Year Three Homework Page
 


Thursday 1st April 2021.


*Important*
Before completing your half term homework, please visit Google Classroom and complete your End of Year 3 Report Questionnaire. This is to help your teacher write your End of Year 3 Report during the Easter holidays. 
Thank you!





    


Over the holidays, you have the important role of looking after your new plant. Remember to water it often (not too much) and place it in a well lit room or near a window.
As you watch your seed grow into a beautiful flower, we would like you to select one of the following statements and complete research:

Option 1: Identify and describe the functions of different parts of flowering plants: roots, stem/trunk, leaves and flowers;

Option 2: Explain the way in which water is transported within plants;

Option 3:  Explore the part that flowers play in the life cycle, including pollination, seed formation and seed dispersal.

 

When you have completed your research, please present your findings in the form of a poster. Please have your homework with you in school on Monday 19th April.

 

If you can, it would be lovely to see a photograph of your flower if it grows. You can either email them to orion@castleview.slough.sch.uk or andromeda@castleview.slough.sch.uk or you can bring your photograph into school.

 

Have a lovely break, stay safe and we look forward to welcoming you back to school on Monday 19th April. Don’t eat too may Easter eggs!



Spellings
Over the Easter break, please select up to 15 words from the Year 3 & 4 Spelling List (found in your Home school Diaries) and practise spelling and writing them in a range of sentences. Challenge yourself to improve your sentences through using techniques you use in class (fronted adverbials, adverbs, improved adjectives). You may also wish to wish to write a short story that includes each of your chosen words. 

Our regular spelling tests will resume on Tuesday 27th April.


Times Tables
Please ensure you are spending time on TTRS and Education City practising your times tables. If you are confident in answering times tables questions, you may wish to challenge yourself to play timed games or begin to learn the inverse (division facts).
You will be tested weekly, each Tuesday (Orion) and Thursday (Andromeda).
