English and Maths - CGP Books
Class 3 homework will be set on Friday and we will mark it together in class on the following Friday. Please ensure you have completed your homework before we go through it in class.
Make sure you read your home-reader book at least three times a week – if possible every night. Two house-points are awarded to you each time you read. Can you get to the next level on your home-reader challenge?
Please learn your spellings for Thursday’s test. Use a dictionary to check any meanings that you are unsure of. You could use the ‘Spelling Menu’ for fun ideas of ways of learning your spellings each week. You will be provided with a spelling sheet each week.
Times Tables Olympics
In Class 3 we are taking part in a Times Tables Olympics, with medals ranging from ‘Finalist’ to ‘Platinum’. Times tables are so important so please ensure that you practise these each week. We will have our Times Tables Olympics Quiz on a Friday and you will take the sheet home to help you practise. How quickly can you move up the medal table? Good quality websites to help you learn your tables are:
Hit the Button
