Primary 3 Homework – Week from 6th March
We are going to learn about animals that live at the north and south poles. As part of this we will think about predators and prey. Please could you let me know if you think your child might find this distressing. In particular, I am keen to gauge whether we might watch a video of animals hunting. There would be no gory bits, but a sense of threat. If you could catch me at the door or send in a note I would really appreciate your guidance.
I hope everyone had fun in the snow. It’s a shame our Vogrie Park trip could not go ahead. Mrs Duncan is trying to reschedule this and I will get back to you when I have more information.
More words that people have been finding tricky. Please could we practise them using our usual look, say, cover, write and check method and then write sentences using them?
Pages from class books to be read at home will be written down in the grids as usual.
In class we are moving on to look at fractions. We will begin by going over halves and quarters. We will be thinking about the fact that you can have a fraction of a shape (e.g. quarter of a pizza) or a fraction of a number (e.g. 24 grapes and I ate half). We will then extend this to think about thirds, fifths, tenths etc.
At home this week, how many fractions can you find? It could be to do with food at mealtimes or objects that are divided up. Write examples in your homework jotters. You could also draw a picture or take a photo.
“When I eat fish fingers I always cut them into thirds.”
“My kitchen window is split up into quarters.”
Please keep practising the Learnits.
I have also set up a new (smaller) Sum Dog challenge this week for those who have been finding that fun and useful.
