homework

Homework is for all children and consolidates the learning that children have covered in class each week. Homework tasks can be completed in homework books. Their homework books will also contain their mathletics logins.

Weekly homework will consist of:

  • Spellings
  • Maths task
  • Quiz of the Week

Children can practise their spellings, complete the Maths task and answer the quiz questions in the homework book. The answers will be posted the following week so that parents and children can self-assess their answers at home. Please remember not to return the homework books to school.

If you would like to contact the Year 3 team please email us at:

year3@grafton.bardaglea.org.uk
