In Class 3 the pupils are expected to:
To read their school book or another book every single day at home for around ten to twenty minutes. Discuss the way we read punctuation as well as words, how bold or italic words are read differently. Look for how advanced punctuation is used. For example, speech marks, brackets, commas, apostrophes etc. It is very important that adults discuss these things with their child as they are not likely to notice them on their own.
All children will receive pieces of writing to practise at home. These will be elements of what they are learning at school. Writing entire stories, poems or reports would benefit your child enormously but is not usually the kind of practise that children in these age groups are given for homework.
In maths, by year 3, all children need to continue to practise their 2x, 5x and 10x tables but to also learn their 3x, 4x, 6x, 7x, 8x and 9x tables. Children forget them if they are not used, so a regular (daily if possible) quick and short tables quiz would help your child retain what they have learned. A great practice is TimesTable Rock Stars, check out the link at the bottom of the page. Children will receive support work for the learning they are doing in class.
