P3 Homework week beginning 2.11.20

Primary 3 

Please can all children bring a jumper or wear layers as it is a requirement that we keep windows open in the school, as advised, for ventilation. Some children have been saying they are cold as they don’t have jumpers. We do have a small selection of spare jumpers if people do forget but some children don’t like wearing other people’s things.

Can you please make sure your child has a coat, water bottle and snack every day.

The children have been split into groups for spelling. Their spelling words are stapled into the blue homework jotter. These words need to be learnt and the children should look out for other words of the same spelling pattern when they are reading.

Please use the grid to help learn the spellings or use LOOK, COVER, WRITE, CHECK.

Red Group: ‘ng’ sound at the end of words.

Spelling the /ng/ sound Lots of words end with the /ng/ sound after a vowel – ang, ong, ing, ung words. It is always written ng on the end of a word.

Yellow Group: th, ch

If the final ‘ch’ sound comes after a consonant, the ending is -ch. For example: search, church, branch, finch.

When the final ‘ch’ sound follows a one-letter vowel, it’s usually written tch. For example: fetch, catch, pitch, watch, dispatch. As so often with English, there are a few exceptions to the rule, including the words: such, which, rich

Green Group: Word lists in the homework jotter.


Please complete an activity from the grid in the back of the homework jotter.

PE on Wednesday as usual – please wear comfy clothes and bring warm / waterproof jackets as PE is not allowed to be done indoors.

Many thanks
