Please remember to read regularly with your child and also encourage them to practice their times tables. By the end of Year 3, your child should know their 2, 3, 4, 5 and 10 times tables. They may choose to practice by using Times Table Rockstars, although they should use any method that suits them.
Please contact a member of the Year 3 team if you have any questions or need further support with any Home Learning that is sent home.
Below are some additional activities that you may choose to do at home relating to our Predator! topic.

- Learn how to spell the names of some of the weird and wonderful predators of the world – the weirder the better!
- Research and record a predator from each of the subgroups: mammals, birds, insects, arachnids, reptiles, fish and plants.
- Make a mini fact file or short digital presentation about your favourite predators and bring it to school to share with the class.
- Make a predator glossary to explain all the specialist vocabulary from this topic.
- If you could be a predator for the day, what kind of predator would you be, and why? Where would you live? What features would help you hunt, catch and kill your prey? Record your ideas on paper.
- Use the web to research what different predators eat. Create food chains for a variety of different predators using materials and tools of your choice.
- Devise a ‘What am I?’ quiz about predators and try it out on your friends and family. How many questions does it take for them to get to the right answer?
