Year 3 2019 - 2020

Mrs Dunford

Welcome back to Year 3!

Spring Term

Happy New Year! 

I hope you all had a lovely and restful Christmas. Please see our 'Spring Topic Web' to see what we will be learning about this term! 


Homework will be handed out on a Friday and should be handed back by the following Thursday. 

Homework Details

Maths - Children must complete one page of the Schofield & Simms books each week. In year 3 children are also expected to complete a times table test on a Friday. Children will be allocated a set each week to revise.

It is recommended that children play on TT Rockstars weekly to encourage rapid recall of all timetables in preparation for the Year 4 timetables next year.

English - Children will receive one piece of English homework each week. This may vary each week depending on what the focus is. It will usually be a short comprehension piece or a SPaG worksheet.

Spelling - Spelling patterns and keywords will be sent home on a Friday in preparation for an informal test the following week. The words will also be updated to this class page- see the 'Spellings' link. We will be using 'Spelling Shed' as an interactive tool for children to practice their spellings in class, children will also need to go on this at home as part of their spelling homework. 

Reading - For their reading homework, the children are expected to read for 15 – 20 minutes each day. We ask that parents monitor their child’s reading and acknowledge this by signing their orange reading records every week. The class teachers will be checking children’s reading records every Thursday and will send them home with a book at the appropriate reading level for the child. These levels will be reassessed every half term and the class teacher may change your child’s reading book colour when appropriate. Reading a breadth of books/ leaflets/ comics for pleasure is also encouraged! Whenever possible please question them on the book they are reading, this would be beneficial to ensure they are fully comprehending what they are reading.

Your support with all homework and reading is very much appreciated so thank you in advance!


The children should keep their P.E kit in school all week and have pumps for use indoors and trainers for outside. A tracksuit may also be worn outside when it is cold.
