Today we are going to be reading scales that go up different amounts (2's, 5's and 10's). We will look at the parts of a scale and how to read it, making sure that you write the kg/g at the end! Then we will move on to comparing weights and problem solving activities. There are two sets of activities for each maths set, which are numbered and can be written straight into your home learning book/piece of paper.

Today we are looking at weighing objects using kilograms (kg). This lesson is split into two parts, so there are two sets of activities for you to have a go at. The first part of the lesson is looking at using balancing scales and adding up the numbers on the weights to find the mass of each object in kg. The second part is using measuring scales to read the weight of objects. We will think about what objects would be measured using grams and which objects we would measure using kilograms. There are a couple of different problem solving activities for you to have a go at for the second activity. All of the work can be written straight into your home learning book/piece of paper.

Today we are looking at weighing objects using grams. This lesson is split into two parts, so there are two sets of activities for you to have a go at. The first part of the lesson is looking at using balancing scales and adding up the numbers on the weights to find the mass of each object. The second part is using measuring scales, which you will need to read in order to find out how many grams each object weighs. Your tasks will require you to think about which objects are the heaviest and lightest, so think about the terminology we used yesterday when comparing weights. Each maths sets activity are explained in the video and can be written straight into your home learning book or on your paper at home, just pause the video to complete.

Today we are going to start our new topic - weight and mass! We are going to look at comparing weights and the terminology we use to describe when something is heavy or light. There is a great interactive activity you can have a go at at home, I will show you how to use it in the video, try and use the terminology we have discussed in the beginning to describe how the scales look as you add new shapes each time e.g. two triangles are equal to one circle. Here is the link if you would like to have a go at the activity: https://www.nctm.org/Classroom-Resources/Illuminations/Interactives/Pan-Balance----Shapes/ The activities and extensions for each maths set are explained in the video and you can pause and write down the answers when your maths set work appears on the screen. It can be written straight into your home learning book, no need for printing :) Enjoy Year 3!:)
