Good Morning Year 3!
I went for a nice walk through the park and around my village yesterday! The weather was lovely and hot!
Please complete 10 minutes of TT Rockstars.
Here is todays video link https://vimeo.com/420240853, focusing on subtracting two 3-digit numbers. There are no exchanges in the subtraction today so this is a chance for you to practise the basics of the subtraction column method. The sheet today goes through a couple of methods for you including column method and a number line method. This is an opportunity for you to choose which method suits you best. Some of you will find the column method much easier than the number line, some of you will be the other way round and that is fine!
Remember, when using the column method, subtract the bottom number from the top.
If there are ever any questions that ask you to find the difference, or ask you to find how many more or less of something there is, always subtract the 2 numbers and you'll get your answer! This should help you with questions 5 and 6.
Questions 7, 8 and 9 are the challenges on this worksheet today, complete what you can. Question 7b seems to be extremely challenging so please skip over if you need. If you get to the challenges and feel you would just like some more practise on your column subtraction, you could ask someone at home to give you some calculations to work out.

Did any of you manage to find out what the suffix "ation" means? Usually, when we add "ation" to a word, it means that it is becoming an action, a process or is the result of something. For example, communication is the action of communicating. There are 2 main rules with adding "ation".
1. If your root word (word before ation is added) ends in an 'e', you drop the 'e' to add "ation.
2. If your root word ends in a 'y', you change the 'y' to an 'i' and usually add a 'c' as well.
I would like you to have a go at adding the "ation" suffix to these words.
Challenge: Use 2 of these words in a sentence.

Whole Class Writing Task
Have a read through the letter again that you read yesterday. We are going to focus on those tricky words again today. Your task today is on page 5, and it asks you to find synonyms for the words listed. Remember, a synonym is another word that means exactly the same! This is where a thesaurus comes in handy! You could either use a book version if you have one at home or an online thesaurus.
The link for the whole booklet again is below if you'd like to open or print, also below is a picture of the text and the activity on page 5.
You are going to continue looking at Piet Mondrian's work today for inspiration. Yesterday you made your own shape pictures made up of squares and rectangles. Today, inspired from this, I would like you to make a shape picture made up of a different shape. For example, you could draw different sized circles over your page and colour in, or even triangles or stars. You could even do a mixture of shapes if you wanted to! The choice is yours, keep to using 3 colours and ensure to leave some of the spaces blank.
Here is a reminder of Piet Mondrian's work where he has used squares and rectangles to build his picture.
