homework-pencil - Sacred Heart School

In Year 3 you will receive a booklet at the start of half term. This will include Maths homework and English Homework and the booklet is to be completed throughout the half term. The booklet is to be handed in on Monday 27th Match.

*Any children who have not brought in their homework by Monday 27th March will be expected to stay in at break or lunch time to finish it with no exceptions*


Each week spellings will be handed out on Friday these are to be learnt at home during the week and they will be tested on the following Friday.


Children in Year 3 are expected to read their reading book at least 3 times a week to an adult and their reading log needs to be signed. If your reading log is not signed by an adult we will presume you have not read. Reading is also counted as homework, so if children fail to read at home they will need to spend break time reading. There will be rewards for children that are reading consistently.

*Reading logs will be checked every Tuesday*

TT Rockstars

Children should also be logging on TT Rockstar's as much as they can and practicing their times tables. Children's log in's can be found on a sticker at the front of their reading log. Some weeks children will be asked to complete TT Rockstar's as their homework so if your child can't log on please let us know.


We will be learning about lots of exciting things over the coming half term. You can find more information about these topics below. Our History topic is about Ancient Greece. Looking at explore Early civilisations, culture, influence. In science we are exploring  plants and what they need to grow and thrive in different environments. In Design & Technology we will be linking to our History topic and we will be making Greek Chariots. We will also be having a Greek Day this half term were we will be dressing up and exploring what life was like in Ancient Greece.
