YEAR 3 HOMEWORK

Reading

We expect children to be reading at home every day. It can be reading with an adult, or reading independently as they become more confident.

In Year 3, we ask that you help your child with their comprehension - what is actually happening in the story? Can they recall facts they have just read? We find that for some children, they become stuck on just decoding the phonics, but with little thought into what they are actually reading. We therefore encourage them to read texts that they are interested in. It is sometimes better to read a text your child finds easier to decode, so that they can focus more upon comprehension. Phonetic books are also available for Year 3s who need support.

Record your reading on a Reading Record sheet, and bring them back to class. Your child will get a token, go up the Reading Tree display, and will get a book prize if they complete 10.

Spelling

Each week, we will set some important words to practice spelling. They may be a group of related words with a similar spelling rule, a group of words with a similar job, or words with unusual phonemes from the Year 3 & 4 National Curriculum Word List.

Your child can play Spelling Games we have learnt in class, such as Pyramid Write, Rainbow Vowels, and Look Cover Write Check.

Maths

In Year 3, we want children to focus upon practicing their fundamental mental maths skills. These include knowing number bonds to 10, 20 and all other number in between by heart. Children should also practice their 2, 5 and 10 x tables, and learn their 3 and 4 x tables.

Use everyday life to help your child use number facts, e.g. counting items of shopping, using coins, measuring things for cooking.

Doubles and halves to 20

(e.g. 6 + 6 = 12,

16 ÷ 2 = 8)

Near doubles to 20
