We have some really interesting topics and learning to share with you! We will be updating this page with all of the exciting things we will be doing so check back to find out what we have been up to.

 

Homework

Every week the homework will be updated on this page so please check back. Homework will be assigned on a Friday and is due back to school on Tuesday. Homework will consist of spellings and timestables practice. Please use look, cover, write and check when completing the spellings and practice your timetables as much as possible. These spellings and timestables will then be done in a class spelling and timestables test every week.

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
