Summer 2

Each week our set homework will include your child's reading as well as spelling practice for 10 weekly words. These words will follow a particular spelling rule and occasionally will be challenge words taken from the Year 3/4 statutory spellings lists. Please do not be alarmed if your child has different spellings. We will always send your child home with the spellings list associated with the Year 3 curriculum to ensure your child is accessing and familiar with these words however we have tweaked spellings to ensure progress at each individual child's level. Spelling tests are on Friday's. 


Alongside weekly reading, spelling and times table practice, your child will also be set some online activities linked to grammar and Maths. These activities may be set on MyMaths, TTRockStars or These websites were accessed during your child's time in Year 2 so shouldn't be anything new to them.
