Homework

Here is a copy of the spellings we are looking at this week (the ‘ai’ sounds) in case you are having problems with downloading the document.

For maths homework we would like the children to practice the 10 times tables. If you need to challenge yourself further, make sure you can also recall division facts for the 10 times table (e.g. 90 divided by 10 = 9) and practice the 2 and the 5 times tables also!

When you have done some homework take a photo and post on seesaw. You should have the seesaw code in your reading record 🙂

Homework, Reading Records and Reading Books


Homework
:

As we are trying to avoid cross-contamination of objects between home and school, we are now going to be uploading homework weekly on the blogs for you to access. 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:

  1. Open the Seesaw class app.
  2. Tap “I’m a student”.
  3. 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 Monday and it will need to be completed by Friday morning. Your child’s work will then be checked by staff in school.

Reading Records:

As well, we will be sending home Reading Records for the children to keep at home for now. When a child has read at home, the reading record can be filled in as before, however, rather than sending the reading record back into school, your child can take a photo of their reading record (as shown above) showing us what they have read or leave us a comment telling us directly on the app. That way, we can continue to keep a log of who is reading at home for our Reader Leader award!

Reading Books:

For the moment, children will be choosing books, with the guidance from staff in school, within their class libraries, to avoid cross-contamination from different bubbles within the school. If your child brings a book home to read and finishes it, they can bring it back to school the next day and the book will be quarantined for 72 hours before being returned to the class library. Your child can then choose another book to read at home. Of course, a child can also read a book from home too! As well as physical copies of books, we have also signed up to Oxford Owl where children can access lots of e-books to read online (we can give guidance of what level books the children should be reading via your child’s Seesaw page). Here are the log in details:

This is the final shout out for this academic year!! Thank you so much Sophia for making such a lovely card. It means a lot. You have been aa absolute pleasure to teach. Keep up the brilliant work! 🙂

Once again, a very big well done to year 3 for being so amazing despite the circumstances. Many thanks to parents as well who actively engaged with home learning to ensure that children’s learning continued. It would not have been possible without your support.

English – Grammar

Our grammar focus this week is subordinate clause.

Look at the first example: Like a bullet speeding through the air, he ran through the door.

he ran through the doormakes sense on its own, so it is the main clause.

Like a bullet speeding through the airdoes not make sense on its own but has to depend on the other part to make sense, so it is a subordinate clause.

Watch the following links to learn more about the subordinate clause. In the 2nd video, they have used the word ‘independent clause’ for the main clause and ‘dependent clause‘ for the subordinate clause:

Top tip: Usually there is a conjunction at the start of the subordinate clause.
