Important Information


Please encourage your child to read every day, whether it is their reading book, a recipe, a comic, information when you are out and about or anything that they enjoy reading. This should be logged in the blue homework diary. Once a book has been marked as completed in the homework diary, myself or Mrs Hughes will change it the next day. Where possible please also try to ask children questions about the text they are reading in order to practise their comprehension skills as well as their reading aloud.


Homework is set on Fridays, all children will have a maths task to complete. This term, we will also be giving out an OPTIONAL maths challenge for children to complete in addition to their homework to further their reasoning and problem solving skills. The children who are not doing phonics will also have a SPaG activity to complete. Any issues completing homework, please reach out before the Friday so that we can help!


As a school, we are moving away from weekly spelling tests. Instead, we will be doing mini tests in editing lessons throughout each week in order to focus on any whole class misconceptions. If you would like any information on the spellings we are covering each week, please send me an email and I can let you know.

Where possible, please ensure that your child is also practising the relevant spellings (Year 1 and 2 common exception words and Year 3 and 4 common exception words). Please use the Spelling Menu below to find fun ways to practise spellings. In addition to this, there are plenty of games to practise spelling online such as 'TopMarks', 'Spelling City' and 'Spelling Games'. 


Times Tables/Mathletics

Your child will have a log in for both Times Table Rock Stars and Mathletics in the back of their homework books. It is expected that children do log on to these regularly to complete additional tasks to further consolidate their learning. Their TTRS login will also work for NUMBOTs, however, we would expect the children to be confident in this knowledge by now. 


PE days are Tuesday and Thursday. Please ensure that your child's PE kit is in school every day and they have clothes suitable for both indoor and outdoor lessons.


Please use the downloads at the bottom of the page to find out more about what we are learning in Year 3.
