Primary 3 Homework – Week from 31st October

I am looking forward to meeting many of you on Monday and Tuesday next week. Thank you for your help rearranging this. Jotters and other written work will be available for you to look through on those days.

Our new big topic has been delayed by some time-sensitive art this week. Please watch out for amazing Christmas card designs coming home to finish and return.

Best wishes,

Mr Buchan



Having had a first run through multiplication this past week, we are now going to be working on money. The plan is that this will take us back to addition and subtraction in a way that extends our previous work into higher numbers and harder problems.

Top Marks has an excellent game which asks you either to give exact money or to give change (harder). Playing under “Mixed Coins” up to £1 will mirror where we will start in class.


However, even better than playing online would be chances for the children to use coins in real shops. Asking them to buy things with the right coins or to check the change will really bring alive the practical importance of this maths.



Pages to be read from class reading books will be written down in the grids as usual.



Thank you for all the great vocabulary you found last week. I really enjoyed reading your words and sentences.

For this week, can you find examples of different punctuation? This could be online, in a newspaper or in a book you are reading. Copy the sentences into your homework jotters.

We have been learning to use   .    ,    !    ?    “     …



Spelling words to practice this week are:

thin                  thank

think                three

with                 that

then                 would

could               friend

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.
