    Year 3 Homework: 9.9.19 Completed by: 16.9.19
    Hi all,
    Homework will be given every Monday and will be due in the following Monday. This will include a piece of English, a piece of Maths and weekly spellings. Our class spelling tests will be on Tuesdays. The children will earn right raffle tickets/dojo points for every piece of homework they complete and every time they change their reading book too. They will be awarded passport points for every reading scheme book they read as well as 1-5 points for their passport (reading for pleasure) book. They can also log into Bug Club and read any of their allocated books on there.
    All the children have been given a My Maths login which is stuck in their homework book. I have set an activity on place value and counting as this week’s Maths task. If there any problems with the login or computer access at home just let me know and we can make arrangements in school.
    Their TTRS logins have been stuck in too. If I can see they have been on to practise their tables, then they can earn right raffle tickets/dojo points for this too.
    In English, we are going to be building up our language to describe dragons and the settings they are in. For homework, I would like the children to choose a picture of a dragon (or draw one themselves) and record language that describes it. They can think about what it looks like, what it feels like, what it might smell like, what it sounds like and how it might move too. Their language examples will be added to our class word banks and their magpie books too.
    I have uploaded our first class newsletter onto our class page. It tells you about the topics we will be covering. If you have any questions, feel free to ask.
    Many thanks,
    Miss Beale

    Year 3 Maths Homework: 16.9.19 Completed by: 23.9.19
    Thank you for doing last week’s My Maths homework. I have set an activity on simple addition and subtraction. If there any problems with the login or computer access at home just let me know and we can make arrangements in school.
    English homework is to draw a setting for their dragon and label it with descriptive language. The ideas can be added to our working wall and their magpie books.
    Many thanks,

    Homework: 23:9:19 Completed by: 30.9.19
    Next week, we will be looking at instructions. Can you write down times when we need to read/write instructions e.g. recipes for cooking and baking.

    Last week, we have been working on mental strategies for addition. We have been using dienes and numberlines to show how ones tens and hundreds can be added to a number.
    If you need to draw the dienes or numberlines as a model you can. I have also put on MyMaths revision activity, from Y2 on addition and subtraction too. – questions in their homework books.

    Spelling pattern: ai/ay sound but spely in different ways e.g. eight

    From marking work, and conversations in a few lessons, it is apparent that some of our class have forgotten some basic life skills. Our homework this week is to sort these out.
    • Spell our first and last name correctly, including capital letters in the correct place
    • Know the order of the alphabet and which letters come before and after others when not starting from the beginning – this will help massively with using the class dictionaries
    • Knowing our address

    Spelling: wk 1 of homophones (see sheet in their homework books

    This half term’s newsletter:

    Y3 newsletter Autumn 1 2019


    10.10.19 You should be really proud of your children. Our workshop was fab and Mr Trevor commented on how settled the children are at this early stage in Year 3 and asked some great historical questions. I am one very proud teacher!

    4.10.19 As you may be aware, our workshop was postponed on Wednesday because Mr Trevor was poorly. Hopefully, he will be better for next week as we have rescheduled our workshop for Tuesday instead.

    Miss Beale

    23.9.19 You should all have received an email about our workshop on 2.10.19. Any questions, let me know.

    Miss Beale

    13.9.19 Just a quick note to say that until October half term, our PE slots have changed. We will be outdoors on Wednesdays and indoor on Thursdays. This is so the children can work with Lauren, a personal trainer, to develop our fitness. The children thoroughly enjoyed their first session, yesterday, and we are all looking forward to next week.

    4.9.19 We have had a busy first couple of days in Y3. The children look really smart in their new uniforms. Thank you for your efforts. Miss Beale
