# Primary 3 Homework from 30th January

Primary 3 Homework – Week from 30th January

We’re really looking forward to Friday’s assembly and showing all our learning about Scotland. It’ll be great to see you there if you are able to make it (11:45am).

In RME with Mrs Wallace the children are going to be learning about weddings. If you have any photos from family weddings it would be fun for the children to see some in class. Please don’t send anything too precious though! A copy or even a drawing of the photo would be absolutely fine.

Best wishes,

Mr Buchan

Numeracy

In numeracy this week we will have a final ‘exit pass’ to check understanding of the columns method for addition. I have been very pleased with how well this has been picked up.

After addition we are now moving on to subtraction. To start with we will go back to empty number lines to ensure solid understanding of this process. Then (next week) we will look at the written method for subtraction in columns, which people often find slightly trickier than the method for addition.

To get our brains fired up for all this, I have set a new Sum Dog challenge which is focussed on subtraction.

Please let me know if you need a reminder of login details or if you have been having any compatibility issues.

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

Writing

To help develop our VCOP, the children are each going to start a writing Swag Bag. This is somewhere they can write down great words or phrases that they come across, storing them up for whenever we are writing and they need some inspiration.

To get a few things in the bag, please could everyone try to find four ‘wow words’ this week? A wow word can be something we just like, or maybe a new word that we did not know before. They could come from reading online, story books or a newspaper. They could even come from something we hear.

If these four words are written into homework jotters they can then be copied across in class.

Spelling

A few common words have been cropping up as common mistakes. Please could we practise these (look – say – cover – write – check) and then use them in sentences.
