Homework 23rd September

Another week has sped by and once again I am thrilled at the quality of your work. A big well done to all of you. I was especially pleased to be able to give out a handwriting pen in Golden Assembly, hopefully it won’t be long before I can give more away.

Homework this week:

In English we have finished Fantastic Mr Fox. Please complete a book review and give evidence from the text to support your opinions.If you are in Mrs. Parmar’s English Group, choose your favourite book to write about.

Maths sheets are revision of skills we have worked on this week involving Place Value. Please see the links on the maths page that can take you to some fun games too.

Spellings this week all have suffixes. Look at the pattern of doubling the last letter of the root word before adding the suffix.

Welcome Back

Hi everyone,

You have all settled back into school life really well after our long summer break.   I am so proud of the way you have all knuckled down and got on with all your work, especially the Year 3 children, as moving to KS2 can feel like a big change.

I have sent out your Mathletics passwords and usernames in your homework books this week. If you find yourself with a spare 5 minutes, why not have a look at the games and maths practise on offer. Remember, always share what you are doing online with an adult and tell them if you see or hear anything unusual.

Homework due back on Wednesday 21st September

For homework this week, please decorate the first page of your homework book.  The page should include information about you, hobbies, family, and pets etc. Try to surprise me! If you want to stick in pictures you are welcome to do so.

You also have a profile sheet to complete with your parents’ help.  These are a valuable resource to ensure we work well as a team.

Spellings are slightly different this year. All children will be given 15 words. Everyone must learn the first 5 words. All children should learn the first 10 words and if you want a challenge, you could learn all 15 words.  Children will be awarded 1 housepoint for getting all of the spellings they attempt correct and an extra housepoint if they try to learn all 15. Spellings are taken from the Y3/4 spelling list.

 

 

MUST

 

·         Said

·         Some

·         Like

·         Children

·         People

 

 

SHOULD

 

 

·         Could

·         Want

·         Who

Finally, please read to an adult at least 3 times each week and record this in your reading diary.
