Homework for Christmas holiday

 

Christmas is a time to be with family and friends, to relax and to have fun. The children have not been set formal homework tasks for the last week of term and the holiday to allow them to have a well-deserved break.

Our Victorians topic is nearly over now, and we will begin a new topic in January. It would be lovely for the children to finish the topic at home with some Victorian activities. It may help them to appreciate how exciting the toys are in the 21st century.

Poor Victorian children received very little, if anything, for Christmas, and gifts they did receive would probably have been homemade items. These would have included peg dolls and aeroplanes made from pegs, skipping ropes made from old ropes, and paper windmills.

More fortunate children would have made items using embroidery and crochet skills, and they would have painted using watercolours.

I would love to see anything that the children choose to make over the Christmas holiday.

 

We would like to wish you all a very happy and restful holiday.

With love from the Year 3 team.

Homework week ending 6.12.19

 

Maths

The homework this week is to reinforce addition of 2 digit numbers and vocabulary for addition.

The first couple of sheets can be completed by partitioning the numbers into tens and ones before adding them, but your child can choose to use another method if they prefer. Please check the calculations with your child. I’ve found that children enjoy using a calculator to check their work.

When adding the numbers on the next two sheets, the three digit calculations can be done in any order. Can your child spot any doubles to add first, or are there any pairs that make a multiple of 10?

Spelling

We have completed activities for the words in lists 1, 2 and 3 of the spelling sheet so far. See if your child can tell you what some of the words have in common (see the notes at the top of each column).

Spag.com

The test I have set is about sentence types. The children need to know which sentences are statements, commands, questions and exclamations. I have left the previous tests live too for the children who were unable to complete the tests so far.

Homework week ending 29.11.19

 

Talk homework

Please talk to your child about the trip to Abbeydale. The more they talk about it, the easier they will find the writing task. On Monday, the children will plan a recount of the trip, and on Tuesday they will write up the recount. The children will be encouraged to write in chronological order using time adverbs to link their ideas. These will include First of all,   after that,   in the afternoon… (see the sheet I have attached which the children will use as a word bank when they write their recount).

Please encourage your child to use conjunctions as they talk to you about the trip Eg

Grammar

Your child has been set tests on Spag.com to practise adding a suffix to words, and to practise conjunction types. Some of the questions are quite tricky. Please help your child to complete the tests rather than them guessing the answers independently.

Maths

Please show your child the maths sheet attached. It gives examples of number sequences for the children to complete. Ask your child to explain what the next three numbers are and what the pattern is. After completing these sequences, challenge your child to think of sequences for you to complete.
