The main purpose of LCP’s Mathematics Homework is to make your life, as a teacher or parent of Year 3 pupils, as easy as possible. All of the homework activities are based on the renewed Primary Framework for mathematics; however, as they assess specific learning objectives they can be used in conjunction with other planned teaching schemes.
Each homework activity sheet addresses a whole, or part of, a learning objective. The questions are written to test the understanding of your pupils once they have worked on a topic in the lesson.
With a full set of answers included you can be confident that your students are getting regular, relevant homework that tests their understanding across the Year 4 objectives and all seven core strands.

Hello Woodpecker Class!
This is your last week before the summer holidays! A very different end of term this year! I have uploaded a weeks worth of transition activities for you to work through to help prepare for your return to school in September.
If you would like to carry on with Maths and English then head over to BBC Bitesize. They have some great lessons you can choose from.
You should all know your new classes by now. I hope you are all okay with them. A lot of thought and consideration went into the decision and I know you are all going to fit in so well and have an amazing year with your fantastic new teachers. Mrs Burns and Miss Charalambous are super fun, super caring, super kind and very talented at what they do.
Thanks again ever so much for the video, it really was one of the nicest gifts I've ever received. It meant SO much to me.
Have a good week Woodpeckers and I will check in again with you all later on in the week.

I hope you are all well. You've been at home for a very long time now and I understand some of you may be finding it hard to keep yourselves motivated but I am so impressed with the work I am seeing so keep on trying your best. It's normal to have good days and rubbish days but remember this won't be forever! You're all amazing!
Here is this weeks work. For English, you will be looking at poetry seeing as we haven't done this yet. There is a fabulous set of lessons on BBC Bitesize for you to work through. Try both of the punctuation worksheets as the two star one is quite simple. Follow the links on the timetable for the Maths videos.
I found a really cool Covid time capsule activity pack for you to complete. It has lots of good activities you can complete such as writing a letter to yourself, talking about what you have been up to at home etc. You can then put it away to look at when you're a little older.
Have a wonderful week!

Here is this week's work. As you know I am teaching Year 6 at the moment so may not be as quick to reply on Google Classroom but I promise I am still reading your wonderful pieces of work and enjoying seeing your photos so keep them coming!
This week, I have used some lessons from BBC Bitesize for your SPAG. They are superb! All you need to do is read through them, watch the videos and then complete the activities at the end of the page (you don't have to complete all of the activities). I have asked you all to write a story again for English this week as this is something we need to practice. For Maths, I have downloaded the alternative worksheets as you have already completed the others. I have attached a PDF document with all of the video links you will need.
Unfortunately our First News trial has now expired. Well done to everyone who used it and I do hope you enjoyed it. Remember, you still have TT Rockstars and Mathletics that you can use. Please please do whenever you have a chance!
You should have all received your reports now. I hope you have enjoyed reading them. I am so very proud of all of you and everything you have achieved. Well done! Please email admin with any replies.
Have a lovely week and happy learning!

Again, keep on sending photos so I can put them on the blog, the newsletter or even twitter. If you bake a cake or do some craft etc then let me see! I'm going to think of another challenge that we can do this week as the toilet roll challenge was such a success. If you can think of any then I would love to know! Take care Miss Hickey

Kingfisher Plea for Construction

Happy World Smile Day 2017
A smile cost nothing, but gives much.
It enriches those who receive, without making poorer those who give. It takes but a moment, but the memory of it sometimes lasts forever.
None is so rich or mighty that he can get along without it, and none is so poor but that he can be made rich by it.
A smile creates happiness in the home, fosters good will in business, and is the countersign of friendship. It brings rest to the weary, cheer to the discouraged, sunshine to the sad, and is nature’s best antidote for trouble.
Yet it cannot be bought, begged, borrowed, or stolen, for it is something that is of no value to anyone until it is given away.
Some people are too tired to give you a smile. Give them one of yours, as none needs a smile so much as he who has no more to give .
To celebrate World Smile Day we each designed our own smile and then wrote a message to a class mate to make them smile!
We had a mixture of compliments, well wishes and jokes!

Hello and Welcome to
I hope that you all had a fantastic summer and enjoyed the sun (what we had of it). The time has whizzed by! I know Mrs Sullivan and myself are looking forward to hearing all about your time off and the exciting things that you have been up to.

We will find out about attraction and repulsion by magnetic forces and which materials are magnetic. Look at compasses and uses of magnets. Also we will carry out some enquiries using magnets.
Jigsaw – Puzzle 1 (Being Me in My World), gives the class a process for everyone to be involved in the production or review of the class positive behaviour policy. Rights, responsibilities, rewards and consequences are built on the belief that each child has the right and the capacity to make his/her own
History – In History we will be learning about our local area of Bushey and will be considering how the local area has changed over the years using a variety of sources as well as going on local walks.

PE: In games we will develop our skills in athletics We will use Yoga to allow us consider our core strength breathing and balance. We will be learning the game of Tag Rugby. We will also be taking part in Fitter Futures challenges to help improve our fitness.
Music – In Music we will develop skills relating to composing, performing and listening. We will be exploring sounds and rhythmic pattern. We will be learning a variety of songs and using these to enhance our musical skills.
D&T – In DT we will be considering what a healthy diet is, looking at The Eat Well plate and what a balanced, healthy diet means. We will learn some ways to prepare ingredients safely and hygienically whilst using equipment and utensils to prepare and combine ingredients to make a product.

Mr Barton Maths Blog
The blog of craig barton @mrbartonmaths, tes top 10 resources: homework ideas.
The following collection of resources have been assembled by the TES Maths Panel . They can be downloaded for free by registering on the TES website.
Homework is a constant talking point within the teaching profession; do we set too much? Not enough? Do we even need it? This collection of TES Connect resources has been compiled to give you some new and exciting ideas into your lessons.
Top 10 resources:
1. Maths homework – explain a method to an adult
Age range: 11 – 16 Format: Word document
This task allows the students to verbalise their understanding of a topic. By teaching what they have learnt to someone else, students get the opportunity to deepen their understanding.
2. Help for parents
This resource offers practical ways in which parents can get involved in their child’s mathematics. Although the resource is designed to be used with younger students, it offers a variety of adaptable ideas. It also provides parents with ways of explaining basic arithmetic.
3. Functional maths tasks
Age range: 11-16 Format: Website
The functional nature of each task in this collection allows students to relate directly to the problem and gives opportunity to access a range of techniques and topics. These tasks can be completed during class or are ideal for an end of term homework project.
4. Geometry and measures worksheets
Age range: 11 – 14 Format: Word document
A collection of topic specific worksheets with ideas that can be easily modified or adapted. The homework sheets even include a quick mental maths warm at the start to get students thinking.
5. What am I? Naming 3D Shapes
Age range: 11 – 14 Format: Word document
The idea of this task is to give students cards with a shape on them and they have to create a description using key words. An easy to produce, versatile homework.
6. Probability – make your own questions
Students are given the skeleton of a question and have to fill in gaps to make the question feasible. They then have to try and create their own question, with set conditions. There is also the opportunity for students to give reasons for their choice which helps improve their understanding.
7. Maths relay races
Age range: 11 – 14 Format: PDF
This resource encourages students to discuss maths strategies to solve problems. It opens up a range of opportunities for both students and teachers to discuss mathematics as a class.
8. Maths homework booklets
This first resource provides a comprehensive collection of homework booklets, arranged into year groups and abilities. Each weekly homework sheets has 20 questions based on different topics and the APP sheets provided at the back are extremely useful for students to self-assess.
9. Transition worksheets – GCSE to AS Level
Age range: 16-18 Format: Word document
The collection provides questions and solutions, as well as thorough explanations, and helps to form a solid foundation on which to build on when students begin an A-level course following the summer break. This prepares students for the AS course and gives you a jump start in September.
10. A2 mathematics homework
This final resource aims to bridge a summer gap when all too often, knowledge seems to disappear from our students’ brains. Each topic is split up into quick-fire review sections along with answers. This will gives students a clear indication of what they need to work on before they start the A2 course.
