This week in Year 3, Mr McHugh showed us how to use Hwb and Word online to make posters about the importance of recycling. For their homework, Pupils must access their HWB accounts using their Username and Password given out to them on Friday. Homework is due by next Friday 15th June.

Previous Homework

Year 3 have started a new topic, Sustainable World.

 

On Friday, pupils took park in a simulation programme where their decisions in different scenarios would have different consequences for the planet. When they completed it in school, the pupils were told to make the wrong decisions to see what the planet would look like if we didn't look after it. The class scored 0 because we made all the wrong decisions!!

 

Your homework this weekend is to complete the simulation again, this time trying to get the highest score possible and make the right decision for the best outcome for the planet. Click this click to complete the homework.

Reading books and reading records

Every child should have a reading book and green reading record from school. The reading record should be written in at least TWICE per reading book. This is to be completed by the child with help from the parent or adult if needed. There are prompt questions to help in the front of the reading record. Parents or other adults must also sign the reading records (even if that adult hasn't listened to the child read) to ensure you are aware and involved with you child's reading.

 

Every Friday, children have the opportunity to change their reading books. Children can only do this if, 1. they have finished their books, 2. if their reading records have two reading sessions filled in AND 3. if their reading record has been signed by an adult (even if that adult hasn't listened to the child read).

Maths and English

To help prepare the children for their tests, they have been given practice paper questions as homework. Please encourage your children to try their best and bring in their homework as soon as possible so that areas they are stuck on can be revised. Homework must be in by Wednesday 2nd May.

This week in Miss Doran's Maths we have been revising TIME!

 

Time is a tricky concept. Please practice telling time on both digital and analogue clocks at home with your mums, dads, nans, dogs, cats.. Anyone!

 

Remember:

1. Which hand tells me how many minutes past the hour or to the next hour?

2. Which hand tells me which hour it is past or which hour is coming up next?

3. What do the numbers on the clocks mean if the minute hand is pointing towards them? (1 = 5 minutes past, 7 = 25 minutes to).

4. What do the number on the clock mean if the hour hand is on them?

(1 = 1 o'clock, 1:00 am, 1:00 pm, 13:00).

 

*Top tips - think about the times you do different things*

What time do you have breakfast?

How long after that do you have lunch?

How long are your favourite TV programs or films?

What time do you go on and come off the computer?

What time does it start getting dark? Is this the same every day?
