I hope the fractions lessons are going well so far.

Please go on to:

Today we are looking at the next lesson. Please click on Week 1 and then watch the video for Lesson 3 Tenths.

While you are watching the video, it might tell you to pause it at certain points and complete some questions. Please take a look at the question sheet I attached below called ‘Tenths’. This sheet can also be downloaded from the White Rose website. Once you have finished the questions, you can check your answers using the answer sheet. If you are struggling while you are doing the worksheet, take another look at the video.

Here is a screenshot of the video from the White Rose website.



If the video isn’t working on the White Rose website, you can access it on:

Click on Groups and then on Year 3.

Scroll down to the post from 25th March to find the video ‘Tenths’.
