We are continuing with homophones for another week. Most of the errors made in the spelling tests this week were down to mixing up the different homophones. Please make sure you are learning the meanings along with the spellings 🙂

Please practise your times tables using ttrockstars – in Year 3 we focus on 3s, 4s and 8s.

Performance Poetry

In English, we have been looking at performance poetry so that we can create our own in the coming weeks! We started off by creating actions to the poem ‘Gran, can you rap?’ Can you remember them?

In today’s lesson, we looked at two poems and compared them based on how much we liked them and the poetic features they included. These were ‘Once’ by Michael Rosen and ‘Talking Turkeys’ by Benjamin Zephaniah. Most of Jet class preferred Zephaniah’s poem because of its fun content and funky rhythm. We rewrote the first 4 lines of the poem based on the pets we have or would like to have at home.

Can you remember the different rhyme schemes we have been looking at this week? Comment below with the ones you remember!

Homework

Spelling tests are every Thursday afternoon. The spellings we are learning for 13.06.19 are all homophones and are listed below.

allowed

aloud

sight

site

meddle

medal

peace

piece

missed

mist

We would also like children to practise their times tables at home so that they are secure in their 3s, 4s and 8s by the end of Year 3. Each child has a username and password to login to https://www.ttrockstars.com at home. If you do not have these details, please ask your class teacher.

Children should also be reading at home every day and writing a comment in their reading diaries. These comments are evidence of reading, however the main reason we ask for this is to develop comprehension skills and ensure the children have a good understanding of what they have read. Please remind your children to use the bookmarks stapled in their diaries for their comments.

Jet class wrote a great scene for the book Gorilla. In English, we read the story Gorilla, wrote a play script for the different scenes in the book and then we acted out or scenes to other classes. They also acted out their scenes for us.
