 Year 3 Homework Timetable/Information

Year 3 – General Homework Reminders

On Friday of each week, the children will be given their homework tasks.  It will typically comprise of learning their times tables, weekly spelling, daily reading and one additional piece of homework.  The homework should be handed in on the following Wednesday.

Homework diaries/Reading Record Books
These two are combined into one book in Juniors:  a homework diary. 
Reading is an integral part of the homework policy- 20 minutes every evening with some supervision.  Reading must be recorded in the homework diaries for us to keep track of the books the children read at home, at school (during guided reading sessions with the teacher) and their progress through the year.
Please remember to sign and date your child/children’s homework diaries by the end of each week.  This will let me know that you are aware of the homework set and that it has been completed.   
Homework diaries should be used as a way of communicating with each other.  I aim to check the diaries twice a week, but please ask your child to let me know when you write a note in it for me so I get to read it as soon as possible.
Completion of homework
Please note that homework is not optional.  All homework must be completed neatly and handed in on time.  However, if your child is unable to carry out a piece of homework due to illness or any other circumstance, please let us know. 
The allocated time per task in Year 3 is 20 minutes.  We will always try our best to set a balanced amount of homework, e.g. if the writing task might take a little longer then the science or maths task may be shorter.   If your child finds a particular piece of homework difficult, please work through it with him/her for the length of the time stated and either sign at the bottom of the piece of homework or write a note in the homework diary for us.
Many thanks for your help.
