Year 3 – we have been looking at adding and subtracting a 1 digit number to/ from a 3 digit number. Remember, if you know 3+4=7 then you also know that 353+4=357.

Year 4 – we have been adding two 3 digit numbers. Be careful when you’re adding, and the total is more than 10, that you carry over the 10s or 100s to the correct place.

This week’s homework is Creative and is due on Thursday 22 October.

As we are reaching the end of the half term, we wanted to use this opportunity to see how much you’ve learned during our Science unit:

I can share what I’ve learned during ‘Living things and their habitats’.

Here a couple of ideas that might help you to get started:

• a poster with animals in one particular habitat or animals in different habitats
• a collage of photographs that you take in some habitats near you
• tell a story about some animals in their habitat on a comic strip
• search for a template online or create your own
• a series of food chains with arrows to show the transfer of energy

This week’s homework is Talk Time and is due on Thursday 08 October

This half term, our Christian value is friendship. Sometimes we find ourselves in difficult situations, which leave us in a moral dilemma. Talk to somebody about the examples below.

What you would do in the same situation? Why are these moral dilemmas?

• You see your friend cheating in a maths test.
• Your friends are in a club with you at school. A new child joins the class but they won’t let them join the club.
• Someone is saying unkind things about your friend behind their back.
• Your parents have asked you to come straight home after school. Your friends want you to go to the park with them. They say that you should go to the park.

Talk to somebody and make notes so you are ready to feedback in our homework review on Thursday 08 October.

There’s an old saying that goes, “In order to have good friends, you have to be a good friend.” What does that mean? Do you think it’s true? Why? What are the benefits of having friends who are different from us?
