‘Where Children Come First’


Below are a few details about Year 3 Home Learning. 


If you need any further help with what your child should be doing at home or how you can help, then please feel free to pop in and see us.



Spellings are handed out on a Monday and the children should be rewriting the lists (using Look, Cover, Spell, Check) on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. On Friday we test the children in a variety of ways, as well as continuing to practice the sounds/rules in our literacy learning during the week.



The children have a home reading book set by the class teacher and a library book they choose independently. We encourage the children to read as often as possible (for 10-15 minutes) to any willing listener! Please record when your child reads in their Home School Reading Record – we also use this as a communication book between school and home.

Please feel free to read and record any other books/magazines/comics/picture books etc your child enjoys.



We set the same home learning across the year group.

Home Learning will always be set on a Thursday evening and be due in on the following Tuesday. If for any reason your child is unable to complete their Home Learning then please let your class teacher know. We would like to make Home Learning an ‘enjoyable’ experience for all, so please spend no longer than 30 minutes on any task (even if this means it isn’t finished.) If your child wishes to work for a longer time then great! Could all Home Learning please be completed using a HB pencil (not pen or biro.) Whenever possible, we would like an adult to sign the Home Learning book and we would welcome any comments regarding how your child found the task.



Thank you for your support.
