Anything that you can be doing at home to help your child is brilliant. In Year 3, we would like the children to be reading at least 3 times a week and practising their weekly spellings. The children still have Times Table Rockstars accounts and Spelling Shed accounts which are fun ways of embedding some of the facts and rules.
By the end of Year 3, the children are expected to know their multiplication and division facts for the 3, 4 and 8 times table in addition to the facts they learnt in KS1 (2, 5, 10). Below are some videos which might be fun to sing along to together!
