Primary 3 Homework – Week from 28th November
Thanks for sending back forms for the museum trip next week. If possible we need two more parent helpers. If you think you might be able to come on Thursday 7th then please get in touch.
We are grateful to AOC Archeaology in Loanhead for a fantastic visit last week. It was amazing to learn how these historic treasures are uncovered, and also to handle axe-heads from Ancient Egypt and a Viking bracelet!
We are finishing off money this and moving back onto addition and subtraction. Our aim is to finish the term by extending this into higher numbers than we have worked with so far.
To support this, we are going to look again at place value. Having learned about hundreds, tens and units before we will now include thousands. A valuable game to cement this would be:
It will also be helpful to play + / – again, like we did at the beginning of term. This is where one player says a number while holding up a card that says, “+10” or “-10”, “+100” or “–100” and then the other player has to say the right number in response. To play with 10, 20 and 100 would be a good challenge.
We are moving back onto fiction books for the next few weeks. Pages to read at home will be written down in the grids as usual.
It’s been great having children showing their tombs in class – some fabulous work! Do let me know if you need resources. A reminder that it’d be great to have these for 5th December (next Tuesday) and that full details are up online tagged for P3.
Spelling words to practice this week are:
Please could everyone do the usual look, say cover, write and check (twice through the list) and then write sentences using as many of the words as possible.
