P.E. is taught on Wednesdays and Fridays. Please make sure your child has their full kit in school at all times. 


  • Reading - Please encourage your child to spend 5-10 minutes, a few times a week, reading their home reading book. Please record any reading that has taken place at home in their reading record. You can help by questioning them about what they have read including talking about the characters, making predictions about what might happen next and asking the children to recall specific information. Once a child has finished their book, it can be placed in our reading basket in the classroom to be changed. 
  • Spellings - Each week we have a different spelling focus, which is fully accessible on Spelling Shed. You will find some of the words that your child has been practicing in class in their yellow homework book. We ask that children put these words into sentences to help their understanding of vocabulary. 
  • Maths & English - Your children will receive both Maths and English homework each week. This will consolidate what we have been covering in class that week. This should take no longer than 30 minutes. 
  • Big talk - In your child's homework book you will find details of a 'Big Talk', this is a short description of what our writing task will be the following week and how you can help prepare your child at home.  


Homework is given out on a Friday and should be returned by the following Tuesday. 

I hope all children settle well in to their first year of Key Stage Two and enjoy their time in Year 3!
