In Year 3, we will be handing out new home learning once every two weeks, usually on a Friday.
We expect that each Y3 child:
- reads their book banded book to an adult at home for at least twenty minutes per day and completes a blue reading bookmark every 10 reads. Please sign the bookmark each time your child reads. The bookmark will then be entered into a prize draw to give each child the chance of winning a new book in the Friday Gem Assembly. Children should be taking home a book each day to read at home. It should be brought back into school for daily 'Reading for Pleasure' time.
- practises a times table using the times table practise sheet. Please sign the 'maths bookmark' after each practise. This should then be posted into the whole school maths zapper box giving each child the chance to win...a number...and a once-in-a lifetime opportunity of being the official HBJS Maths Crab! Ask your kids, they'll explain to you.
- completes a Mymaths task! Each child will be given a Mymaths password and username that will allow them to practise key maths skills online using the Mymaths website. Click on the robot icon below to take you there!
- practises the 'Spelling pattern of the fortnight', using the Look, Cover, Write, Check method.
N.B. Some children will be taking home a reading book in 'The Talisman' and 'Totem' series with accompanying tasks, if they are part of a focus reading group. Please ensure that these books are brought to school every day.
Children can bring in their weekly home learning back to their teacher to receive a gem for their gem family.
