Homework Activities for Term 4
We hope you enjoy them!
All children in Year 3 are expected to know the 2x, 3x, 4x, 5x, 8x and 10x tables! They need to remember them by heart and recall the matching division facts.
If I know 4 x 4 = 16. Then I know 16 ÷ 4 = 4.
If I know 8 x 4 = 32. Then I know 32 ÷ 4 =8.
What do you notice?
Please make sure you are reading at home every day!
Make sure to ask your child questions, predict what might happen next, talk about the characters, discuss the meaning of words and you might even be able to link the story to some of your child's own experiences.
Books should be re-read for pleasure and practise.
