As part of Pirate Week last week, Year 3 looked at the work of the artist, William Turner and worked together to paint and create a collage of a ship in a stormy sea.

 

Look at our acrostic poem Year 3 wrote together for Pirate Week. We tried really hard to think of rhyming words. 

 

TIPS FOR LEARNING TIMES TABLES AND SPELLINGS

 

At SJL, we set homework that encourages children to practise the fundamental skills of Maths and Literacy. If you are finding learning your times tables or spellings tricky, why not try:

  • saying times table number sentences out loud in full (e.g. one three is three; two threes are six; etc.)
  • writing inverse number facts (e.g. 48 ÷ 8 = 6)
  • writing spellings out in felt tip, sand or even shaving foam!
  • using a spelling pyramid like the one below for extraordinary
