Year 3 Homework

Welcome to the Year 3 Homework Page. Each week we will upload the homework, with any instructional information to this page. We are not giving set homework in the first week, but would like the children to continue to read (and get diaries signed) and log into and explore the online tool, Lexia. We have given your child a letter home about Lexia, and their log in details are stuck into their homework diaries. Lexia is an excellent reading and spelling support tool, which has a really positive impact on children's learning. It is fun, engaging and easy to access and children love watching their levels rise. 

 

Homework will be set every Friday in Y3, with a spelling test the following Thursday. We will formally start homework next Friday 15th September.

 

As always, if you have any questions please email us on year3@springfieldprimary.net.

 

Best wishes, 

 

Year 3 Team
