Year 3 Homework Friday 6th October 2017
This week the children will receive their Schofield and Sims work books. We ask that the children complete no more than 30 minutes work or one page of their book. The children will benefit from any support while working through these books, as the wording of some questions can be harder to understand at times. Supporting your child with their Schofield and Sims will also deepen their understanding of the concepts they are covering. The questions get progressively harder throughout the book, so you may find that your child completes the first few pages with ease. If possible, we ask that parents mark any questions your child needed support to answer with an ‘A’ or ‘S’, so we can address any common misconceptions and difficulties in school.
Your child has been given a reading record book in which to record any reading done at home. Please encourage your child to read as much as possible at home. Reading to your child is also a valuable opportunity to develop their comprehension skills. Please encourage your child to record the date and book title in the record book every time they read. Your child will be rewarded in school for regular reading activities at home. If your child is still reading books from our structured reading scheme, they will be provided with books from school. We have a good selection of books in the school library which your child may borrow from to read at home. A new book can be chosen when books are returned to school. Alternatively, your child can choose to read books which you have at home. Please return the red record book to school by Wednesday in order for us to award reward points.
The children have been set a test to complete on SPAG.com. Within school, we have been looking at what happens to the spelling of words when different suffixes are added. Such as, removing the ‘e’ when adding –ing (come becomes coming).The children should complete the test on SPAG.com to support this learning at home and to enable us to monitor their progress.
The children have already received their SPAG.com usernames and passwords. If you are having trouble accessing the website or have misplaced the username and password, please see Miss Scriven or Mrs Furniss.
