Homework week ending 15.3.2019

 

Spelling

This week we have been learning how to choose the correct homophones from the spelling lists for week 3. Please choose a homophone and see if your child can say a sentence using the word appropriately. Eg knot- I can’t undo the knot in my shoe laces.

Maths

This week we have been identifying equivalent fractions. The homework sheet your child has been given will reinforce this learning. In addition, using 12 and 24 items, please see if your child can identify a quarter, a third, two thirds etc of these amounts.

Reading

Please continue to read regularly with your child at home. Please ask your child to summarise what they have read by telling you the main information.

World Book Day 2019

Here are some more photos of St Marie's children celebrating World Book Day, last week.

EYFS and KS1 had an assembly at the start of the day to explain why we celebrate WBD, followed by a story read by Mr Fernandes and finally a 'catwalk' of all the fabulous costumes. The younger children participated in a carousel of activities in classes and the older children engaged in story-related activities with their teachers. On Friday the whole school came together for a celebratory assembly to showcase what they had done on WBD. For more details, see the newsletter.

Each child was given a World Book Day Token which they can exchange for a special book at any participating bookshop. They have until 31st March to do this.

Thank you to all the children, parents and staff for making the day such a successful one.

Homework week ending 8.3.2019

 

Reading

Your child has been given a reading comprehension to complete. It is about Stonehenge. Please help your child to locate the information in the text before answering the questions. Any additional research about this site would be great as the children will begin to write their own information texts about our history topic next week.

Maths

Next week, the children will complete a maths assessment. The assessments cover the whole of the maths curriculum for Y3, so some areas will not have been taught yet. The booklet your child has been given is similar to what they will be doing in school, so it will give you an idea about what the children are expected to do at this age. Please help your child to complete as much of the booklet as they can. This will give your child chance to revise areas of maths that we covered a while ago, but they may have forgotten.

World Book Day -Friday

Thank you for supporting World Book Day. Our theme in Year 3 was to promote our favourite books to one another. We are drawn to certain books by their cover, but this isn't always a reliable way to find books that we are going to enjoy. The children told us about the books they had chosen and what they like about them. Hopefully, all the children will have ides about which books they would like to read next.
