In light of the current situation, we are now setting online weekly homework. Your child’s log in details will come home in their green book, which should then remain at home. If you have any problems with accessing the online platforms or your child has limited computer access, please contact your child’s class teacher via the office.

Spelling: This will be set every Monday to be completed by the following Monday. Children will use an online spelling curriculum using Purple Mash. Each child will have ten words to practise in their homework book before completing an online quiz. Your child will be tested on their spellings weekly on a Friday. The first spelling homework will be sent home week commencing 21st September once we have accurately assessed the children and ensured they are learning the most appropriate words.

Maths: This will be set on a Monday and to be completed by the following Monday. This is set using an online program called My Maths. Additionally, children should be practising their multiplication tables and related division facts regularly as we assess these weekly. They will receive logins for Times Table Rock Stars to support this. 

Home Reading: Your child will have the opportunity to choose a library book to take home each week. We encourage you to listen to your child read on a regular basis and discuss the events, characters and settings. Your child will have a home-school reading book for you and your child to record what they read each week. An adult in the class will check this on a weekly basis. In addition, all children can select a school library book of their choice, which will stay in school for quiet reading times. Your child’s library days are as follows:


3D and 3B – Thursday (Reading records return on Tuesdays)
3R and 3W – Friday (Reading records return on Wednesdays)

Residential Trip

In the Spring Term, Year 3 children have the option of visiting Hooke Court to tie in with our topic of changes in Britain from the Stone Age to the Iron Age. A variety of activities are available such as: an archaeological dig; making natural dyes and weaving; cooking fish in clay and cutting up food with flint and gathering around a campfire in the evening to share and investigate their archaeological finds.

Further details, including the dates and cost of the residential, will be provided for parents and carers in a letter.


Children who stay at school will enjoy an exciting Stone Age Workshop.
