Reading and/or talking about their reading to an adult for at least 20 minutes, 5 times a week. Complete your child’s reading record each time they read. Remember it doesn’t always have to be their school book. Reading records and reading books should be sent into school daily.


Times Tables Rockstars = 4 times per week Click here

Each child has access to Times Table Rockstars. It is the same login as Numbots. By the end of Year 3, children need to know their: 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8 and 10 times tables off by heart. 


At present children should have learnt their 2, 5, 10 and 3 times tables in school. This is a great video  to help learn the 3's and a good channel for the other times tables: click here.


There will be weekly tournaments running from Wednesday to Wednesday. We have set 2. 5, 10 and 3 times table this week. 

  • Your child can play for a maximum of 30 minutes each day
  • Which will be the first class to win by playing the most? 
  • Highest scoring class gets a certificate 
  • Highest scoring student from each class gets a mention
  • Highest scorer across the year group gets a certificate 
  • There are also lots of ideas here to help learn their times table - including Year 4 style assessment practice: Click here

Curriculum words:





Science We are learning about skeletons. A visit to the Natural History Museum or Science Museum would be great for the children. These museums are free and lots of fun!

Learning at home

At Fielding, children are expected to learn at home. This helps them to develop skills in key educational areas. Whilst we understand lives are busy, these need to be prioritised. 


Teachers have noticed some children are not regularly doing some or all of these. This also means that some children are not reaching their full potential. 

Please see your class teacher if you would like to discuss further.  

  • Read daily (children sign daily and parents sign once a week).
  • Play Times Tables Rockstars 4 times a week (see the parent guide at the foot of this page).
  • Practise spellings daily (see question prompts at the foot of this page).
