Year 3 Home learning

   Homework due: Monday 9 April

Blog Address:

You will notice there is a change in time as to when home learning is due in. We have talked at length about this and feel that as many children are involved in after school activities it may suit more to have time over the weekend to complete it.

  1. Easter Project Due in on 9th too! We are excited to see all your hard work.

  1. Read your reading book and remember to fill in the log at the
front of your homework folder.

  1. Spelling Words:This week our words are to do with Easter.
donkey, Jesus, chocolate, rabbit
  1. Spelling Work:   How many words can you make from the word        Easter? How many words can you make from the word chocolate?
eg hot.  You may move the letters around.

  1. Please remember to return your library books to the returns box in the Omoho before Wednesday so we can issue new ones. See your teacher if you do not have a library folder.

If you have an apron your child could wear at school could they please bring it to school on Wednesday as we will be baking.
If you happen to have a small cookie cutter you could lend to us for Wednesday’s baking could you also send it along.

Many thanks
Lorraine and May

Bible Verse: Easter
As they entered the tomb, they saw a young man dressed in a white robe sitting on
the right side, and they were alarmed.
“Don’t be alarmed,” he said. “You are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. He has
risen! He is not here. See the place where they laid him.
But go, tell his disciples and Peter, ‘He is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you
will see him, just as he told you.’ ”

  1. Who might that white robed figure be?
  2. Where was Jesus laid to rest?
  3. What does Easter celebrate/remember?

You are expected to read 20 minutes every night. Make sure you are
bringing your library books to and from school so you can enjoy them.
If you want suggestions for books to read, ask your teachers.


Here are the symbols that represent the sports in the Gold Coast 2018 Common
wealth Games.  Fill in the name of the sport for each symbol.
