We are introducing a new policy regarding PE Kit. Children will need to come into school wearing their PE kit on their PE days, which are listed below.
Year 3 – Tuesday and Friday
This will maximise the time spent in PE by cutting out time spent changing, it also means PE kits can be washed weekly, as opposed to termly, which is more hygienic. This policy requires that children wear the correct kit, this consists of a school logoed navy t-shirt, navy shorts or navy/black tracksuit trousers (not leggings) and a navy/black jumper along with trainers to be worn to school and plimsolls/indoor shoes in case PE is in the hall.
If your child does not turn up at school in their kit on their specified PE day they will be doing PE in their uniform and school shoes. It is a legal requirement of the curriculum for children to take part in PE weekly.
Please visit our policy page to read our uniform policy.
Year 3 will be going to the Castle Swimming Pool for lessons on Tuesday mornings during term 5. Please ensure your child brings their swimming kit each Tuesday.
Homework will be sent out as a paper copy every Friday. Homework is expected to be completed by the following Friday. Work should be completed at home on the sheet given. Please ensure it is handed in by the following Friday.
See our English page for Reading updates.
See our library page for recommended reading lists and a class recommended reading list is handed out as a paper copy at the beginning of each new term along with the newsletter and knowledge organisers.
Currently we are working on ensuring that all the Year 2 Statutory Words are learnt. A paper copy of these will go out every Friday. Children will focus on a group of ten each week that they will practice in school and at home. They will be tested on a Friday. We will then move on to Year 3 Spellings.
By the end of Year 3, pupils should know their 2x, 3x, 5x 8x and 10x tables confidently. Please help your child to practise their times tables at home. These will be tested each week
