# P3 Homework From 20th March

Primary 3 Homework – Week from 20th March

This week in class we are going to be doing some literacy assessments. These are intended to identify gaps in understanding so that we know what to focus on next term.

Best wishes,

Mr Buchan

Numeracy

We are looking back at lots of areas of numeracy work, ahead of maths assessments next week. Anything you want to choose from the following list will therefore be helpful reinforcement.

1. Fractions puzzle

Jane ate half a pizza. Kate ate two quarters of a pizza. Who ate more? (Hint: It may be helpful to draw a picture.)

Sally ate three pieces of pizza that were all the same size. In the end she had eaten the same amount as Jane. What fraction of a pizza must each of Sally’s slices have been?

1. Time puzzle

Mike went to bed at eight o’clock. Draw what his bedroom clock would have looked like.

Mike has a little brother called Alf. Alf goes to bed two hours before Mike does. Draw the time that would have been showing on the clock at Alf’s bedtime.

I have also put up a new SumDog challenge.

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

Instead of simply carrying on up to a certain page for the first part of this week’s reading homework, some of the children are being asked to choose just one page, and practice reading this with expression. Please look out for a comment on reading grids to see if this applies.

Spelling

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?
