Homework is designed to help the children develop and extend skills taught in the classroom. Therefore, every child will be expected to complete homework in Year 3. Homework will be set every Friday and will be due back on Thursday each week. It will include a piece of Maths and English work each week. In Maths, we will practise times tables and in term one we will focus on the 2s, 3s, 4s, 5s and 10s. Please use Times Table Rockstars to help your child practise. We will use this website to set some maths homework. English will include a fortnightly list of spellings or a grammar activity. Occasionally the children may be asked to carry out a task to investigate our topics more instead.
The children will need to read every day to help them increase their phonics knowledge and broaden their vocabulary. Please read with your child for 15 minutes a day. You will be provided with a home/school reading diary to record the children's reading and they will be given opportunities to complete book tasks and win raffle tickets for their efforts.
