Homework due in on Tuesday 1st May

 

Year 3

Maths

Both Sets

This week we have been looking at scales and measuring the weight of objects using g and kg and capacity using ml and l. For your homework this week, we would like you to spend some time using scales at home. This could be helping an adult to make a cake by measuring out ingredients, or it could be practising how to read scales by weighing different toys or objects around the house. It’s up to you! We would like you to write a short paragraph, signed by an adult, to explain what you did. You can do this in your Maths Homework Book.

 

Times Tables

Make sure you are also learning your times tables every day to try to improve your scores or even achieve a level!

 

English

Title – Can I use there, they’re and their accurately?

This week your homework is based around the homophones – they’re, their and there. You need to be able to use them correctly in a sentence.

Cherries and Grapes – Fill in the gaps of the sentences with the correct use of their, there and they’re. The first three have been done for you. You may work on the sheet and glue the sheet beautifully into your book.

Oranges, Pears, Strawberries and Watermelons – We would like you to write 3 sentences using their correctly, 3 sentences using they’re correctly and 3 sentences using there correctly. Please underline your use of the homophone in a coloured pencil.

 

We will be checking for a date and title and beautiful presentation.

 

Reading

As usual, we expect you to record at least 4 pieces of reading in your Home School Book. Please make sure you get an adult to sign your book. Remember you could be reader of the week!

 

Have a lovely weekend,

Miss Weston, Mrs Jones and Mrs Pilgrim

Maths

Miss Bartropp’s Maths Set

Title: Can I write coordinates?

Stars and Hexagons – You must write the coordinates of each dot on the coordinate grid. Remember that you must go along the corridor, and up the stairs! You need to ensure that you separate your coordinates with a comma and surround them in brackets. Use the example to help you. Work on the sheet and glue it into your book.

Triangles, Squares, Pentagons and Diamonds – You must write the coordinates of each dog on the coordinate grid which has 4 quadrants, so some of your coordinates will be negative numbers! Remember to go along the corridor and up the stairs so go along the horizontal line and then check the vertical line. You need to ensure that you separate your coordinates with a comma and surround them in brackets. Use the example to help you. Work on the sheet and glue it into your book.

All of you must make sure you have the short date and title in your homework book, underlined beautifully with a ruler.
