In all Year 3 classes games will be on a Monday and PE on a Wednesday. They should bring their PE kit in at the beginning of each half term.  It should stay in school every day and it will be sent home at the end of each half term to be washed.

In addition, your child can bring in trainers on a Monday for outside games lessons and each day to take part in the daily mile!  Trainers should be the only PE kit that needs to be carried in and out of school during the half term.



Your child will bring home a new list of spellings to learn on a Friday or Monday and will be tested on those spellings the following Friday.

Maths homework will be sent home on a Friday and should be brought back to school on the following Tuesday to be assessed. English homework is in the form of a topic based project (Autumn term - Transport).  

If your child is struggling with their homework, we encourage them to speak to their teacher/s. 

Please support your children; we are focusing on the 3, 4, 5 and 10x table at the moment.



We encourage the children to read for 10 to 20 minutes a night.  Having children of our own, we are all aware of how busy daily life can get.  However, reading is SO important for your child's development which is why we are making this plea to support us with reading at home!

Each child has been given a home-reading book and a reading record booklet.  All we ask is that it you read with you child (preferably) or at least check they have read and then sign the reading record to show us that they have read. Please insert page numbers alongside the date your child has read and your initials or signature.  This is so we know when to change their book and to provide us with feedback.  You are also welcome to make any comments to keep us updated with reading at home.  If you do make comments, just ask your child to point this out to us the next day and we can respond as required.

We will hear your child read each week in class during guided reading sessions.
