Homework is set weekly through Google Classroom. It is uploaded to be sent out at the end of the day on Friday and we ask for it back in the following Wednesday. This can either be handed in through Google Classroom or completed in your Child's Homework Book.
The homework consists of weekly Spellings, reading and times table practice. Sometimes there may be additional homework set linked to other areas of the curriculum.
In class we read independently everyday. It is important that your child has their yellow reading journal and reading book everyday. We ask you to continue to listen to your child read aloud and we ask that this is at least 5 times a week. It only needs to be a few pages but makes a huge difference to their progress. Please sign the yellow book as evidence that they have read and the page number they have read up to. In Year 3, we are learning to become more independent readers so we are also learning to record where we have read up to independently.
We use Accelerated Reader. This really supports your child's understanding. When they have finished reading a book, they can quiz to check their understanding. Your child is given a reading code and it is important they read books within their code.
The expectation by the end of Year 2, is that you child can recall multiplication and division facts quickly for the 2, 5 and 10 times table.
By the end of Year 3, the expectation is that your child can recall multiplication and division facts for the 3, 4 and 8 times tables.
At the end of Year 4, your child sits a times table text based on all the times tables so that is is really important that they continue to practice them and become confident with them. Within Year 3, much of our Maths coverage is linked to being secure on the 2, 5, 10, 3, 4 and 8 times table so it is important they have regular practice so that we can apply these in other areas such as fractions.
Your child has a TTRS Login. TTRS is great for quick recall and improving your multiplication and division skills and is great fun too!

Your child will also have an IXL account. There are lots of skills that you can practise on there. Please find the link below.
