HOME LEARNING

As a school we're focusing on home learning.  This lets students apply their learning in new contexts.  Each week, Y3 will be asked to participate in home learning activities. These will include:

Maths 

  • Mathletics. These activities work alongside the maths topics taught during the current unit. They are set each week on a Wednesday.
  • Also ensure your child is completing their daily practice in their Basic Facts book. This needs to be brought into school everyday as we mark it together in class.  
  • Times table practice.  

English

  • Daily reading and discussion
  • Spelling, punctuation and grammar - encourage your child to identify SPaG elements in their reading book.  They all have their own copy of the SPaG booklet to help them.
  • Spellings - we learn groups of spellings which follow rules which can be applied to other words and also be used in pieces of writing.
  •  

Other 

We are looking at the artist  Giuseppe Arcimboldo  and we are hoping to do an autumn portrait in his style. Please could the children collect autumn things to stick onto our portraits. leaves of different colours shapes and sizes, seeds, dried flowers, dried fruit etc. For Thursdays art lesson (12th October).
