Year 3 Blog including homework update 2.2.23

Some super learning, resilience and perseverance this week, well done Year 3. 

English This week continue to focus on ‘The Mousehole Cat’, the children wrote some great descriptions about the raging storm, retold the story verbally and composed their own acrostic poem’s about the song Mowzer the cat would sing to calm the Great Storm Cat down. The children had some great ideas.

Maths We have been comparing, adding and subtracting fractions. The children used their knowledge of fractions to solve problems. We move onto addition and subtraction of three digit numbers next week. 

Guided Reading This week we continued to focus on ‘Fantastic Mr Fox’, inferencing, selecting and retrieving information to answer questions. In readiness for our learning next week, the children may like to listen to or read chapter 7.

Science Next Week- Miss Lever will be conducting a ‘chocolate experiment’ next Monday (6.2.23). Please if your child has any allergies we are not already aware of, let us know.  

Homework update in Year 3

We strongly encourage your child to make links in their learning. Therefore weekly homework

  • Reading (Try to read with your child at least 3 times a week, little and often can really make a difference. Key skills we focus on comprehension and inferencing.
  • Times tables (TT Rockstars / Timestable cards/ Hit the button

Occasionally, we may put extra challenges on our weekly blog related to learning that week or in preparation for learning.  

We value the importance of family life, experiences and extra outside curricular activities, therefore do not expect all tasks set Ed Shed (spelling, maths and phonics) to be completed each week. These activities are here as extra support.
