Y3 Homework Friday 8th June 2018

Comprehension
Your child will be bringing home a comprehension all about the Romans. We ask that you read through this with your child and discuss the answers to each question in detail. Where possible, the children should highlight key parts of the information in the text and use this to help them answer certain questions.

Maths
In Maths, we are revising different topics from across the year. The children should complete the two worksheets sent home on reading data in various ways. Please make sure the children read the ‘key’ carefully to ensure their answers are correct.

Reading
Please continue to read regularly with your child. Reward points will be given to children who record what they have read in their reading diaries. 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.

Spelling
During their morning work, the children have been looking at –ly adverbs that are exceptions to the usual spelling rules. We have also looked at words from the Y3/4 statutory spelling list.

Please look through the workbooks with the children, complete any unfinished work and practise the spellings. The spellings are:

truly, duly, wholly, publicly, fully, dryly, daily, slyly, shyly, coyly

believe, appear, often, group, breath, continue, arrive, women, height, describe

Please check that your child can spell these words and use them correctly in a sentence. There will be a spelling test on these words.

Y3 Homework Friday 18th May 2018

Measures Research
In Y3, we have been, or will be, looking at different measures in Maths. We would like the children to research the most interesting measurements they can find to share with the class. This could be the tallest person in the world, the person with the biggest feet or even the longest fingernails! The children may write down their findings as a poster if they would like to earn extra reward points.

Schofield and Sims
The children should complete one page of their Schofield and Sims book and return their book to school by Wednesday 23rd May. Please complete any corrections before beginning a new test to ensure any misconceptions have been addressed.

Reading
Please continue to read regularly with your child. Reward points will be given to children who record what they have read in their reading diaries. 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.

Spelling
During their morning work, the children have been looking at creating adverbs using the suffix –ly. In some instances the –ly suffix changes the spelling of the root word, e.g. happy becomes happily. However, the –ly suffix does not always change the spelling, e.g. kind becomes kindly, but the spelling of kind does not change.

Please look through the workbooks with the children, complete any unfinished work and practise the spellings. The spellings are:

kindly, quickly, safely, rudely, sweetly, strongly, bravely, secretly, finally, usually

happily, angrily, lazily, busily, greedily, messily, wearily, cheekily, clumsily

Please check that your child can spell these words and use them correctly in a sentence. There will be a spelling test on these words.

Y3KS Crowning of Mary

On Monday afternoon, Y3KS crowned Mary after a visit to the prayer garden.

We collected flowers from the school field and carefully decorated the crown. We also wrote some special prayers to Our Lady, thanking her and asking for her help. We read these meaningful prayers and discussed why Mary is so special to us before we crowned Mary and said the Hail Mary.

The children enjoyed reflecting and taking the time to think about Our Lady.

Homework week ending 11.5.2018

 

Grammar

A test has been set for the children on spag.com. Please encourage your child to complete the test. We will analyse the results in school to see which questions the children struggled with, and we will focus on these skills in school.

Maths

Your child has been given a fractions sheet to complete this week. There are aditional fractions activities on My Maths to support learning. The username and password is the same as the one the children use at school.  Many children didn’t return their Schofield and Sims books to school. Please make sure they are returned to us by next Wednesday.

Reading

Please continue to read regularly with your child at home. Several of our parishes now produce weekly leaflets aimed at children. Please encourage your child to read them if they are available at your parish.

Eclipses in Y3

As part of our Light topic, one of our lovely parents came in to teach us all about eclipses. 

We looked at the size of the Earth, Moon and Sun and how far away they all are from each other. We used different sized balls to see how their sizes differ and how the distance of the Sun allows the Moon to hide the Sun during an eclipse!

We had an exciting afternoon and can't wait to learn more!
