Each week, Year 3 will be sent home homework in a range of subjects.

Currently, Year 3 have the following homework days:
* Maths, SPAG or English - sent out Friday for the following Wednesday.
* Reading - daily for at least 20 minutes = five times a week.
* Times Tables - practicing daily.

What happens if you can not do your homework?
If you can't do your homework at home then the door is always open for you to come in to school and do it. Likewise, if you are unsure of a question, come in and see your class teacher before/after school or at break/lunch time. We are here to help!

Times Tables

Make sure you are learning your times tables all the time. You are expected to have rapid recall of all the times table facts of the 2's, 5's, 10's, 3's, 4's and 8's by the time you have finished Year 3. 


You will be tested weekly on your times tables during our Mental Arithmetic lesson.

Why not make x table practice fun? Login to Times Table Rockstars to earn coins for getting questions correct. Remember, there are extra rewards for the children who earn the most coins.

Physical Education



PE for Year 3 will be every Wednesday and Friday. It is expected that pupils wear the correct school kit. All earrings need to be removed (due to Derbyshire County Council policy, we can no longer provide tape to cover them) plus a bobble be provided to tie back long hair. In colder months, pupils may wish to bring a tracksuit. Please could you also ensure all items of P.E kit are clearly labelled with your child's name. Thank you.
