Please ensure your P3 is reading daily, whether from your own home library or from websites which provide ebooks. Moneyrea PS has a subscription to Bug Club. Your P3 has a unique profile (login details in green folder collected from school) which gives them access to whichever level of books they currently read in class. Once a level is finished, they can automatically progress to the next level.
I would also recommend oxfordowl.co.uk which is free and provides hundreds of Oxford Reading Tree titles. All you need to do is register to use this excellent resource.
SPELLING ACTIVITIES MAY
Please feel free to use these ideas for learning spellings as you need them. It's absolutely at your discretion which activities you feel your child benefits from when learning spellings. Please do not do them all, rather pick a couple to complete each week.
HIGH FREQUENCY WORDS
If your P3 had laminated HFWs to learn please continue to practise these. Please also continue making words with their Letterland boxes.
For those P3s who would benefit here are the next 100 HFWs (ie 201-300).
COMPREHENSIONS AND RELATED ACTIVITIES
Some of these comprehensions are differentiated. Choose whichever version best suits your P3. To enable your P3 to complete these activities it may be necessary to read the text together.
BIG BOOKS (To be read with your P3)
Big books (paper copies and ebooks) are read in class by teacher and pupils together. This is known as 'shared reading'.
There is another version of 'The Boy Who Cried Wolf' by Tony Ross. The only video I could find of this version online comes with a health warning. It is narrated by a drag queen who appears right at the end. It's absolutely harmless and I would have no qualms about showing it to my own children but I realise that others might have different views! However, the book is so good, the children will love it and it provides a great comparison with the original.
Your P3 could have a go at writing their own version of 'The Boy Who Cried Wolf', maybe taking inspiration from Tony Ross's version. Use one of these frames to plan your story and then have a look at rules for narrative writing to make sure you're on the right track. Finally write or type out your finished story. I'd love to see any versions your P3 comes up with....email me!
Please try to find time each week for a bit of handwriting in their handwriting books. Use previous weeks to practise correct formation.
TOPIC-RELATED LITERACY ACTIVITIES
Diary of a Bean Plant (weeks 3,4,5,6,7,8,9 and 10)
At the beginning of May we usually plant beans. Each child has his/her own plant then to look after. This links with our Science where we learn about the Life Cycle of a plant. It also links with Maths as we measure our bean plant every week. If you can, please print this booklet and complete one page each week until the end of June.
