Homework is given out every Friday and should be returned at the latest on the following Wednesday.

Spellings are given out on a Friday and the test will be the following Friday. We encourage children to practise spellings at home either in their spelling book or on Spelling Shed.

We recommend that the children should be reading at home a minimum of 5 times a week and and we encourage parents/carers to record this in their reading records.

We ask that children have their P.E kits in school at all times. Our P.E. lessons are usually on a Wednesday and the day that the other lesson is on will vary each week.

We encourage our children to stay hydrated throughout the day and welcome water bottles to be brought in. Please could you ensure that the bottle is labelled to avoid it getting misplaced?

All children will have usernames and passwords for Times Tables Rockstars, Spelling Shed and Purple Mash. If possible, children are encouraged to access these regularly to assist with their learning at home.

Here is a link to our yearly overview.

Homework in Year 3

Homework is vital for children to know more and remember more. ⭐

In Year 3, homework is given to every child on a Friday and we expect it to be returned the following Wednesday at the latest. We will alternate homework between Numeracy and Literacy.  As well as this, we ask that children read 5 times a week to someone at home alongside their reading in school.

All children also have a username and password for TimesTable Rockstars and Spelling Shed. These are fantastic resources for children to use at home to support their learning.

Thank you for your continued support with this.

Spelling Shed

The children have all now been given their login details for Spelling Shed, this is a great online resource for practising spellings which can be found here: Spelling Shed.

If you have any issues logging on then please let us know.

We have also looked at lots of different ways to practise spellings in school, below are just a few ideas:

  • Write each word out three times (you could use different colours)
  • Cut out letters from newspapers or magazines and use them to make your spelling words.
  • Make a pyramid using the letters in your words eg. w

.                                                                                         w o

.                                                                                         w o r

.                                                                                         w o r d

  • Write your spellings in alphabetical order, you could then write them in order using the second/third letter.
  • Time challenge – how many times can you write your spellings in a given time? You can try and beat your score throughout the week.
  • Put your spellings into sentences, see if your can make a story with them.
  • You can write each letter of your spellings using a different colour or even use bubble writing.
  • Include each spelling in a picture that makes you think of the word.
