Welcome from Miss McInally
Year 3 School and Home Learning Activities
Weekly Homework Tasks
In Year 3, maths and spellings homework will be set every Friday and due in the following Wednesday. All children are given orange books to complete these tasks. Please ensure these books are in school every day so that all reading progress can be recorded.
Every Friday, one or more tasks will be set on MyMaths http://www.mymaths.co.uk for your child to complete by the following Wednesday. Although it is ideal that this homework is completed at home, children have the opportunity to do this task during Friday lunchtime. The work will relate to the work they have been doing in class that week. It will either support their learning or provide an extension to what they have learnt already.
Additional maths homework may be set from time to time to support personalised learning.
Spellings & Times Tables
Spelling homework will be sent home each week as well. These are words that are taken from the Year 3 and 4 National Curriculum spelling words. There will be one spelling rule to learn each week which will be covered in our daily spelling sessions which last 15 minutes. Children are asked to use the look, say, cover, write, check approach and then put the word in a sentence to enhance understanding.
For these activities your child will be provided with a general homework book.
Children should read daily for 10 minutes every evening if possible. Please record a comment in your child’s reading journal so we can keep track of their reading.
In addition, children will read in their guided reading groups once a week with a teacher and once a week with a teaching assistant during their guided reading lessons. They will then have the rest of the sessions in the week to complete comprehension tasks, follow up tasks and SPaG tasks.
A Take Home Task will be set each term which links to the topic for that term.
Autumn Term: #welovebrighton Rottingdean/Brighton
Spring Term: Creatures and Crops Plants and Animals
Summer Term: Tomb Raiders Ancient Egyptians
Further Guidance on Homework
Homework should never cause unnecessary stress or anxiety for the child or parent. Please let the class teacher know if you feel this is the case. We recommend that children in Yr 3 and 4 do not spend longer than 30 – 40 minutes in any one homework session.
Please encourage your child to take pride in the good presentation of their homework.
Many thanks for your cooperation and support,
