Weekly and termly home learning (homework)

Home learning

Reading and Spellings

Children are expected to read at home 4 times per week. Please read with your child and sign their reading records. Reading records will be checked every Thursday and library books can be changed every Thursday.


Each child now also has access to an online library called 'MyOn'. Usernames and passwords are the same as TTRS. Reading on MyOn should still be recorded in reading records. This will be checked on the system by class teachers to ensure it is accurate. 



Differentiated spelling will be sent home on a Wednesday and testing is on a Wednesday. 


Please practice your times tables daily by using TT Rockstars or by writing them down. We recommend playing 5 minutes a day to maximise the retention of the multiplication facts. Our focus in year 3 is the 3,4 and 8 times tables.

A topic based home learning activity will be handed out at the end of each term. Children who complete their home learning will earn a reward during a lesson towards the end of term. If home learning isn't completed, the activity will have to be done in lesson time.
