Homework for this academic year will again be provided a little differently. Each week, on Friday, class teachers will send home homework online or in physical form. Due to the effective, efficient and valuable learning online, we will continue to send some homework by uploading it onto Purple Mash. Other weeks will be in the form of a physical homework book in which pupils must complete their tasks and return their books. We appreciate some families will have preferences for both formats and therefore have agreed a combination of both options will support everyone.  


Homework is a great way to top up the learning that has taken place within the classroom. In most cases, staff will send home work related to the topic areas taught within the week or areas that have been covered prior to it being sent home. 


Within Year 3 & 4 there will be a weekly SPAG (Spelling, Grammar and Punctuation) challenge or a Maths challenge. Creative homework tasks may also be sent home during some weeks or a table of creative challenges may be uploaded for children to complete at their leisure throughout a half term (often linked to a COJO famous explorer). 


We encourage Year 3 & 4 to be reading their home reading books for at least 10 minutes a day as well as regularly practising spellings throughout the week (found in the spellings tab).


As learning our times tables is a key focus in years 3 & 4, we encourage the children to regularly log into their Times Table Rockstar account (using the log in details sent home) and play at least 5 games each week. 


Please contact school if you have any questions in relation to anything mentioned above.   


Keep up the hard work at home Class 3 smiley

5.11.21 Homework for this week has been set on purple mash. The tasks are aimed at the times tables that we are currently focussing on. Any further practice throughout the week with random questioning of the focussed tables will be great.

Please continue to read and bring home reading books to school every day, even if you don't need them changing.

Spellings for this week can be found on the spelling tab of our class page.


12.11.21 Homework has been stuck into homework books and is due to be returned by next Thursday. The task is based on the written multiplication calculations that we have worked on this week. Spellings can be found on our spellings page.


19.11.21 Homework for this week has been set on purple mash and is based on the electrical circuits that we have been working on in class. Spellings have also been added and reading is expected as usual.


26.11.21 Homework is set on purple mash and the tasks are based on the time objectives that we have been working on this week. Any reading of analogue and digital time will support the children's understanding. 


3.12.21 A slightly different homework this week! You are now responsible parents to your adorable little baby potatoes this weekend. Please take good care of them and report back all the things that you do in your booklet. Please don't drop them on their heads and make sure that they don't keep the household awake all night with their crying.

Spellings can be found on the spelling page and please try and complete home reading books over the next couple of weeks so that you have new for over Christmas.
