Homework plays an important part in children’s learning at the Junior College and this support is vital in helping children develop their basic skills.  Homework in Year 3 is made up of three aspects

  • Children are expected to read every night for 10-15 minutes. Children have a reading scheme book and a book from our library. We ask parents to make a comment in their child’s reading diary each time they hear their child read at home.
  • Times tables. By the end of Year 3 we expect children to know their times tables. There is a weekly test and children receive awards as they learn each set of times tables. We expect children to have instant recall of each times table to achieve the award. Children need to spend time practising and learning their tables at home.
  • Spellings. Children have a set of spellings to learn each week for weekly test. Their results are recorded in the children’s home-school book, as are the next set of spellings for the children to learn. Children will work on their spellings at school, but will need to practise them at home.
