Welcome to Year 3.

PE days for Year 3 

PE will be on a Tuesday and a Wednesday. Please ensure your child comes to school in their PE kit on those days

PE Kit = black pumps, white T-shirt or school T-shirt and black shorts. 

Remember earrings cannot be worn for PE and must be taped if unable to remove BEFORE school


Reading Books

Please ensure that your child brings their reading book to school everyday.

Regular reading at home is a key component to learning. Children will be given a reading book to take home at the start of the half term. When they read with an adult, they are expected to record this in their reading journal. 


Please ensure you comment and sign reading record books. If your child is struggling with their book or do not enjoy it after attempts at reading it then let us know.

Homework is expected to be completed in every week.

As your spelling and maths homework is online this will be monitored by your class teacher.

If you are unable to complete the online work a print out can be requested.


Spelling - we will hand out spelling homework each Wednesday for a test the following Tuesday – please help your children practise their spellings at home.  They will also need to complete their spelling homework set on Spelling Shed -Your child's login details can be found in their reading record.

Curriculum – each half term curriculum homework will go home.

Please ensure it comes back into school for regular marking.

Maths – each week your child will be set some work to consolidate what they have been learning that week on Sumdog – this will help embed their learning. Your child's login details can be found in their reading record.

Reading – children will be sent home with home reader books. Please ensure that you read them with your child and sign their record!
