English: In English we learnt to proof-read and edit missing punctuation in our work. We went over the essential requirement of a sentence and then had a go at correcting some of the sentences and writing them down in our books.
Maths: In maths we looked at different ways to represent numbers up to 100. We used base 10 and other representations to guess the number. Have a go at answering some of the questions given below.
Reading: We continued reading some more pages from our whole class reading book, The Firework Maker’s Daughter and answered some questions based on the text.
Here is your homework for this week. Remember to submit your work on Seesaw once complete, using the Seesaw code that is stuck into your Reading Records.
English: This week we will be working on the common exception words. Practise your spellings for this week using look, cover, write, check. Practise each word 5 times and then put 5 of these words into sentences.
Remember to read and record it in your reading record every night!
Maths: Times tables
Please practise your target times table.
You can also go on these websites and practise! Remember, you have your times table rockstar’s username and password stuck in your Reading record Book!
As we did last year, we will be uploading homework weekly on the blogs for you to access. In some circumstances, we will issues paper copies of homework to some children. In order for us to check the children’s homework, we have created individual Seesaw codes for the children, so they can scan their own code and take a photo of their homework to submit, and we will be able to see it in school. If you are unsure how how to use Seesaw, you can follow the steps below or watch the video:
To sign in with a Home Learning Code:
Open the Seesaw class app.
Tap “I’m a student”.
Tap the blue “scan code” button and scan the Home Learning Code or type in your Home Learning Text Code.
In year 3, we will be setting Maths and English homework on a Friday and it will need to be completed by the following Friday morning. Your child’s work will then be checked by staff in school.
Reading Records and Reading Books:
Children are expected to read at home every night and their Reading Record bought to school daily so we can keep a log of who is reading at home for our Reader Leader award! When your child has read at home, the reading record can be filled in by the adult who has listened to them read.
Children will choose books that are appropriate to their reading age, with guidance from staff in school, which will be sent home. They can also read books they have at home too. When they have finished reading a book from school, the child needs to bring it back to school so it can be returned and the child issued with another book.
To kickstart our topic of tremors, Ash and Aspen had a wonderful time making buildings out of spaghetti and marshmallows that could withstand the earthquake! The children successfully had a go at making them and then we tested their buildings by putting them on a table and shaking/moving the table.
To our delight, most of the buildings stayed intact! A big well done to all the children!
