Please click here to view the Year 3 Curriculum Overview.
Home learning will be recorded by children in their Homework Diary each week. Children will be set maths homework on 'My Maths' (usernames and logins to follow), spellings to practise and timestables to learn on 'Times Table Rockstars' (logins to follow). This is in addition to reading at home at least three times each week.
There will be a weekly spelling programme during the term. For the first half of the term every child will be revisiting previously taught spelling patterns to consolidate their learning. During the second half of the term, we will complete five spelling sessions a week with the children. Taught spellings will alternate between Read Write Inc spelling units and the Year3/4 words.
Children will record their spellings for the week in their homework diaries.

Please can you ensure that your child has their full PE kit in school for these days as well as long hair tied back. For safety reasons, jewellery is not to be worn during PE lessons, therefore could you please ensure your child is able to remove it independently before the lesson or have it removed before coming into school.
SUPPORTING YOUR CHILD'S LEARNING AT SCHOOL
- Read with your child as much as possible as this helps with their fluency and understanding of texts as well as helping to increase their imagination for their own writing. Please ensure your child fills out their reading record for each book they read. We expect your child to read between 1 and 2 books from then school reading scheme per week.
- Practise times tables. Revise 2, 5 and 10 times table from Year 2. By the end of Year 3, children are expected to know their times tables at speed and be able to rapidly recall the 3, 4, 8 and 11 times tables. In school, children practise times tables using Times Tables Rock Stars four times each week.
- Encourage your children to play on the following educational websites:
