Alongside the weekly homework set, please also remember that your children will benefit from going on Times Tables Rockstars and Purple Mash, something that they love to do in school. Your children's logins and passwords are stuck in the back of their homework books. Please make a copy of these so year 3 can access the websites from home even when they don't have their homework books with them. Thank you!
The benefits of working regularly on IDL are well documented and so we hope that if your child has been given the opportunity to work on IDL in school that you will encourage them to access the website at least 3 times each week at home in addition to their time allotted in school. They do this independently at school and so it should be perfectly straight forward for them to do on their own at home although they may love to show you what they do! Passwords are at the back of their homework books for IDL too.
Spellings are stuck in your child's homework book each week. To see spellings for the whole half term, please refer to the 'Spellings' tab in the Year 3 section of the website. Thank you!

Starting next week , we will be focusing on continuing our learning of times tables with a weekly sheet of times tables questions in our maths lessons. We will be focusing on x0, x1 and x2 for our first week. As the children become confident, they will progress to learning other tables too. Having a sound knowledge of times tables gives your children a wonderful head start as they are introduced to new mathematical concepts throughout their education so do please encourage them to use Times Table Rockstars (password at back of homework books) at home regularly. There are lots of other helpful resources online, including fun songs (eg. Percy Parker) & games to help with the learning and give them the confidence they need to move forward with success in their times tables learning.
For x0, when any number is multiplied by 0, the answer is always 0.
eg. 2 x 0 = 0
eg. 300 x 0 = 0
For x1, when any number multiplied by 1, the answer is always the number you started with.
eg. 2 x 1 = 2
300 x 1 = 300
For x2, any number that is multiplied by 2 is 'double' the original number. All numbers in the 2 times tables are 'even' numbers.
We have badges to earn for success in learning times tables too -
BRONZE for a sound knowledge of x2, x3, x5 & x10
SILVER for x4, x6, x7 & x11 and
GOLD for x8, x9 & x12.
Wishing Year 3 lots of fun and success in learning their times tables!
