Homework is due in on Tuesday 7th November
This week has been Arts Week. The children have had a fantastic time making different pieces of ‘Colour’ themed artwork. Year 3’s colours centred around the themes of Autumn and Happiness.
For homework this week, we would like you to write an evaluation and review of one of your favourite activities from this week. You could include what you had to do, how you felt about your artwork and why it was your favourite.
You could choose from to describe and evaluate including:
– Pen and Ink Drawings
– Kandinsky Circles
– Colour Wheels
– Pom Poms
– Clay paintbrushes and pencils
– Anne Amora Silhouette Trees
– Mood and Emotion Poems and Pictures
– Chiltern Academy Activities.
You will need to spend at least 20 minutes on this piece of work and use fantastic punctuation and handwriting. It can be written on the computer or in your best handwriting on a plain piece of paper with decorations to show what you created. We may be choosing the best pieces to go up in our Arts Exhibition in the final week of this term, so try your very best with your sentences!
Title – Can I use a dictionary?
This week we have become ‘Dictionary Detectives’ and have been practising how to find words and definitions, as well as putting words in alphabetical order. This week your homework will require a dictionary. Please see the sheet in your English homework book for more information. Please make sure that you write the long date and title in your English homework book, and underline both with a ruler. Please also read the instructions carefully.
Remember we also expect you to record at least 4 pieces of reading in your Home School Book. We will collect home school books in every Monday.
If you ever have any trouble completing your homework please come and speak to us.

Title – Can I solve an addition investigation?
This week we had one Maths lesson and we had an investigation to find the word which had the biggest value. I would like you to do the same for homework, but this time you must come up with your OWN words. These can be 2, 3 or 4 letters long using the alphabet given to you. I would like you to come up with 8 different words and then calculate their value by adding them neatly in your book. Please use a ruler when drawing any lines. I have done some examples on the sheet to show you what it should look like.
All of you must make sure you have the short date and title in your homework book, underlined beautifully with a ruler.

Title – Can I solve an outdoor investigation?
Ostriches, Monkeys, Zebras and Lions, Giraffes and Elephants –
For your maths homework this week you will need to head outdoors!
Mother Nature is the greatest of mathematicians, as you’ll soon find out. Record your findings in your book and write a short reflection on your activity.
All of you must make sure you have the short date and title in your homework book, underlined beautifully with a ruler. Remember one number belongs in one square.
Title – Can I write about Arts Week?
This week we have been taking part in Arts Week. For your homework, we would like you to do a write up of your favourite activity – it might be the flip flop summer artwork, the 3D volcanoes, the tie-dying of t-shirts or the red and purple city skylines! We have also done rainbow watercolour landscapes and created a collage of a child eating a watermelon! You must write about what you had to do and why it was your favourite activity. We would like you to write a paragraph or two in your best handwriting on A4 paper or typed on the computer. We would also like a date, a title and a border which has been decorated beautifully. You could also draw a picture to represent what we created. These will be going on display in the Arts Exhibition. Please write your name on the front clearly.
As usual, we expect you to record at least 4 pieces of reading in your Home School Book over the holiday. We will be collecting Home School Books in on Monday. Please make sure you get an adult to sign your book and try to record new words you have learnt, and write comments about your book and what you have read!
Have a lovely weekend,
Miss Bartropp and Ms Pater
Title: Can I research for and against arguments?
Next week in English we are going to be focusing on writing balanced arguments. To prepare you for this, your homework this week is going to be researching the pros and cons of a controversial topic.
We are giving you two options to investigate, you can either look at the pros and cons of graffiti and how it affects different groups of people.
In your homework book, please divide your page in two and come up with a minimum of 5 arguments for and 5 arguments against graffiti. You may even want to include some pictures to support your different arguments. Please remember to present your work beautifully and use a pencil and a ruler to draw your table. Your writing must be in blue handwriting pen, and you need to include a date and a title. You must spend at least 30 minutes on this piece of homework.
Maths – SATs revision books
Arithmetic – page 8 and 9
Number, Ratio and Algebra – pages 2,3,4
Keep practising ready for cracking times tables.
Please ensure you are reading as often as possible (and something that challenges you) and recording it in your Home School Book.
We have not had a spelling test this week, so you have extra time to learn the spellings handed out to you before half term.
