I created these grids and based them around our Topics.
Some of the ideas are taken from other homework grids.
Each term or half term, during the first week, your child will be given a homework grid.
The grid contains activities linked to all areas of learning (English, Maths, History, Geography, Science, Art etc).
We do ask that the work should be your child’s own work and should be completed to the very best of their ability.
The only other homework set will be reading at home and weekly spellings and maths facts to learn.The aim of the homework grid is to exceed their points target.We have discussed this in class, and the children understand how to select appropriate activities.We know that homework is beneficial to both children and parents, but sometimes children find homework ‘boring’, ‘a waste of time’ and ‘pointless’.To ensure work is consolidated and extended at home we are going to think about homework a little more creatively.Your child can choose how to present their homework, but by the end of the term they must have evidence of all activities completed in their homework folder.They may wish to use computers/laptops for their homework, produce a Power Point presentation, make a model or write their responses down.If you have any problems do not hesitate to ask for help. We believe it can consolidate and enrich the learning that takes place in school and, in addition, provide a window for parents and carers to be a part of their child’s educational experience and development.Please click on the link to view the Year 3 Homework Grid.I have been trying a new way of Homework this year with my class.
