Autumn 2017

 

Dear parents and carers of children in Year 3

 

Y3 Homework Arrangements

 

We believe that homework helps to reinforce the children’s understanding, knowledge and skills and to strengthen independent learning.

The continuation of the Homework Diaries enables us to:

  • provide another channel of communication with the class teacher

  • give parents a clearer idea of homework tasks and completion/return dates

  • help your child to take greater responsibility for his/her learning and progress

     

    Homework Diary Arrangements

  • The homework diary must be brought to school each day
  • Please take time to check to see what tasks have been assigned every day
  • Please sign in the space provided for parents
    • to acknowledge that you know what your child needs to do
    • to confirm that the tasks have been completed
  • Use the space provided to write a comment about your child’s reading progress and to make any other comments related to your child’s homework.
  • Staff will be checking through diaries every week to assess whether you have acknowledged the homework that has been assigned and it has been completed.

 

The homework tasks are:

  • Daily reading
  • English work
  • Maths mental work e.g. multiplication tables (occasional)
  • Written Maths work
  • Occasional Science work
  • Additional work sent home for Foundation Subjects in the holiday
  • Spelling

 

 

Time

  1. a general rule 20-30 minutes per evening is suggested as appropriate for Year 3 children although this could be spread over the week/weekend.
  • The homework diary, homework books/sheets should be kept safely and if possible carried to and fro in a book bag that may be purchased from the school office.
  • We are sending home another copy of the homework timetable for you to place on the fridge or somewhere convenient for you to keep a check on the homework schedule.

 

Yours sincerely
