Butterfly Class (Year 3)

Friday 11th June


This term we will try and return to a more structured homework routine. This will include Spellings, Times Tables/Maths, Reading and an additional activity. 


Many of the children in the class are signed up to the NESSY program for spelling and reading. If they are then I woul;d like them to continue working on this at home but also if they would like to try the Spelling Frame activities below they would be more than welcome.

Times Tables Rockstars 


This week we have been looking at Chapter 1 from Cool Like Zelda on Fiction Express.  The children can catch up with the story at home using either the Level 1 or Level 1 Lite options. 

 Additional Activity

In Art this week we have started to look at portraits and in History we have stated to look at The Anglo Saxons.  The children have a Mashcam activity to complete that will enable them to create their own Saxon version of themselves.

Half Term Homework Project 

Over the half term we have been studying bread in class.  This week the children managed to make their own bread rolls in class.  We also looked at designing out own bread rolls.  This included a wide range of interesting ideas about fillings.  I will add some of the examples below and some helpful ideas but for homework this half term I would like the children to have ago at making their own bread.  Naturally the rest of the family can then act as the official taste testers and give feedback in the Bake Off style.

Mental Health Awareness Week Challenge

As part of our Mental Health Awareness week the children have been set a challenege to pick a night of the week and have a personal screen free evening.  They could use this extra time for some reading, art activities or even some extra exercise.  At the end of the week we are going to discuss if we felt differently when we woke up and how we felt the next day.
