This year, we are following a new spelling scheme. Please press here for a copy of the Read Write Inc. booklet that was handed out at parent's evening. 


We will no longer be completing a spelling test every Friday. Instead, children will be bringing home a logbook that shows the words they have focussed on through the week. We shortly will be sending out guidance for activities that can be completed at home to practise these spellings.



Our daily homework is to read to an adult at home. There is a bookmark in your child's planner that has example question starters to use to question your child on what they are reading. This will enhance your child's understanding of what they are reading. A copy of this bookmark can be found in the 'Curriculum' area of the website.


This year, we have introduced Accelerated Reader, a site that allows children to complete quizzes for the appropriate books they have read. Please press here for a link to the Accelerated Reader Information Booklet that was handed out at parent's evening.


Books will be changed every Friday if the online quiz has been completed on Accelerated Reader. In our letters section, there is a step-by-step guide for how to use Accelerated Reader to complete the quizzes. 


Times Tables 

Completing 20 games on TT Rockstars is also set and needs to be completed daily throughout the week. This will help to ensure we make our best possible progress during our time in Year Three.


Reading, Maths, Grammar and Punctuation Workbooks

Homework booklets are sent home every Friday. The pages which need to be completed are written on the correct pages and are also sent home in a text. Please only complete the pages which have been set.
