P3 Homework for week beginning 28th August

Primary 3 Homework – Week Beginning 28th August

Homework this term will be set and collected on Tuesdays.

As the new year begins it will help us all to get some practice going over the basics.

With homework activities that are not written down (e.g. the maths games) please could you write a note in your homework jotter to tell me what you did.

Thanks very much!

Mr Buchan




Play “Number Bonds Tennis”. This is where one person says a number between 0 – 10 and their partner has to respond with the number that would add up for 10. For example, 5 -> 5 or 0 -> 10 etc. See how fast you can go without making mistakes!

Practise counting forwards out loud in 2s, 5s and 10s.



Everybody has new reading books. Please read the pages indicated on your bookmarks.

If possible, please could you read some of the pages out loud to an adult.

Spelling – Please practise these common words:

the                   that

of                     are

and                  for

you                  was

A great method is to look, say, cover, write and then check each word. This is how we will practise in class. Please try to practise each word twice in this way.

Try to make up a sentence that uses three of the words from this week’s list.

Lasswade: There is a current S1 Information Evening planned for Thursday 7 September .  There is also an S1 Parents’ Family Learning Evening on Tuesday 3 October and on Wednesday 1 November, there is a P7 Information Evening.  Parents’ Evenings generally commence at 5.00 pm- this would be the most beneficial one to attend.


Open evening – The evening includes a tour of the school, an opportunity to meet teachers and for current pupils to share with you some of their learning experiences. The evening is generally well attended and visitors chave commented on the wecoming atmosphere and the strong realtionships evident between pupils and staff.
