Homework in Year 3
Children are provided with a homework book. This should be handed in every Wednesday and will be returned usually on a Friday.
Reading – a minimum of five times per week at home, reading aloud to an adult to develop fluency. The children have a homework diary which needs to be signed.
Spellings - to learn using ‘Look, Say, Cover, Write, Check’, or another activity to support spelling rules. The emphasis in KS2 moves on to how children use and apply their knowledge and understanding of phonics. The children will be expected to practise given spellings, as well as investigating spelling rules.
Maths practice – number facts to be practised daily. There are games that might be given out to support this learning.
Other - The above outlines the main homework the children will receive and covers the time requirements of the school’s homework policy. Homework may also be given to complement or reinforce work carried out in class. Homework may sometimes take the form of a project to be covered over a week or two. This supports the development of key skills and thinking skills.
