Choose a book from home and write as many ‘Wow’ words as you can find. Try to find at least 10. Pick one of these words and write a sentence with it in.
Remember a ‘wow’ word is good vocabulary. It is basically a word that is used to make your writing more interesting.
All children have been given a zip bag today with the Primary 3 ‘Learn it’ facts we have covered in Primary 3. The idea is that children should learn these and be able to answer them quickly. Therefore if you give them a set time, e.g. 2 minutes and then see how many they can get right in that time. Your child will keep these for the rest of the term and hopefully will gain quick recall of their ‘learn it’ facts. Every Friday the children complete a ‘Beat That’ activity with a different set of learn it facts that they have to answer in a set time and are trying to improve their own score each week.
2 x Table Worksheet. Every child was given a worksheet.
All groups have spelling words to learn.
Read chapter one of your new group reading book and be ready to discuss it in your literature circles next week. Also think of five open/fat questions (that can’t be answered with one word) about the chapter.

In a few weeks we are going to be performing in our Assembly about the Vikings. The children are keen to dress up as vikings for this and will be coming home with some costume ideas. Over this week we will be looking at images of vikings and thinking about the kinds of things we could wear. I will send a list home of suggested items we may need but if you have any ideas in the meantime please feel free to decide for yourselves.
Some of the children are also keen to make axes and helmets- we will have time to do this in class but if anyone wishes to take this project on at home feel free. The deadline is Friday 22nd April!

Article from Newsround
Secondary schools in England could have longer school days due to new government plans.
George Osborne, the Chancellor of the Exchequer, is responsible for setting out how the government plans to spend its money each year in his budget.
In a speech yesterday he announced that he wants to allow head teachers of English secondary schools to scrap traditional “home time” and instead decide themselves what time the school day will end.
This means that school days could be longer.
The Chancellor says his plans will mean “every child gets the best start in life”. But some teachers say it’s more complicated, and that they’re already offering after school activities.
You are going to form an argument for and against having longer school days in Scotland.
- 1 paragraph on why it would be beneficial to have a longer school day.
- 1 paragraph against having a longer school day.
- Then as a conclusion write your own opinion on the subject.
- Please write this as a personal piece in first person.
