End of day



PE will be on Wednesday and Friday

On PE days, children need to bring PE kit (labelled) in a separate bag, so they can change into their kit for each session. 


Full PE kit must be worn and that includes, a white t-shirt, black shorts or jogging bottoms, a sensible pair of trainers and a drink (during the cold seasons it is advisable to bring a jumper).

 Children with their ears pierced must remove their earrings for each P.E session themselves or alternatively they will need at have plasters in their P.E bags to protect their ears during physical activity. Long hair must be tied back. Due to COVID-19 please send your child into school wearing their PE kits to school, this will reduce the risk of cross-contamination of clothing whilst getting dressed. The more physical PE session is in the afternoon, so there should be no reason for the worry of children being in the same clothes for too long after physical exercise. 


Homework will always be math focused and is sent out on a Friday and must be returned by the following Wednesday.

Children are expected to read at least three times at home with an adult. Each read should be logged in the reading diary, and brought in to school every day so that their reads can be counted. Awards are given for 50, 100, 200, 250 reads.

Spellings will be sent posted on Dojo weekly. Please help your child to learn these spellings and discuss the different rules with them at home. This can be done if the words are spotted in their reading book or if they use one of the spelling rules in a conversation etc. If you require any support for different activities to do to help your child learn their weekly spellings, please drop me a message on Dojo and I will be happy to help.

Times Tables

By the end of Y3 children are expected to know their 2, 3, 4, 5, 8 and 10 times tables.

In year 3 we introduce the multiplication tables of 3, 4 and 8. This is built upon taught tables in Key Stage 1 of 2, 5 and 10.

Times tables will be tested weekly.
