Homework Page Overview

This page is designed to help keep you updated on your child's homework and spellings for the week. 
Each child is signed up to Spelling Frame and have their own password with a spelling list that is suitable for them. Some weeks we will practise words with spelling patterns whereas other weeks we will practise high frequency or subject words. Spelling Frame is a fun and interactive way of practising spellings and I am sure that your child will be more enthusiastic about this way of learning them!
In Year 3, we focus on learning the 3, 4 and 8 times tables ( the multiplications and related division facts). Times Tables Rockstars will always be set to include the revision of the 2, 5 and 10 times tables as we progress onto the others. To begin with, we will only concentrate on the 2, 5 and 10 times tables.
**Your child will receive their Spelling Frame and Times Tables Rockstars Passwords for use at home and they will have been shown how to access both of these sites in class.
There are also games, activities and worksheets for all subjects available to help your child on our virtual learning platform, School 360 (https://school360.co.uk/login1/index.php). Some of the best can be found by clicking on Resources and then either j2e (which is very popular), Busy Things or IR (Interactive Resources).

Dear Willow Class,

Welcome to Willow Class and what is your first of many ‘news and homework’ blogs of the year! Throughout the last school year, you all became extremely savvy in accessing our class learning pages in order to keep updated with new information and to support your children with the weekly home learning activities. This year, we would like to keep the success of this going by using the class pages to present weekly homework tasks which are subject related as well as weekly spellings. It will also be a page where I share what we have been up to in the classroom, keep you all updated with any important information you need to know and share photos of classroom learning as well as homework tasks. Communication via email has also been very successful as a tool for dialogue between parent and teacher but also as a way of sharing work. It will be good to keep this going too as well as using other tools for homework such as Busy Things and Google Classroom. Each week, your child's homework will be clearly explained via this page which means they will not receive any paper-based copies but if you do have any concerns about accessing the internet or a device, please let me know. 

Many thanks,

Mrs M Smith
