  • The PE days are currently a Monday and a Tuesday. We ask that all children come into school in their PE kit.



The homework set for Class 3 children is as follows:

  • Accelerated Reader/Reading for between 30minutes and 1 hour each day. Please find more information below. 
  • We also ask that your child spends at least 30minutes a week practising their times tables or their numberbonds. They can do that through Numbots, Times Table Rockstar, or other written methods (please see at the bottom of the page for the Around the World practice sheets).
  • Spellings are tested each Monday and a week is given to learn them.

There are only school based spellings for the rest of the year.




Here are some spelling learning techniques that you may choose to use to help you practice: Link here

It is expected that your child is to read for at least 30minutes to 1 hour per day. Accelerated reader quizzes can be accessed at home. Please click on the link below and then enter in your user name and password.

If your child has forgotten login details: The username is the 1st letter of your child’s first name and the first 4 letters of their second name. Regarding their password, if they have forgotten that, please do email me so that I can confirm.

Run out of books?

If you are getting to the stage where your child has run out of books. Below, please find links to several E-book libraries: 

Alternatively, there are nearly 500 articles under the ‘Accelerated Reader Articles’ button that your child could choose to read and then take a quiz on.

Note: Once on the Accelerated Reader Articles section, ATOS BL stands for the child’s accelerated reader book level. Please try to ensure that children read articles that are within their school reading levels.

If it ever gets to the stage where E-books or online articles are not enough, please send across an email and we can arrange leaving some physical books for you to collect.

 Can I use books from home?

If you are downloading books and want to know if they are on Accelerated Reader, you can search for them using this link:


The Around the World challenge is something that is tested in class every 2 weeks. Each child is given 3 minutes to complete the sheet and all of the answers must be correct for them to pass to the next level. The Around the World Challenge determines which times tables your child should be practicing.

To practice these sheets at home, please see the links below:

Please note: Although there are 2 sheets for each level, only one part of that sheet is tested on at a time.
