Please make sure you encourage your child to complete it on their own and inform us if they found the activity challenging so we can further support them in school. They can sign up for homework on Thursdays and Fridays which is first come, first served. Weekly website links will be sent on Fridays.

Star of the Week

3A -  Azriel Joseph for using great persuasive language to persuade others to drink more milk.  

3B – Aleen Al Meatiq for writing a fantastic persuasive letter to Mr. Scrymgeour.

3C – Albert Chang for ‘putting in a huge effort to dramatically improve his handwriting.



We will continue to persuade people to drink more milk using persuasive language.  We will look at different adverts and identify their features in order to help us create our own persuasive advert for people to drink their milkshake. We will create presentations on our topic to perform for the parents at our Exit Point. After the Exit Point we will write a newspaper report on how it went, including quotes from the parents, using speech marks.

In Guided Reading we will learn to understand what we have read, in books we can read independently by predicting what might happen from details stated and implied.  



Over the next few weeks our new unit will be ‘Exploring Fractions’. We will learn to recognise a unit and non-unit fraction of a set of objects as well as learning how to write a fraction of a set of objects. During our mental oral starters we will be revising other areas covered this year such as, counting in 4s, 8s, 50s and 100s.



Next week is our final week of our topic. Although we are sad it is coming to an end, we are very excited to show you what we have been learning about. We will prepare for our Exit Point by making resources for our café.

This week’s homework is related to our Exit Point so we would appreciate your support and complete the task and also support further by coming to your child’s class on Thursday 16th March, 11:00 – 12:00 so the children can share their learning with you.



We will continue to make videos for our Exit Point but we will also introduce our new topic of ‘We are opinion pollsters’. We will create our own opinion poll, seek responses and then analyse the results.
