The homework this week is a whole school creative homework. Because of the open afternoon next week, the homework is due in on Wednesday not Thursday.
I can show what I have learned in STEM week.
This week, all our learning has been STEM (Science, Engineering, Technology and Maths) focussed.
For this homework, we’d like children to reflect on their learning across the week and show off what they have learned. Your child could:
- give an overview of the STEM subjects
- do their own mini STEM project
- be a scientist and conduct a science investigation
- continue some of their favourite STEM week learning at home

It’s half-term, so there’s no homework. Enjoy the holiday instead: hunt down a collection of chestnuts on a walk at Roundhay Park, enjoy a cinema trip on a damp day, go further afield and visit somewhere new…
Whatever you do, have a good break.

This week’s homework is creative and is due Thursday 29 September:
I can design a chocolate bar wrapper.
As we begin our Big Topic based on a class novel (in our case, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory), this chocolate-themed homework seems appropriate! There’s only one rule: don’t use more than one page of A4.

This week’s homework is Practice Makes Perfect and is due Thursday 22 September:
I understand place value.
We have been learning about place value for the past two weeks.
Here is the place value section for the Age Related Expectations for Year 3. You can find the full document here: https://moortown.leeds.sch.uk/learn-more/expectations-core-subjects/
- count from 0 in multiples of 4, 8, 50 and 100
- find 10 or 100 more or less than a given number
- recognise the place value of each digit in a three-digit number (hundreds, tens, ones)
- compare and order numbers up to 1000
- identify, represent and estimate numbers using different representations
- read and write numbers up to 1000 in numerals
- read and write numbers up to 1000 in words
- solve number problems and practical problems involving these ideas
The above points show what your child has learnt over the past two weeks in maths lessons. Note that we haven’t covered counting in multiples of 4 and 8 yet.
This homework allows your child to continue practising the basics of what we covered in order to keep up their skills!
