Welcome to Year 3
with Miss Bedborough, Miss Davies, Mr Pirbhai and Mrs Firth
Homework Information for Parents
In Year 3, the children will be given 4 pieces of homework each week: Guided Reading, Spellings, Literacy and Maths. We would expect children to spend about 20 minutes on each piece of homework across a week. The homework will be set on a Friday and due in the following Friday so that children have a week to complete the tasks. All tasks can be found on our class blogs.
For Guided Reading we expect the children to do a minimum of 10 minutes reading each night. This could be either the book allocated on Bug Club or their free choice colour levelled book.
If you would like to carry out extra activities here are some options you may wish to choose:
- discussing key characters and settings
- making a list of unfamiliar words and their meanings
- discussing the book with your child and the events that occur
Spellings are given every Friday which must be learnt and practised using sentences DAILY as we carry out a Spellcheck the following Friday.
Maths homework will be updated on Mathletics on a Friday and the children have a week to complete the set activities as well as play some of the games on 'Live Mathletics'. Please let us know if your child has problems accessing the internet so that we can ensure they have alternative homework! Times tables will be set weekly and checked on Fridays.
Literacy homework will take place via class blogs. A post will be put on the blog site on a Friday. Literacy homework can be submitted on paper or posted via the blog.
Please ensure that your child is completing homework. If they do not complete their work by the Friday, they will be given one more opportunity to submit their homework by Monday. After this, if it has still not been submitted, they will receive a lunchtime detention.
We appreciate all the hard work you do with your child at home.
