Let's get those mathematical problem solving brains warmed up. I have found a puzzle for you to solve. You could print out the page and cut the buses and families out, draw our own versions, or just make jottings of your ideas in your book.
Help the families to fit on the buses.
Today we are going to get tiny with our measuring. We are going to look at millimetres (mm) and centimetres (cm).
What do you think you could measure in mm? Can you gather together some from around your house, predict how many mm's they are and if you have a ruler at home see how close you were to your approximations. Can you convert the mm's into cm's?
Remember 10mm = 1cm
I have included a mm and cm pdf to help you think in these measurements. I have also placed on a worksheet that you can complete, there are 2 sides. The children have used these before, if they want to build their confidence start on the first page. If you fancy more of a challenge, start on the second page.

Hello, my shiny happy superstars. I thought that you would like to have a try at one of your favourite games. Countdown. Here are the numbers that I would like you to use:
100 40 25 8 5 2
Your target number is:
You can add, subtract, times and divide as many times as you like in each calculation but remember you can only use the numbers once.
I have found a few different answers to this. Can you?
Continuing from here can you look at converting metres into centimetres. I have included a little information pdf along with 2 types of sheets that you could answer. Just do your best, that's all I can ask.

To warm up your mathematical brains, use the link that I have posted. Can you find 3 numbers that will add up to 36 from the selection that you have been given. How many different combinations can you find?
We would be looking at measuring in school.
I would like you if you have a ruler to choose everyday items that you can find around your house and measure them to the nearest full centimetre. If you really want to push yourself you could convert the centimetres in millimetres.
Remember there are 10mm in 1 cm.
Remember to start to measure from the 0cm, not the end of the ruler.
You could draw a table with your results in it, or draw a picture of the objects and write the measurements next to them.
If you do not have a ruler available to you, why don't you try to create your own way of measuring. You could use the length of your hand to measure your bed, how many hands did it take? Use your foot to measure the length of a rug.

Interpreting data in charts, bar graphs and pictograms.
Y3 children have already covered most of the unit on pictograms.
See if they can follow the instructions on the powerpoint.
As an extra activity children, can you think of your own information that you can gather from your family? You could ask other relatives on the phone or via text to gather enough data, e.g. shoe sizes, eye colour, favourite sport, favourite drink.
Create a table and either a bar graph or pictogram of your results.

Show your carer how to play times table bingo. Set up a game at home, you could play teacher if you wanted to:
Draw a grid that has 1 line going across and 2 lines going down, so you create six spaces. Write 1 answer from the 4 times table as we would be doing in class. One person calls out the calculations and the others circle the answer if they have it. First to circle all numbers shouts 'BINGO'.
Another game that you could do is matching pairs. We have included a document you can download and print, or you could make your own cards. Match the calculation to the answer. You could make it easy and be able to see what is written on the cards, or make it trickier by not being able to see what is written.
