Week 2

Good afternoon and welcome to week 3


Go Fish Musical Meeting - Is on this afternoon (7th May) beginning at 3.15pm in the Hall. Please let Mrs Horrocks know if you are able to help with costumes, props or catering but are unable to make the meeting this afternoon.

Mothers Day Breakfast - is being held in the Hall on Friday morning 11th May...please make sure that you have sent your RSVP to Fran Marrell at the Front Office. It begins at 7.30am and is a wonderful opportunity to celebrate all the amazing mums in our community!

Reading Books - Please support your child to change their reads once a week, on either Monday or Tuesday is best. The books sent home are suitable for your child's reading level and are meant to be read more than once...this helps to build vocabulary, sight word recognition and familiarity with the text.


In maths we have been looking at the Split Strategy. This is used to multiply large numbers.

For example:
7 x 45 = 7 x 40 + 7 x 5 
          =   280   +  35 = 315

We have extended this to the grid method, both of which are proving to be quite tricky for some of the students.  These methods have really highlighted the need to work on times tables!


Please see below the homework that has been assigned for the week.

Reading - All reading is to be written into their reading log, including the name of the book and number of pages and then signed by you.

Please note - Reading books are to be changed on a Monday only. At the moment I am getting dribs and drabs which is not easy to facilitate so I will stand firm on this.

Spelling - Students are to complete a LCWC of their list words for the week. 

Sight Words - If you can please work with your child to complete these every night. It is great to ask your child the definition of the word or to use that word in a sentence as well if you have time?

I will move ahead on retesting students this week for those that have had theirs for some time.

Mental Maths - Students are to complete Days 1-4 of Unit 13. This is marked daily in class each morning. It is fine if students work ahead on this.

Please see the link below for assistance if needed.

Times Tables - Activity Sheet - 2 x Times Tables. Students are asked to write out their tables in order on Monday and Tuesday nights and then complete them out of order on Wednesday and Thursday nights.

The Australian Curriculum requires that students in Year 3 are fluent in their 2, 3, 5 & 10 times tables by the end of the year.

We feel that working ahead on all times tables is incredibly important so please make sure that your child is reviewing their 2's this week. 

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me.

Have a great week,

Mr McSevich
