Year 3 have PE on Monday and Thursday (Starting from Autumn 2)

On these days we ask that children come to school in their PE clothes rather than their school uniform. Please can we remind children to wear correct PE kit. Any long hair should be tied up for the lesson and earrings need to be covered or removed at home. Should your child have an after school club that requires them to come in wearing PE kit, please send them in wearing their kit on these days.

Weekly spellings will be given out on a Friday and we expect the children to learn them during the course of the week.  We ask that this sheet should stay at home in order for your child to learn these spellings. The children will then be tested on these spellings on the following Friday.  The spelling groups will be posted below (just incase your child forgets them).

Times Tables

This term we will continue to focus on our 2, 5 and 10 tables and begin to focus on the 3, 4 and 8 times tables. Please can your child practise these at home by writing them out. You can then question them (in and out of order).







....... up to 12x3=36

Please log on to your child's Times Table Rock Stars account (details in Reading Diary) 

You can also practise any times table you like using the 'Jamming' section or you can use the 'Studio' section to get yourself a rock status!


We request that your children reads at least 3/4times a week. We would love it if they are doing a mixture of independent reading and reading aloud to a grown up.

Please record all reading in their reading diary.
