Years 2 and 3 Homework

Good morning Kingfishers!

I hope you are all well and really enjoyed our school trip to the theatre yesterday! I really loved it and want to carry that magic on in our writing!

For your homework I would love it if you re told the story of ‘Hansel and Gretel’ in your own words. 

Make sure you write an awesome description of the amazing sweetie covered cottage and of the Wicked Witch as we have been working on writing lovely detailed descriptions this week.

Things to think about for the cottage:

What does it look like? What does it smell like? what does it taste like? Mmmmmmm yummy! I’m getting hungry just thinking about it!

And for the witch:

What does she look like? Describe her hair, her clothes, her ugly warty face, her beedy little eyes. What does she sound like? What does she do?

These descriptions will also help us in our big writes next week when we write a letter begging for help from Hansel or Gretel!

Alternatively you can continue what you started in Maths as we’re still working on these important concepts.

Year 3 –

In maths this term we have been practicing our column methods and we’re getting pretty good.

We’ve been learning about addition and we have learnt to carry 10’s and hundreds. Feel free to make up your own calculations but I have also attached some sheets if you prefer.

2 digit column addition

3 digit column addition 

AND we’ve been learning about subtraction! We have been practicing borrowing when we don’t have enough units, it’s been tough but we have been really strong and carried on even when things get hard!

2 digit column subtraction

It’s also always good to practice and revise our times tables, do you know your 2’s, 5’s, 10’s, 3’s and 4’s?

Year 2 –

This half term in maths we have been working on addition and subtraction too.

We have been working on these targets:

I can add and subtract numbers including:

a 2-digit number and ones


a 2-digit number and tens

If you can practice any of these at home that would be really great!

Looking forwards to seeing you all on Monday!
