Year 3 homework will be given on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday. The tasks set for homework will reinforce whatever the children have been learning in school that week.
The tasks that we set for homework will never take more than 10-15 minutes to complete as we do not wish to overwork the children after a busy day in school. They can be done with as much or as little parental support as you feel is necessary.
Monday homework should be brought back to school by Wednesday; Wednesday homework by Friday and Friday homework on Monday - we will then go through the answers together in class.
Please also ensure that you listen to your child read as often as possible as well as questioning them about what they have read. The parents reading leaflet that was given out at the meet and greet has some good example questions that you can ask your child when they are reading to you (there is a link to that at the bottom of the page). There is a huge emphasis in the new curriculum on comprehension skills so it is vitally important that the children can not only decode words and read fluently, but also understand what they have read and delve deeper into characters' thoughts and feelings.
Purple Mash and Times Table Rockstars have fun and interactive games for the children to practise their times tables.
