Home Work

Please complete Power Projects (see below) and regularly check Purple Mash. 

Children should also be reading books and they also have access to Spelling Shed, Maths Whizz and  myON.  

Power Project

Our Power project for this half term is Extreme Survival. During our topic lessons we will be finding out how to use maps, atlases and globes to locate areas of extreme heat and cold. Explain why some areas are very cold and some very hot and describe and understand what life is like in those places for people, animals and vegetation. 

Click here to see our power project homework for this half term. Homework projects are due back by Wednesday 19th May.

Please email work and we’ll share with the rest of the class, in a celebration assembly.

Spellings

Spellings will be sent home at the beginning of every half term.

We will carry out a spelling test on a Thursday each week. Please make sure you are practising spellings at home as well as at school during our morning activities!

Home Reading

Children have books linked to their reading age on MYon, they have been shown how to access these and have been given usernames.  Please contact us if you need assistance.

We think technology is great... but we will also be sending children home with a 'real' book of their choice from our Big Cat reading selection. Children should be able to decode these books, but they are challenging so we suggest reading to your child or reading a page each to support children and asking questions that check whether your child understands what they have read or listened to.

Reading is a key skill that we want all children to develop. Please read with your children regularly and record this in their planner. It is important that fluent readers have the chance to read and talk about books with an adult.

Times Tables

Please continue to practice times tables. Children have a test on a Monday afternoon '99 club'. Children were given a help sheet at the start of the year and are encouraged to play games like Hit the Button which is both fun and competitive.

In Year 4 children will have to complete a new national government test on times tables, which will be timed.

PE

PE is on a Monday afternoon and Friday morning.

Could you please ensure that your child has their PE kit in school. A white t-shirt, black shorts and black pumps are the correct kit. Appropriate footwear is needed and children may bring longer bottoms and a jacket now the weather is turning colder.

AVFC

We’re very lucky in year 3 to have Danielle Beckett from Premier League Primary Stars working with us on a Friday.

Danielle has been working with us in PE teaching us lots of new skills and also working on a few fun projects in class too.

Snacks

We encourage children to bring in a healthy snack for break time as KS2, are not provided with fruit. Most children bring in fruit and some are bringing in toast, wrapped in foil, for a little energy boost mid-morning.

Visits

Unfortunately we were unable to visit Coventry Transport Museum due to the current situation, but we still had fun conducting a traffic survey in our local area.
