Happy Easter from the Y3 Team

The children have not been set any homework for the Easter holidays. All we ask, is that the children read regularly and practise their times tables. However, please encourage your child to enter the writing challenge. See the newsletter for further details.

We hope they enjoy their time off and that you all have a fun and peaceful Easter.

 

From the Y3 Team

Homework week ending 23.3.18

 

Maths

Your child has been given a times table sheet to help them to learn the multiplication facts. Please fold the paper each time so no answers are visible. The answers are on the sheet for your child to check when they have completed one of the columns.

Spag.com

The test we have set this week covers most areas of the Y3 grammar curriculum. There is a lot of new grammar vocabulary introduced in Y3, so please work with your child to complete the test. This is a learning activity rather than an assessment.

Reading

Please continue to read regularly with your child. When they have read a chapter or a page of an information text, please ask your child to tell you about what they have read. This will help to ensure your child can understand the text they are reading.

Stone Age Topic Day in Y3!

Y3 went back in time to the Stone Age today!

The children came to school dressed as cave boys and girls!

Y3 had to build their own homes using natural resources from the school woods. They also created cave art, using the different animals that were around in the Stone Age as inspiration.

They also had a chance to dig up artefacts like archaeologists, to find items from the Stone Age and other times in history.

We had a brilliant day. Thank you to all the parents for the fantastic costumes that the children came to school in.

 

See the photo gallery below, to see what we got up to.

Unfortunate Nutritionists in Y3

On Friday afternoon, Y3 learnt all about what people ate in the Stone Age by searching through some poo from cave men and women! The children found hares, reindeers, various leaves, small seeds, small stones, and many other interesting food items.

See the photo gallery below to see the children’s reactions and what they found! 

What we did instead of swimming

Swimming was cancelled today, but it gave us time to have some fun instead. The children were given 20 minutes of Golden time to make up for their disappointment. They enjoyed it so much that they chose to stay in at playtime to carry on.

Y3 Homework Friday 16th March 2018

Stone Age artefact
As part of our Stone Age topic, we would like the children to make a Stone Age artefact to bring into school to share with the class. This could be a Stone Age weapon or tool, such as a hammer or a small spear.
The following link is to information about the Amesbury Archer. http://www.bbc.co.uk/guides/z874kqt
Items buried with him might give you some inspiration. Arrowheads could be made from foil, and beakers could be made from salt dough.
The children will have two weeks to complete this homework. Please ensure the artefacts are returned to school by Wednesday 28th March.

Homophones

Your child has received a worksheet on the homophones ‘are’ and ‘our’. A homophone is a word that sounds the same but is spelt differently and has a different meaning. Please work through the sheet with your child, discussing when to use both ‘our’ and ‘are’.

Maths

Your child has received a worksheet on fractions of numbers. We noticed that some children struggled with this in their recent maths test. Please work through the sheet with your child to support their learning in school.

Topic Day reminder

On Tuesday 20th March, Y3 will be having a Stone Age Topic Day, where the children will be taking part in various Stone Age themed activities throughout the day.

We ask that the children come to school dressed as cave men and women! Please do not go out and buy anything new for this day, the children could simply come to school wearing brown clothes.
