Homework Expectations

In Year 3, children are expected to read every night at home in order to develop their fluency, comprehension and vocabulary. All children have a homework diary in which they should record which page of their book they are up to. This diary will be checked weekly to ensure children are completing their reading homework. In addition to this, children receive a page of Maths homework per week. This goes home on a Thursday and must be back in school the following Wednesday. During Year 3, all children will be expected to know the following timestables: x2, x3, x4, x5, x8 and x10. These will be tested regularly to ensure they have quick responses. Please practise these with your children. Each Friday, children receive a list of spellings, based on our spelling rule for the week, which they are expected to learn at home. They are tested on these words in class on the following Friday.



We have P.E. every Wednesday and Thursday so please ensure that your child comes to school on these days wearing their sports kit. Kit should include school PE t-shirt, school jumper, tracksuit bottoms (or shorts) and trainers.  

Forest School:

Year 3 enjoyed doing Forest School in Autumn 2! It is not our turn at the moment, but we will let you know when we are doing it next.

Highlights of the Spring Term

Alfie made a Duplo volcano during lockdown

Highlights of the Autumn Term:

We all took part in a Stone Age morning. We learned to build shelters; make bows; hunt for prey; taste Stone Age food; and tell Stone Age stories around the camp fire.
