Homework is a very important part of Year 3 life. To ensure the children make the most progress they can, we set homework on a weekly basis. The work set will always reflect the work covered in school and so the children will be able to independently complete this, but parental support is always helpful.
Homework will be set every week by the Class Teacher, there will be three pieces of homework set per week. Each child is given their spellings, expected to read at least 4 times a week and they are expected to complete their Maths homework on MyMaths (www.mymaths.co.uk). All children have now been given their unique login for the website, enabling them to log on and complete. (This is to be found inside the children's readind diaries). The children are responsible for completing their homework on time.
Homework given out: Friday
Homework due in: Following Friday
Any problems with the homework, please feel free to pop in and discuss it with the Class Teacher.
Below is also a copy of the Year 3 spellings list for the year. By the end of the academic year, the children need to be confident with spelling and using these words in their writing. Children are expected to learn 6-8 spellings per week and are tested on them every Friday. Scores will be communicated to you through the children's reading journal. We expect a weekly score of at least 7 or above.
Children should be heard read every night where possible. After enjoying a book with your child, it is also beneficial to discuss it. In addition to word recognition this will also help improve the children's comprehension. Please find below a copy of the questions you can ask your child about their book.
When they have read their book at home, the children will complete a 'quiz' in school to check their understanding of it.
These are the methods we use at St Mary's in Mathematics lessons.
