Autumn Term

Homework - September 2020

Dear Year 3 pupils and adults,

 

Here you will find homework for each week.

Please check the class page on a weekend for that week's homework. It will usually consist of a a reading task, maths task and spellings to practise. 

Remember, that if you would like some additional activities to do, or you have already completed an activity, you can find lots more on Busy Things or BBC Bitesize Daily 

Also, don't forget that you do not need to print out activity sheets unless you would like to. 

You may write out your answers in the exercise books provided by the school. I will also post any answers if needed, so you can mark with your child.

 

Many thanks,

Mr. English

Some Half Term activities you could have a go at:

 

Make natural art

Look for natural art materials. Collect fallen leaves, petals and sticks and use them to make a picture or sculpture. Please make sure you don't pick wildflowers, however, as they are important for wildlife and some are protected by law.

You could even use the objects as 'stampers' or paintbrushes - dipping them in paint and rolling, brushing or stamping them on paper to create interesting patterns and effects.

 

Write a story inspired by woods and trees

Get those creative juices flowing with a story challenge.

Choose one of the ideas below to write a short story about:

  • A tree has fallen in the woods
  • A character has gone missing
  • An animal is shouting an alarm call
  • There are some mysterious footprints to follow.

You could have a go at writing a story each as a family and share them together before bedtime.

 

Which one was the funniest?
