Welcome to Class 3TH.
Thank you for getting on with your homeworks this week!
Spellings for Tuesday, Mathletics for Thursday. Literacy for today! Phew!
I gave out passwords for ttrockstars this week. It is for you to enjoy while learning your times tables. It is not homework but would be a great way to practice your times tables which are part of homework.
Learning this week has been great- designing houses with Victorian feature and starting to think about patterns. We know all about Flemish brick bonds now. First writing and editing lesson in Literacy. Remember we can ALL improve work to make it better. Our understanding of number and place value is becoming secure.
The thing we need to work on is to follow instructions and show respect to each other when we are not sat at our tables. This will make sure we are all getting on with each other and our work.
Maths- estimating where numbers go on a unmarked number line using our place by comparing them.
Literacy- Adverbs and using dictionaries.
Topic- Why are there lots of Victorian Houses in West Bridgford. Using Ipads too!
Science- Investigating permeability and durability (All will be explained!)
LITERACY HOMEWORK IN YEAR 3 AUTUMN RESOURCES
MATHLETICS LOGIN DETAILS IN CHILDREN'S PLANNER-p8
WOW! A busy week. A BIG thank you to the 4 mums that came to help on Wednesday for our walk. Not even a torrential downpour could stop the children from being excited to look at in detail houses they pass every day. It has got the children's interested and engaged with the topic which was the objective.
Apologies- I have forgotten to send home the paper copy of the homework with children. There is a copy in year 3 resources to the right of this page.Maths homework has been set electronically also. Login details have been stuck into planners. It needs to be completed by next Wednesday so I can check results on Thursday please.
Maths- comparing and ordering numbers. How do we know which number is bigger? What strategies can we use? We will use the symbols < > to compare. We will be looking at problems, working out numbers from the clues in the digits.
For example; Use the clues to find the missing digits:
The hundreds digit is double the tens digit. The tens digit is 5 less than 2 x 4 The ones digit is 2 less than the hundreds digit.
Literacy; We will be writing about Jim and what he thinks and feels about the situation he is in as a class supporting each other. At the end of the week we will be writing independently about Jim's sisters and what they think and feel.
Science; Making rocks? What? How? Just wait and see!
Topic; A closer look at the features of a Victorian house , like bay windows and Flemish bond brickwork!
Have a great- hopefully dry- weekend
