Year 3 Homework

Please scroll to the bottom of this page to find our current home learning tasks.

In Year 3, children will receive a 'menu' of activities for each week. They will be able to choose which home learning activity they tackle each week. Tasks will be linked to the term's learning in class. Each completed home learning task will be celebrated, including the awarding of Dojos.

In addition to the Home Learning activity, children will be expected to:

  • Read for at least 10 minutes every day

  • Practise their times table

  • Learn their spellings, when this has been established

Homework is set on a Friday and is due in on Thursdays (unless otherwise stated)

We endeavour to create home learning activities that are enjoyable but that also support the children's learning. However, we are not expecting the children (or you) to dedicate the whole weekend to homework! If there are any problems, please come and see us!

Reading - We believe that reading is vitally important. As well as reading within school, we expect children to read for at least 10 minutes per day at home. It would be nice, as they are developing as readers, if they could read with or to an adult. As their reading develops, they may wish to read independently. Please support us by ensuring that any reading is recorded in their reading record journals and that these come into school everyday.

Times Tables - Before very long, your child will be told which times tables they are learning each week. They will be tested on these weekly with a combination of 40 multiplication and division questions. This ensures that children can apply their knowledge of tables to answering inverse questions e.g. If children know that 4 x 10 = 40, they should also know that 40 ÷ 10 = 4. Children can also practise these tables at home using Times Tables Rockstars.

Spellings - In year 3, children will be given spelling words to learn. They will not be tested but we will look for the correct spellings in the children's writing. If you are ready, please get started on the Year 3 and 4 word list below.

Sheets can be completed by adults or children, if the reading record should be left at school, for example.
