Homework

 

Autumn 2 Week 4

 

Literacy

This week in guided reading we have been learning about inference. Homework is to practise your inference skills (reading between the lines). 

 

Making an inference involves using what you know to make a guess about what you don't know or reading between the lines. Readers who make inferences use the clues in the text along with their own experiences to help them figure out what is not directly said, making the text personal and memorable.

 

Watch the following link to remind yourselves on how to infer.

Half Term Project

 

Yay, we have completed our first half term! Well done year 3.

 

Over the half term we thought it would be fun to recreate Stonehenge using any material you want such as play dough, Lego, pebbles and stones. Either bring it in or send a photo of your fantastic creation.

 

To go with your brilliant replica (copy or model) we would like a fact sheet which includes at least 5 key facts about it. Remember to use our class page for links to help support your research or visit a library to borrow a non-fiction book.

 

We can’t wait to see what you come up with, good luck!

Have a lovely half term!

 

Happy wishes from the Year 3 team.
