Homework Information


Homework Grid Choices

Homework is outlined in the half-termly Homework Grid. This has been sent home and can be accessed through Year 3 Google Classroom (which has links to resources to support the homework as well as links to websites for maths and spelling practice). Check Google Classroom for these excellent support materials and use as a means of submitting homework to us. We check Google Classroom regularly.

As this is the first time the Year 3s will have used this, we will be sending login details soon.



Your child has access to Spelling Shed to practise weekly spelling words through games. Spelling lessons start on Friday and learning will be tested each Thursday. We will be sending login details soon.



Reading at home continues to be very important in Year 3.  Reading helps to build fluency and expression, as well as improving understanding of what is being read.  Reading at home can include your child reading to themselves, however it is important that they also read to an adult.  Please record their reading: home or school books in their Reading Record.  Reading records are checked regularly in class.


When hearing your child read, please ask questions about what they have read to develop their reading comprehension.  You will find a list of example questions on the link below.  Please read and follow up comments made by staff in the Reading Record and please add comments about how your child is getting on.
