# P3 Homework for Week Beginning 18th September

Primary 3 Homework – Week Beginning 18th September

I hope everyone had a good September weekend.

Our first project has been in science, looking at the human body. We have been investigating how blood carries oxygen and nutrients. We even acted this out! Next we will learn about our five senses.

Thanks again for all your support with home learning.

Best wishes,

Mr Buchan

Numeracy – Big Maths

You may remember Learnits from last year. These are number facts that pupils need to know as quick as a flash! In class we say it should be like when someone asks your name – you don’t need any time to think, you just know.

Our Learnits for this term are:

10 x table                    7 + 4 = 11

8 + 4 = 12                    9 + 4 = 13

8 + 3 = 11                    9 + 3 = 12

The adding sums also have their associated “fact families”.

Coming home this week are Learnit flashcards so everyone can practise. Please can these stay at home for regular use throughout the term. Each Friday the children will have a quickfire Learnit challenge, trying to beat their own scores from the previous weeks.

Pages to be read from class reading books will be written down onto the grids as usual. If children finish these books, please do still hear some pages out loud.

Thanks also for making a start with the Home Reading Logs. It is interesting and useful to see what everyone has been enjoying!

Spelling

Our words for this week are:

feet                  sweet

green               free

three                of

words              you

was                  to

As well as our usual look, say, cover, write and check (twice for each word) try making a wordsearch using this week’s words. See if anyone at home can solve the puzzle! (I will stick wordsearch grids into the homework jotters.)
