Homework will be set every Friday and must be completed by the
Each Friday, the homework for the week will be posted on Microsoft Teams and the teachers will check on a Wednesday that all the children have posted their responses. Each week, a Year 3 child is expected to complete:
- READING Read at least 5 times a week and record a response in their reading record (this could be written by a child or by the adult reading with them); Reading records should be signed by an adult at least three times out of the five reads each week to enable children to receive reading "Readopoly" rewards
- SPELLING Each child will receive 6 spellings a week that they will be tested on each Wednesday. Teachers will also check that the children are using these spellings in their class work and not just learning them for a test! The children should practise the spellings as many ways as they like and more than once for them to be able to recall them quickly.
- ARITHMETIC Each half term, Year 3 will be set key number facts to learn. They will have been taught them in school to be practised at home. You can do this as often as you like! Car journeys are good for practising these mental recall skills!
- TIMES TABLES The children can log in to Times Tables Rock Stars to practise the multiplication tables set for them by their teacher. We may use other games and ideas to help them through the term.
Year 3 are learnign their Year 3 statutory spellings once they are confidently using their Year 1 and 2 spellings in their classwork.
Each child will receive 6 spellings each week to practise using the Kinetic letters handwriting they are learning in a spelling homework book. These spellings will be tested each Wednesday, and the class teachers will check the children are spelling the words correctly in their class work, too.
Once the children have built up 50 correct spellings over the term, they will receive their Bronze Spelling Award, 100 spellings earns them a Silver Award, and 150 spellings will earn them their Gold! If the children consistently get 5 or 6 correct a week through the year, they may even receive their 200 correct spellings Platinum Award!
Please continually practise your child’s times tables with them over the year. The government expectation is that children should know all times tables up to 12 x 12 by the end of Year 4. With this in mind, it is important children consolidate their learning regularly at home in order to meet age related expectations.
In Year 3, we learn the multiplication and associated division facts for the 5, 10, 2, 4, 8 and 3 times tables.
