Year 3 Homework

Please note there will be no spellings coming home in the WC 12/6/17 as the children will be having a spelling test as part of their SPAG assessment next week.

Maths homework 


Please note maths homework will be set via Mathletics. 



Please note that spellings are now based on year 3 words set down in the National Curriculum (please see document below for further information) with some topic and high frequency words also included. These will be set in Spag sessions on a Friday with the test taking place the following Friday. Spag (spelling, punctuation and grammar) sessions will take place in classes 3 times a week from January onwards and replace phonics lessons. Some phonics based interventions may still continue for specific children and specific spellings may also be set. If you have a query regarding this please feel free to contact your child's class teacher.

Welcome to the year 3 homework page!



It is expected that the children do regular reading each week and we would be grateful if you could support this. As well as hearing your child read, it is really useful if you assess their understand of what they read. Here are some examples of questions that we often use to do this:

  • How might this character feel?
  • What might happen next?
  • How would you feel if you were...?
  • Have you ever felt like the character in this story? When?
  • What would you do if...?
  • Why do you think this happened?
  • Why do you think this character reacted like that?
  • Why did the writer use the word.......
  • What punctuation did the writer use on this page? Why did they use...


At least three examples of reading (name of book and how many pages) should be recorded in their reading records with a signature from you to confirm they have read.
