Children are expected to read every day and may change their book as long as they have a signature and comment from you.
Weekly spellings will be stuck in the back of the reading record.
Times tables will be tested on Mondays, (randomly, not in order). Your child will note in their Homework Diary which times table they are learning for the following week.
|Spellings, definitions and sentences||Monday||Monday (following)|
|Reading Record comments, including answer to question||Monday||Monday (following)|
|Times tables||Monday||Monday (following)|
|Topic based homework||Friday||Wednesday (following)|
All homework will be recorded in the homework diary, which should be signed by an adult each week. If you have any questions, please feel free to write in the Homework Diary.
Children will stick their weekly spelling list in the back of their reading records. From that list, one will be circled. The children should use a dictionary to find and write out the definition of this word and then write a sentence using the word in the back of their Reading Records.
Each Monday we will set the children a question to go along with their reading. This should be answered by the following Monday.
Children should have one additional entry in their reading record each week and should have read with an adult, who has signed their reading record.

Adults should write at least one entry per week. This might include details of how the child has read / how many pages / any difficulties / progress. The child needs to answer the reading record question as their contribution (three entries in total per week).
Children should make at least one entry about the books they are reading, noting; something about the plot/something they found interesting about character or setting/a prediction etc. They should also answer the reading record question and we would like you to read with your child at least once a week.
Adult entries should be signed. The reading records will be checked on Mondays.
Year 3 will have PE on a Monday, however children must have their kits in school every day so that they can participate in the various activities that occur during the week. Earrings should be removed or covered with tape which they need to provide themselves.
How can you help?
Please help your child practise their spellings and times tables and ensure that homework is completed on time. Please make sure that their PE kit is always in school and all personal belongings are clearly labelled. Each child should bring in a box of tissues for the class at the start of every term. Could you also make sure your child has a glue stick (not coloured) in school every day.
Thank you in advance for your help and if you have any questions please let us know.
