Welcome to Year 3!

Homework Expectations:


Homework is set on a Friday and handed in on Wednesday.

Homework includes: Spellings, Times Tables and Reading.

Weekly homework tasks are compulsory. Please speak with your child's class teacher if homework could not be completed so we are aware and can support accordingly.



Every Friday the spellings to learn will be added to this class page (these can be printed for Spelling book if limited access to this page). These spellings are to support building your child's vocabulary. Below are a variety of different ideas of how this homework can be completed. Please record their practice in their Spelling Homework book and hand this into school on Wednesday.


Times Tables:

Every Friday a new Times Table Rock Stars (TTRS) game will be set. Please use the TTRS log in you are provided at the beginning of the year to access this. The game will be checked by the teachers on Wednesday.

(If your child is unable to access TTRS for weekly homework please speak with the class teacher for support/to make different arrangements.)



Your child will be given a school reading book (if they are still reading scheme/book band books or if they are a free reader and wish to take a book from our class library). Your child can change reading book as often as needed. We will check that your child has been reading at home each week. Please record (or have your child record) any reading that has taken place outside of school in their Reading Record.


If homework is not completed at home (and the class teacher has not been made aware by parent/guardian), children will complete a short homework task during the school day to support their learning.

Spelling Homework Ideas:

This Week's Homework:



This week, we focused on the spelling pattern 'el' at the end of words.

We learnt that 'el' is the spelling pattern we use at the end of words when the letters before are not ascenders (tall letters) or descenders (long, tail letters).











Times Tables:

Log into Times Tables Rock Stars and complete the weekly 'garage' session as many times as you can. The more times you practice the more coins you earn!

We now have access to ebooks via Rising Stars.

The website can be accessed via this link...


You'll then be prompted to enter your child's log in details (if you need this information again, please ask your child's class teacher).

Once you log in, it will ask you to select either EYFS/KS1 or KS2.

Which option you select depends on which book band level your child is reading at.


EYFS/KS1 book bands are:

pink, red, yellow, blue, green, orange, turquoise, purple, gold, white

KS2 book bands are:

lime and free reader

(on the Rising Stars website we will allocate book bands higher than lime for our free readers while we won't give them a book banded reading book from school, they can select their own)


Once you select the option dependent on your child's book band level then it will show you the books that have been allocated to your child to read.

These books can be read aloud to them and there are quizzes for them to answer once they have finished reading.


We hope this information helps!

Team Year 3 :)
