Who knew there’s so much interesting stuff to learn about the rainforest?

In Isaiah class we have been using the computers to research some amazing facts about the rainforest. We used the link above to learn about the different layers and then made mini- presentations about it.

Why not write one new fact you now know below.

# Year 3 Job and Isaiah Homework : due 25th April 2016

English:

Read every day for at least 10 minutes. Please remember your child must have their book signed. Every fortnight children are expected to do a book review of a book they have been reading or have read, children can pick these up from the classroom and stick them into their homework books

Handwriting:

Writing:

Lots of parents get a bit fed up of children saying ‘I’m BORED!’ Imagine one day you came home from school and your mum or dad were there saying ‘I’m BORED’!

1. What would you say to them?
2. Write a short conversation between you and your parent/carer in which the adult is the one who is bored!
3. Set your conversation out like a playscript.

Maths:

You will need a partner to play with, a mug and coins (1p, two 2ps, two 5ps, 10p, 20p, 50p). Put all these coins into a mug.

Recognising the even and odd numbers is crucial – it is surprising how many other numeracy skills depend on this. This activity helps to reinforce this recognition, and also gives practice in adding amounts and coin recognition.

end in 0, 2, 4, 6 or 8. Odd amounts end in 1, 3, 5, 7 or 9.

1. Agree who will be even amounts and who will be odd amounts.
2. Take it in turns to play. 3. Put all the coins in a mug, shake it and tip them out.
3. Collect up all those that have landed ‘heads’. Add these coins to give an amount.
4. If you are collecting ‘evens’ and this amount is even, you may score this amount.
5. If you are collecting ‘odds’ and this amount is odd, you may score this amount.
6. If the amount is even, and you are collecting ‘odds’ or the amount is odd and you are collecting ‘evens’ you get no score!
7. Continue taking turns until you have had six turns each. 9. Add your scores. Largest score wins the game!
8. Play again.

Spellings:

A: wonder, worry, cover, oven, dove, nothing, onion, woman, comfort

B: weekly wisely blindly bravely correctly fairly hardly kindly lively lonely loudly proudly sadly shyly slightly slowly suddenly sweetly accurately

C: anxiously arguably conscientiously definitely entirely immediately in/accurately in/considerately (both spellings of the latter two will be needed within the test)

THIS WEEK’S SPELLING PATTERN IS: The suffix –ly starts with a consonant letter, so it is added straight on to most root words. Exceptions:

Spelling group A’s spellings are to reinforce phonics patterns, any word in red does not follow the phonic rule.

Thank you

# Year 3 Job and Isaiah Homework (due in 18th April)

Read every day for at least 10 minutes. Please remember your child must have their book signed. Every fortnight children are expected to do a book review of a book they have been reading or have read, children can pick these up from the classroom and stick them into their homework books

Handwriting:

Writing:

1. Write out all of the letters in the alphabet carefully on the attached page and cut them up carefully. (Don’t forget to take the alphabet page from school)
2. Put them all in a cloth bag or empty cereal box and shake them around so that they become all mixed up.
3. Pick out two letters from the bag. Think of the longest word you can that has those two letters in it (in the same order as you picked them out of the bag!).
4. Write the word down (spelled correctly).
5. You score a point for each letter in your word. So if you wrote down ‘monkey’, you would score 6 points, one for each letter in ‘monkey’.
6. Now pass the bag to your helper for them to have a go. 7. After ten goes each, add up your scores to see who is the

winner.

1. If you find it too easy, try playing the game with 3 letters from the bag. That is much trickier!

Maths:

Work with a partner. Choose a times table (not 1, 2 or 10).

1. Write out the times table, e.g. 1 x 3 = 3, 2 x 3 = 6, etc. 2. Say the first answer aloud, and write a rhyming word,

e.g. three, bee.

1. Say the second answer and write a rhyming word, six, bricks.
2. Keep going down the table, saying each answer and writing a rhyming word each time.
3. Find someone in your family (not your partner) and show them the list of rhyming words.
4. Can they guess the times table? Bring your lists of rhyming words into school.

Can you guess this?
