Year 3 children using forces (push, pull & twist). Provide written instructions for playing.
Drawing a Maze
- Find an open space without any markings on the floor
- Take some coloured chalk to draw with. You can use whatever colours you like, but it helps to have a mixture (You can use paper and pencil/pens if you don't have chalk available)
- Start by drawing the central pattern of a cross with outer corners and dots just like in Step 1 on this website: https://outdoorclassroomday.org.uk/resource/drawing-a-maze/
- Join the top left with the right hand side of the cross in one sweeping arch
- Fill out the rest of the curves until your maze looks like the final diagram
- If you’re feeling adventurous, make your maze more elaborate by making it up as you go along (with dead ends and secret hideaways)
- When it’s ready, take turns to explore your way around with your family members.
We would love to see your masterpieces on twitter!
