Home Learning (Year 3)
Thank you for sharing all of your stories, feelings and thoughts with us. As teachers we feel like we’re already starting to see your different personalities.
You have adapted so well to the new routines and your new classes. You have made it a very enjoyable experience for your friends and teachers.
Some key information for the moment:
Your spelling and homework will be available online weekly.
Year 3 Times Tables:
Each week your child will be given a times table to practise in preparation for a weekly assessment on a Friday. This is the same format as their spelling assessment.
In this assessment children will be asked a mixture of times and division questions relating to that times tables e.g. 2 X 3 =, or 12 ÷ 3 =. To give the times tables a real-life context we will ask questions such as I have three five pence coins, how much money do I have in total.
We will repeat times tables over a number of weeks so please do not panic if your child is concerned about not knowing them all straight away.
Times tables is the foundation of many areas of maths and it is essential that your child becomes confident in their use. To support them in this please ensure that they are using TTRS for an average of 3 minutes a day. There are also a number of fun songs on YouTube to help children remember the facts.
In school we also monitor children’s use of TTRS to provide support or challenge where needed.
