Home Learning

The St Mary's Homework Policy states that:


In Year 3 - 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.

By year 3, all children need to continue to practise their 2x, 5x and 10x tables but to also learn their 3x, 4x and 8x tables. 


I will set homework on a Friday to be in by Thursday. This means that children can complete it over the weekend or over the week to suit all families. The homework will focus on an element of our learning from school that week to further extend children's knowledge and understanding. 


Spellings and times tables  will also go out every Friday and the children will be tested on these the following Friday.


Children should be reading every night and bring their books in daily so class adults can listen to them read as well.
