Maths to do at home this term:

Count and order numbers to 1000

Count up and back in steps of 3, 4, 8, 50 and 100

Know by heart 3, 4, and 8 x table

Learn how to tell the time to the nearest five minutes

Know the months of the year and how many days each one have      


Read at home with your child regularly and ask them questions to check their understanding. 

Also, when reading ask your child for any words they do not understand. You can use a dictionary or thesaurus to help them and this will give them a greater depth of vocabulary.

Here are some sample questions you can ask                 your child:

 Describe …, e.g. the giant

 What do you think is happening here?

 What happened in the story?

 What might this mean? e.g. proudly

 Through whose eyes is the story told?

 Which part of the story best describes the setting?

 Which words/phrases tell you that … e.g. the setting  is  spooky?

 Which part tells you …, e.g. they were annoyed that  Goldilocks was in their house?

 Why do …? e.g. why do people need to look after  their  teeth? 

 Also don't forget to allow your child to read non-fiction books as well.


Useful Information:

Monday - PE and Homework handed in
Wednesday - SEAL with Julia

Friday - PE and Homework set

Reading books need to come into school when your child has read their book and their reading​ record has been signed. 

In Year 3 we have a reading challenge aimed at promoting the children to read more. 

For every ten books your child reads they will receive a reward. Our aim is to try and nurture a love for reading and for your child to read as many books as possible.


Homework is given out every Friday and needs to be handed in each Monday

There will be daily​ SPAG and Multiplication activities
