Long Term Plan

Homework

 

Homework Practise is split into two sections: Compulsory and Optional Home Practise.

COMPULSORY PRACTICE:

Spellings

Weekly spellings will be given out on a Friday and we expect the children to learn them during the course of the week.  We ask that this sheet should stay at home in order for your child to learn these spellings. The children will then be tested on these spellings on the following Friday.  The spelling groups will be posted below (just incase your child forgets them).

Friday 14th January

Times Tables

This week we have continued to focus on our 2, 3, 4, 5 and 10 tables . Please can your child practise these at home by writing them out. You can then question them (in and out of order).

0x3=0

1x3=3

2x3=6

3x3=9

4x3=12

5x3=15

....... up to 12x3=36

Reading

We request that your children reads at least 3/4times a week. We would love it if they are doing a mixture of independent reading and reading aloud to a grown up.

Please record all reading in their reading diary.

 

OPTIONAL HOME PRACTISE

There will be a few optional tasks for your children to have a go at every week using our two online resources- Sumdog and EDshed. The children's login details can be found in their reading diary. Please let us know if you have any trouble logging in.

 

This week's Sumdog task will link to the 2 or 3 times table, depending on their level of ability in this area.

 

This optional Edshed work links to our weekly spellings that have be sent out.

 

At the moment, we are mainly using our purple mash software in school to work through set units.  Please feel free to login at home and re-visit work we have previously done or for them to play with the other paint/draw tools. Login details are again in the diary.

Art Fine Motor Activities

The children in Year 3 are enjoying developing their artistic talents and they have asked me to share some of the pieces we have used for inspiration. Please find the images below for them to try at home if they wish.  They just need a black marker pen/whiteboard pen and a black fine line handwriting pen.
