Please find below a list of the homework I’d like you to complete this week.
MyMaths (Due Wednesday 4th November)
- Number Facts
- The prefix ‘re’. To be tested Thursday 5th November.
Times Tables Rock Stars
- Children are to complete ‘Studio’ mode for 10 minutes
- Practise times tables at least 3 times per week
Reading Eggspress / Reading Plus
- Children should be aiming for 3 separate 20 minute sessions on these websites to meet the requirement for reading at home. Please ensure that, for those children who use Reading Eggs, you are using the Reading Eggspress part of this website for home reading. I have set some books and comprehension tasks for you.
English (Due Wednesday 4th November)
- Google Classroom – Year 3 Grammar – ‘a’ or ‘an’ activities.
I am aware that some people have been having issues editing the Google Classroom work at home. If you are accessing it on a tablet, you need to make sure you have downloaded the Google Classroom app, Google docs app, Google slides app and the Google Drive app. When you open in these apps it should let you edit the documents.
In addition, I have accessed Google Classroom with the children in class on several occasions and some children are clicking ‘turn in’ before they attempt the work. This should only be clicked when the work is complete, as this will prevent you from typing on it.
Dojo points will be awarded to all children who complete their Maths and English homework on time and to children who are reading at least 3 times each week.
In addition, if children read more than the expected amount, complete all of their homework on time and they remain on ‘green’ on our class behaviour system all week, they will be entered into a class raffle to be a member of ‘Always Club’. If chosen, they will win a lovely treat and prize during our celebration worship on Friday!
Thank you for your support.
Please find below this week’s homework, which is due on Wednesday 4th November:
- Factors and Primes OR
- Commutativity: Multiplication (the correct task has been set for each child)
- 5 minutes in Garage mode
- 5 minutes in Studio mode
- Challenge Words Stage 6 List 7 OR
- /n/ sound spelled gn or kn (the correct task has been set for each child)
Paper copies of homework will be sent home to children who do not have access to the internet.
Please note that homework is set on a Friday, and is due the following Wednesday. Any child who does not complete their homework on time will be asked to do this at break time.
We also now have a new Home Reading routine, as children are bringing school reading books home. On a Monday, children can choose a new school book if they need to, and take it home to read. If they finish, they bring it back in on Thursday so that it can be quarantined, ready to be put back on shelves the following week. If they have not finished their book, they can keep it at home until they need to change it. If they do not have a school reading book from Thursday to Monday, they can still access their Reading Plus/Eggs account, which will count towards their home reading (15 mins per session).
Children will need to bring their Reading Diaries into school every Monday and Thursday to be checked, so that we can monitor home reading.
Our reading week will begin each Friday (just like homework), and run until the following Thursday, when children bring in their diaries. If children do not bring in their diaries/do not complete their home reading, they will be asked to do this at break time.
Dojo points will be awarded to all children who complete their Maths and English homework on time and to children who are reading at least 3 times each week. This will be checked by Mrs Armitage and Mrs Jevans.
In addition, if children read more than the expected amount, complete all of their homework on time and they remain on ‘green’ on our class behaviour system all week, they will be entered into a class raffle to be a member of ‘Always Club’. If chosen, they will win a lovely treat on Friday afternoon!
From Monday all children will be given two books to take home. These will be collected on Thursday. Please try and read each book at least twice. Over the weekend there will be 2 books on Reading Express to access. Remember, Reading Eggs still counts as a ‘read’ also.
We have started looking at number bonds (2 numbers that make another number e.g. 6+4, 1+9 both make 10) and fact families (where you can create 4 calculations from the same numbers 1+9=10, 9+1=10, 10-1=9, 10-9=1).
Please complete the MyMaths task looking at number bonds. Additionally, log in to ‘Numbots’ and practise your basic skills for 10-15 minutes.
A knowledge organiser will come home in your child’s bag on Thursday. Please read through this with your child and discuss the terminology. These facts will be discussed each week during our Science lessons so it would be really beneficial to your child to have some knowledge of what these key facts are.
