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.
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.
