Extension & Enrichment Activities
Homework will be issued fortnightly. It will be given out in a paper format to your child to bring home but is also available on the school website. The date it should be completed by is clearly marked on the homework.
Please continue to hear your child read at home, even if they are now reading independently. We would be very grateful if you could record and comment when you read together in their 'Extras Book', so that we can keep track of this at school. In year 3 we are particularly focusing on the use of intonation and expression, as well as taking note of punctuation.
You may find these reading prompts useful when sharing a book with your child.
> Who are the main characters?
> Can you tell me why ....?
> Describe what happened at/when...
> Predict what you think will happen next.
> What does the (word/phrase) mean?
This week we will be focusing on our 2 times table.
Times Tables Rock Stars is an online educational tool designed to help improve your child’s pace and mental recall of times table facts to support their learning of maths in the classroom. Each week, as a year group, we will concentrate on a different times table within school, and then your child, if they choose to, can consolidate their learning through the Times Table Rock Stars website. Your child has been issued with a unique login and we have shown the children, in school, how to access the site and complete the activities. They should also record any times tables practice in their blue Times Tables books that they have brought home today.
You may find the following links useful to help your child to practice their times tables skills:
This term we will be focusing on the plants and electricity!
We will learn to identify parts of a plant and their functions and look at the process involved in the life cycle of a flower. We will also be constructing a simple series electrical circuit, identifying parts including the cell, wires, bulbs, switches and buzzers and recognising some common conductors and insulators.
