Year 3 Homework
We will be setting our homework here via the school website. Please check in to see the tasks set.
Weekly Homework Expectations
Reading: Daily 15 mins. This should be a mixture of reading online via myon and your reading book sent from school. Please ensure your reading book is in school everyday so we can listen to your child read.
Maths: 25 mins over the week of ttrockstars (5 mins approximately a day). Multiplication practice is essential.
Task: 1 hour a week: We will be setting open ended tasks linked to our curriculum (often our wider curriculum geography,science,art etc.). We will give you a few weeks to complete these tasks and often they will be creative ways to demonstrate our curriculum learning. If we give you 3 weeks to complete the task we expect the work handed in, to show 3 hours worth of work. We are always happy to provide you with resources if you need anything, please ask a member of the team.
This work will be set here on the class page.
Set: 6/11/20 To be returned:30/11/20
In Year 3 we are completing more creative and imaginative homework which is linked to our learning in class. Our first task is Science. In class we are learning all about the human body. We would like you to create a piece of work that teaches people about bones and muscles. The more creative the better! This could be a life size model, an information booklet, a song, a poster, a 3D model absolutely anything!
Here are some ideas:
We have given you three weeks to complete the task so we are expecting something good!! If you need any resources to help you make something please ask one of the Year 3 team - we are happy to give you anything that we have in stock at school to help you!
Forest School wb 9.11.20
This week we had our first Forest School session outside in the Forest School area (in between the 2 playgrounds). We had a great time and already started developing a range of skills. We had to investigate, adapt and explore the area and how we could use the resources. We also had to develop our team work skills and physical skills. We climbed trees, built shelters, made dens in the bushes and a few us even got chance to use the saw.
Congratulations 3H ttrockstar Champions!
243 points Vs 79 points
Special shout out to the top three scorers
