P3 Homework Week Beginning 4th September

Primary 3 Homework – Week Beginning 4th September

Thank you for a great start to our home learning for this year.

Please feel free to write comments into homework jotters about how your children have been finding the homework.

Best wishes,

Mr Buchan

 

Numeracy

Play +1 / -1 with someone at home. (To play, write +1 and -1 on opposite sides of a piece of paper so that one of these is showing face up. The first player says a number, and then the second player has to say back the number that is either +1 or -1, depending on which side of the paper is showing. After every five or six numbers, flip the paper over.)

If you want more of a challenge, play +2 / -2 or even +10 / -10!

How many can you get right in a row?

Can you play the game faster and faster?

Challenge the adults in your house!

 

Play an addition game on a computer or tablet (e.g. http://www.arcademics.com/games/alien/alien.html). Start with sums up to 12, and then see if you can go up to 20.

 

Reading

Everyone has a new reading book this week, with a note of pages to be read in time for reading groups in class on Thursday 7th and Tuesday 12th September.

Reading pages out loud is very helpful. Can you pick a page to practise, and then read it out with no mistakes and lots of expression?

 

Spelling

Please could everyone practise these words:

back                 neck

pick                  sock

stuck                were

many               these

for                   about

A great method is to look, say, cover, write and then check each word. This is how we will practise in class. Please try to practise each word twice in this way.

Try to make up a sentence that uses three of the words from this week’s list. Or more if you like!

P3 Homework for week beginning 28th August

Primary 3 Homework – Week Beginning 28th August

Homework this term will be set and collected on Tuesdays.

As the new year begins it will help us all to get some practice going over the basics.

With homework activities that are not written down (e.g. the maths games) please could you write a note in your homework jotter to tell me what you did.

Thanks very much!

Mr Buchan

 

 

Numeracy

Play “Number Bonds Tennis”. This is where one person says a number between 0 – 10 and their partner has to respond with the number that would add up for 10. For example, 5 -> 5 or 0 -> 10 etc. See how fast you can go without making mistakes!

Practise counting forwards out loud in 2s, 5s and 10s.

 

Reading

Everybody has new reading books. Please read the pages indicated on your bookmarks.

If possible, please could you read some of the pages out loud to an adult.

Spelling – Please practise these common words:

the                   that

of                     are

and                  for

you                  was

A great method is to look, say, cover, write and then check each word. This is how we will practise in class. Please try to practise each word twice in this way.

Try to make up a sentence that uses three of the words from this week’s list.

P3 W/B 26/06/17

I cannot believe it is the last week of term already!I have had a fantastic year with my super-duper P3s. I would like to thank you all for your support over the year and I am extremely sad to be leaving my lovely class and a wonderful school. I hope everyone has a great summer break.

Homework

There will be no homework issued.

 

Books

Please can you make sure that all school and Loanhead library books are returned to class. I need to return the Loanhead Library books before the holidays.

 

Plastic bags

I would be grateful if you could please send your child in with a sturdy plastic bag on Thursday for taking work home.

*Remember school finishes at 12 noon on Friday*

 

Thank you

Homework

Sorry for the homework delay! The homework grid and spelling words have been slotted into homework jotters. It would be great if these could be stuck in at home.

Events

  • We will be sharing our learning with the rest of the school in this week’s assembly. I will approach parents individually if children need to wear anything specific.

Any questions please do not hesitate to ask.

P3 Homework and Health week Info

This week will be jam packed with all things healthy! Children are encouraged to come to school in sports clothes as there will be sporting activities on every day. We will also be doing lots of work in class to promote our mental, emotional, social and physical wellbeing including healthy lifestyles, relationships and food.

REMINDER-Sports Day is on Monday afternoon. Starts at 1pm (weather permitting).

Health Week HomeworkImage result for health week

Below are 3 healthy tasks to complete.

Task 1

Five a day challenge! Aim to eat five portions of fruit and vegetables every day. Complete the chart by writing in what you have eaten. Use this to practise spelling the names of common fruit and veg correctly.

Task 2 

Keep a diary of the exercise you have completed over the week. This can be activities at school, after school clubs, playing with friends, walking the dog……anything that gets you moving.

Task 3

Plan a healthy meal worksheet.

Home Learning WB 28/05/17 P3

This week, there will be one week’s worth of homework and then next week we will have special health week homework. Sorry again for last week’s mix up.

Reading– on reading book.

Spelling-Spelling words are in jotters. Please look, cover, write and check twice. There is also a spelling graffiti worksheet to complete.

Maths- Continue with learnits. Please practise times tables. If your child is already secure with 2/5/10 then move on. Knowing these will really help with the work we are doing in class. Practise any way you like. I have posted a link to some games if you wish to use them.

https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/7-11-years/multiplication-and-division

Some have a subtraction worksheet in jotters. If you have this please do not worry about the times tables work…..unless you want to 🙂

Homework due-Friday 2nd June

Home Learning WB 22/05/17

Homework

I must apologise for the homework mix up. I am very confused with dates this week! I have given out one week’s worth of homework because I thought health week was next week. Of course, it isn’t until the 5th. I will provide some more homework next week before our special health week homework.

Summer Fair

Letters should be in bags today about summer fair arrangements. Please look out for them.

I will hopefully see many of you at parents evening.
