The children have worked their socks off this week completing their end of year assessments. They are brilliant and should feel very proud of themselves.

Once our assessments were done we began to plan and design our bags. The children's ideas and prototypes show flair and individuality. We certainly have some budding designers in our midst! 

Have a lovely weekend,

Maths daily 10 - link below. Here is the site that we use for our daily challenge. This is a good site to practise times tables, addition, subtraction and division. Ideally the children could use it for 10 minutes a day to practise their skills.

Maths 'homework!'

Please practise your times tables daily. Get slick and quick! In year 3 we need to know our 2,5,10,3,4 and 8 x table and division facts.

Please encourage your child to read daily and write two reading comments in their diary over the week like they usually do. There are some 60 second comprehension tasks for your child to complete under 'files to download.' We have been practising the skill of reading and retrieving answers to questions from the text. Some of the children have found this quite challenging. We have looked for the key word/words in the question, the children then skim and scan the text and put their finger on the key word/words, next they read before and after the key word/words to find the answer. Some children find it useful to highlight or underline the answers too. They can complete the tasks in their homework books. There are some more reading comprehensions under 'files to download' which are differentiated according to the stars - 1 star being the easiest and 3 stars being the most challenging.
