P3 Homework Week Beginning 11th September

Primary 3 Homework – Week Beginning 11th September

Thanks again for continued support with home learning.

Please do feel free to write comments in jotters about how your children have been finding the work.

Best wishes,

Mr Buchan

 

 

Numeracy

For a few more weeks we are going to maintain our focus on the basics of number order and addition / subtraction. Please could I therefore ask you to keep on playing  +1 / -1 ,  +2 / -2  and  +10 / -10.

  • Can you get faster?
  • How many in a row can you get right?

(For a reminder of how to play, please see last week’s homework sheet on the school website.)

We have also been thinking about how numbers are made up of hundreds, tens and units. A helpful game online for revising this would be:

You might even want to have a go with thousands!

 

Reading

Hearing children read out loud is very valuable. Even ten minutes on this each evening will boost skills and confidence.

Pages to read from class books will continue to be marked. As we try to read lots during the day, however, it may be that the children are finishing these books in school. If that happens, it is still great to hear pages from them read out loud.

We would also encourage children to read their own books at home. To keep a record of this, new Personal Reading Logs have been enclosed this week for the coming term.

 

Spelling

Please could everyone practise these words:

feet                  free

green               sleep

three                said

she                  had

children            they

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. Don’t forget capital letters and full stops!
