Year 3 (101)

Abbeydale Industrial Hamlet

Congratulations to the Year 3 children who had a successful day learning about life in Victorian times at Abbeydale Industrial Hamlet. The photograph shows the children before we set off. Note how they are posing as they would have done in Victorian times with their most serious facial expressions. The children learned about Victorian toys, they did the washing for Mrs Tyzac, and they learned about the jobs that Victorian people did there.

We are the first school to visit who had a child able to say what d stands for with old money. Well done to Magnus who knew that it was ‘denarius’ a Roman coin. Humphrey knew so much information already about the site that he was invited by our guide to explain the how the furnaces worked. I think Year 3 will have given a very good impression to the staff of Abbeydale Industrial Hamlet.

Homework week ending 5.10.2018

 

Reading

October 4th was National Poetry Day. In school, Mrs Garnett and I shared poems that we enjoy reading with the children. For reading homework this week, please encourage your child to read poems with you to develop reading pace and intonation. It would be lovely if your child could bring a copy of a poem they particularly reading enjoy to share with the rest of the class.

Maths

The learning focus for this week has been on place value and adding or subtracting 10 and 100 from 3 digit numbers. We have also been rounding numbers to the nearest 10. Your child has been given a booklet with activities which support some of the learning they have been doing in class.

Spelling

This week we have been learning spellings from lists 3 and 4. Please encourage your child to learn these words at home for a spelling test next Tuesday.

Have a good weekend,

Mrs Furniss and Mrs Garnett

Our Recipe for a Happy Home

       

We have almost finished our RE topic about Homes, and today the children created their own recipes for a happy home. I have taken sentences from the recipes of different children to share some of their lovely ideas. Enjoy…

 

 

Put some trust in with a dash of laughter

Next, mix the right choices and patience into the bowl

Shred some joy into the bowl

Remember to put some calmness into it

Take away the badness and add the friendship

Spread in some niceness just to make it perfect

Squeeze some good manners into the bowl

Pour in some caring and beat for ten minutes

Sprinkle some kind words on, and bake it in the oven.

Decorate with happiness

Cut it into pieces of love and share it with everyone

Enjoy the good times with your family.

Homework week ending 28th September

Maths

This week I have sent a revision booklet covering a range of maths skills. The booklet is from the Y2 Maths Mastery curriculum. This should take a maximum of 30 minutes. We revisit different areas of the maths curriculum throughout the year to revise language and calculation skills. Please support your child to complete as many questions as possible in the thirty minutes. Please identify any questions your child struggles to complete to enable me to select appropriate revision content for the Maths Meetings.

Reading

Thank you for reminding your child to return their reading record book to school. Please continue to read with your child at home.

In our English lessons we have been using time adverbials (Adverbs of time tell us when an action happened, for how long, and how often) eg later that afternoon, next, suddenly, soon afterwards, moments later, that afternoon. Please encourage your child to look out for these words and phrases as they read.

We have also looked at contracted words eg didn’t doesn’t can’t. Please help your child to look for these words as they read, and see if they can identify which letters are missing.

Spelling

Please help your child to spell the words for week 4 on the new spelling sheet given out this week. We have been working on these words in class. There will be a spelling test of some of the words next week. If your child is struggling to spell all the words, please focus only on the words your child is most likely to need in their independent writing.

Please continue to use Spelling Frame at home to support the learning of our weekly spellings.

Homework week ending 21st September

Homework week ending 21st September

Maths

In our maths lessons we have been adding two digit numbers using partitioning ( eg 47 becomes 4 tens and 7 ones), regrouping (exchanging ten ones for a 10 stick) and ‘make ten’ (moving up to the next multiple of 10). Your child has been given a sheet with calculations on it. Please spend a maximum of 30 minutes on this maths homework. If your child is struggling, please make a note of this on the work.

Above are examples of how your child could complete the calculation   37 + 28. They all involve partitioning 28 into 2 tens and 8 ones.

 

Reading

Thank you for reminding your child to return their reading record book to school. Please continue to read with your child at home. 23 children returned their books this week. Thank you to the parents who helped their children to cover their books. Reading books have been changed where necessary. Please return the reading books to school when your child has finished reading them to keep our stocks at a good level for other children to choose from.

Spelling

Please help your child to spell the words for week 3 on the spelling sheet. We have been working on these words in class. There will be a spelling test of some of the words next week. If your child is struggling to spell all the words, please focus only on the words your child is most likely to need in their independent writing.

We have used spelling Frame in school to support the learning of our weekly spellings, and the children have enjoyed using the site. Please encourage your child to use the site at home.
