The teaching video takes you through the different steps the children will take as they build up to achieving the new objective. The video includes worked examples as well as questions for the children to have a go at and discuss with an adult. Use the video at the pace your child needs it and keep stopping and starting when you need too. Any work from the examples on the video can be done in the child's book. This should hopefully give your child the confidence to then complete the first questions on the independent work. The second sheet of the independent work is problem solving and reasoning so don't feel the pressure to push your child onto these unless you feel they secure with the main objective.
We move onto a new unit of measurement for the next two weeks. This unit will include some re-cap lessons from year 2 to ensure the children have the skills needed to access the year three curriculum. Today's lesson looks at using a ruler to measure. They will measure in cm and mm. They need to be secure with the fact that 1cm =10mm and to be able to see how the divisions on the ruler are in cm and mm.
