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.
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.
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?
Please could everyone practise these words:
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!
