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 -  Linjou Chandrachoti for excellent effort finding fractions of numbers.

3B - Alexandra Holt for excellent work about the moon landing in our English lessons 

3C – Zora Fan for ‘Outstanding efforts with her writing’



Next week we will start the week by writing a newspaper report about the first moon landing. We will then move onto reading the text of ‘Sunshine makes the Seasons’. We will read an information text about the sun and make notes before creating our own information fact page using headings. We will look at Seasonal Poetry towards the end of week. We will perform and give our opinions on a range of poems as well as planning to create our own Cinquains.



Next week we will continue to focus on ‘Exploring Fractions’. We will recognise and find equivalent fractions. We will compare and order unit fractions, revising the > and < symbols. We will learn to add and subtract fractions and solve word problems involving fractions. During our starters we will be reviewing columnar addition and subtraction, counting in multiples of 4, 8, 50 and 100 and telling the time using a roman numeral clock.



As Scientists next week we will be looking at sources of light. We will create our own shadow puppets to use when planning an investigation. We will create shadows of different lengths and directions using a compass to help us. We will record shadows outside throughout one day to see what happens and changes.



We will continue our new topic of ‘We are opinion pollsters’. We will create our own opinion poll, seek responses and then analyse the results.
