Home Learning

Reading

Year 3 children should continue to read at home regularly. We recommend at least fifteen minutes five times a week. This is essential to developing reading skills and all learning. Please complete the Reading Record booklet which will be seen by the class teacher each week.

Please click here for questions and ideas to make the most out of reading at home and together.

Spelling

Spelling lists will be sent out each half term. For ideas on how to practise words, please click here.

Times Tables

Children should spend time each week practising their times tables. Children have individual logins to Times Tables Rockstars and can build progress by playing regularly.

Topic Homework

Each week children are set a specific piece of homework based on class work that week. This is generally English, maths or topic related.

Homework is set each Friday and is due the following Wednesday. Homework is sent home via School Ping. Please remind children to homework books in the box by Wednesday.

Every should come to school with a (name labelled) water bottle that will be kept in the classroom.
