Year 3 Homework Friday 22nd September 2017

Maths

Last week, the children began to calculate amounts of money and work out whether certain amounts of money were more than (>) or less than (<) others. The children have been given a worksheet, based around what we looked at last week, to work on at home. We ask that the children return these by Wednesday in order to receive reward points for their efforts.

There are also numerous interactive games for the children to access on the website below. They can calculate amounts of money to buy items and extend their learning by working out the change needed when paying with given amounts.

Reading

Your child has been given a reading record book in which to record any reading done at home. Please encourage your child to read as much as possible at home. Reading to your child is also a valuable opportunity to develop their comprehension skills. Please encourage your child to record the date and book title in the record book every time they read. Your child will be rewarded in school for regular reading activities at home. If your child is still reading books from our structured reading scheme, they will be provided with books from school. We have a good selection of books in the school library which your child may borrow from to read at home. A new book can be chosen when books are returned to school. Alternatively, your child can choose to read books which you have at home. Please return the red record book to school by Wednesday in order for me to award reward points.

English (talk homework)

In English, we have been looking at Michael Rosen’s, ‘We’re All Going on a Bear Hunt’. Y3KS The children have started to plan their own stories about going on an adventure to find an animal of their choice and will be bringing their story plan home to show you. We ask that the children share their story ideas with you and discuss their ideas for the various settings.

Y3AF The children have written their stories this week. Please ask your child to tell you about the story they have written and what their writing targets are for their next story. (They should have brought their story plan home to share with you).

If your child is involved in the Read Write inc sessions, please help them to describe story settings in their reading book or a picture book you may have at home.

Homework week beginning 15.9.2017

Grammar

I have registered all the children with Spag.com website. ‘Spag’ stands for spelling and grammar. Your child should have a password slip to access the site. The site will log which questions the children answer correctly and which are incorrect. I will use the data to identify the areas to teach in school.

We are currently working on writing stories. The children are being encouraged to add information to sentences to give the reader details about the story setting, and they are being encouraged to explain events more clearly by adding extra information to sentences. The children need to choose conjunctions (also called connectives) carefully to extend their sentences. The Spag.com activity this week involves selecting appropriate conjunctions to complete sentences.

Reading

Your child has been given a reading record book in which to record any reading done at home. Please encourage your child to read as much as possible at home. Reading to your child is also a valuable opportunity to develop their comprehension skills. Please encourage your child to record the date and book title in the record book every time they read. Your child will be rewarded in school for regular reading activities at home. If your child is still reading books from our structured reading scheme, they will be provided with books from school.

Alternatively, your child can choose to read books which you have at home. Please return the red record book to school by Wednesday in order for me to award reward points.

RE   (talk homework)

Our first ‘Come and See’ topic for the term is ‘Homes’. Please talk to your child about your home and what makes it special for your family. During our first RE lesson, the children discussed why they feel their home is special to them. Please ask your child to share their thoughts with you.

Why Weight?

This week the children in Y3AF began a programme called ‘Why Weight?’. It is a programme to educate the children about nutrition. The leaders have provided some resources for you to look at and discuss with your child. Please encourage your child to reflect on their eating habits to identify the most nutritious meals and snacks they eat over the weekend.

Please note- The children in Y3KS will complete this programme at a later date.
