In Year 3, it is very important that your reading and homework is completed on time.
- Spellings will be given out on a Friday and tested the following Friday.
- English and Maths homework is given out on a Friday and needs to be completed by the following Friday.
Reading books are changed twice a week. Simple place the book that needs changing in the tray alongside your reading record and it will be changed asap. If you require 2 reading books please write this in your child's reading record.
Homework teaches our pupils to work independently and take responsibility of their own learning. We encourage all parents to have an active role in their child's education through homework which in turn will give you an insight into your child's learning and progress.
Children will be given English and Maths homework every week This will always be something we have already covered in class from a previous week and so your child should be able to complete this independently. If for any reason your child is unable to complete their homework or does not understand it, please let me know by Monday. I will always take the time to go through any misconceptions they may have with their work.
We expect the children in Year 3 to read a minimum of 4 times a week. Reading is so important as it builds self-esteem, vocabulary and feeds the imagination! This only needs to be a handful of paragraphs with some questions asked about their understanding of the text. Reading must be recorded your child's reading record and handed in at school.
Please make sure your child brings their PE kit into school on a Monday. Some of our P.E. lessons will take place outside so please provide your child with an outdoor kit as well as their indoor one.

KEY LEARNING IN YEAR 3
Please find below a times table poster. Children must know all their times tables by the end of Year 4 and will take a statutory test at the end of this year group. Therefore we must prepare them as soon as possible. Please print this if you wish to.
