What You Will Need in Year 3

Reading Books:  Your child will need to bring their reading book and reading record to school every day. You are encouraged to read with your child every day and to sign their reading record.


Children are set weekly online maths and English homework. They are also expected to visit the Times Tables Rock Stars website three times a week in order to practise their times tables. Children are expected to arrive in year 3 knowing the 2, 5 and 10 times tables. By the end of year 3, children are expected to also be secure with the 3, 4, 6 and 8 times tables.
