3rd Grade - 01/03/16

I HOPE YOU ALL HAD AN ENJOYABLE CHRISTMAS BREAK. WELCOME BACK!!

THIS WEEK

MATH: We will be finishing off area and perimeter. We will be including word problems where the children have to determine if they are being asked area/perimeter. There will be a 10 problem quiz as usual on Friday.


READING: As we will be starting mclass when we return, this week we will be doing some mclass style questions in preparation. Children will be required to search for evidence in texts to support all of their answers and be able to explain their ideas.


SCIENCE: We are moving back on to Science when we return. Your child will be taught about Forces with Mrs. Bossard.



** Homework - Please sign your child's agenda on a daily basis to show that your child has completed that night's homework. I expect homework to be turned in on time. Every Monday we write all the homework in our agenda so we know when it is due in. Also, please try and let your child do the homework by themselves, but then check it over with them. We go through homework every day so the children are aware of how they should answer the questions.

MCLASS

Mclass reading assessments will be taking place over the next couple of weeks. Please talk with your child about trying their best and showing what they can do. This is a mid-year assessment so we can plan forward and make sure your child receives the support they need. If you have any questions, please email me.
