Homework


Thank you everyone who completed their homework on time – to remind you, homework will be set on a Friday (times tables, spellings and then either Maths or Writing) and it is due in on Thursday. If you have any problems completing the homework, please let us know and your child can attend Homework Club on Friday lunchtime.

This week we have set Maths homework:  We are completing multiplication using the column method this week and to help support your child with this we have set homework linked to this. If your child finds this tricky and you need any further support with this – please come along to our Coffee Morning on Tuesday or speak with your child’s class teacher.

Spellings: Our spellings this week include adding suffixes beginning with a vowel to words with more than 1 syllable: beginning, beginner, occurring, occurred, preferring, preferred. The Year 3 words are: woman, various, peculiar, special. Please ensure you complete the spelling sheet when you hand in your homework on Thursday – do not hand your homework in early as the spelling sheet will not be fully completed!

Reading: Remember to read at home at least 4 times a week and ensure that the reading diary is signed at the bottom of the page – reading diaries will be checked on a Monday morning and a raffle ticket will be given to all who have read at least 4 times!

Mental Maths: We have sent home times tables sheets to complete and discuss with your child – please ensure they are handed in with the homework – thank you!

Homework will be set on a Friday (times tables, spellings and then either Maths or Writing) and it is due in on Thursday. If you have any problems completing the homework, please let us know and your child can attend Homework Club on Friday lunchtime.

This week we have set Maths homework:  We are working really hard on our times tables and looking how to complete multiplication using the column method. To help with this new skill in school, we have set multiplication homework. Some children may find this tricky – please only complete a few rows, some may find it easy – please complete all and the challenge too!

Spellings: Our spellings this week include adding suffixes beginning with a vowel to words with more than 1 syllable: limited, limiting, offered, offering, benefited, benefiting, focused and focusing. The Year 3 words are: accident, build, recent, forward. Please ensure you complete the spelling sheet when you hand in your homework.

Homework

 

This week we have set handwriting homework.  We are working really hard on our handwriting at school and we thought it would be a good idea to show you some of our handwriting joins!  Also the children have worked so hard on their writing and Maths this week that they just needed a simple homework to complete this week! 

Spellings: assessment – using the suffix -ly when the root word ends in al.  The ly spelling words are: comically, actually, eventually, magically, logically, equally, generally and accidentally.  The Year 3 words are actual, material, accident and guard.  Please ensure you complete the spelling sheet when you hand in your homework.

Reading: remember to read at home at least 4 times a week and ensure that the reading diary is signed at the bottom of the page – reading diaries will be checked on a Monday morning and a raffle ticket will be given to all who have read at least 4 times!

Mental Maths: We have sent home times tables sheets to complete and discuss with your child – they are all doing well with their time table but would benefit from additional practice at home – thank you!
