Daily – Children need to bring a named water bottle into school every day. Children are able to access outside learning regularly so it is important that they always come to school with a hooded coat. During the summer children should also have a named sunhat.

PE – PE for both classes is on Friday. Please make sure your child comes into school in their PE kit on this day. We will be doing PE outside wherever possible so please ensure they have a suitable jumper and shoes.


If they test positive for covid, we will provide your child with a remote home learning package for the duration of their isolation period.  This will include both online and off-line activities for each day. Details of this will be sent to you via SchoolComms and a copy of it, along with the lesson materials your child needs, will be uploaded into Google Classroom for your child to access using their usual login details.


A Year 3 newsletter is sent out via Schoolcomms each week.

Reading: Please read with your child as often as possible and ideally daily. Reading books will be changed if parents have signed to confirm their child has read on a Monday only.

Big talk:  Half termly a ‘Homework menu’ will be sent out and also uploaded to Google Classroom. The activities link to our work in class for that half term.  Children may choose which activities to complete.  Once an activity has been done, please upload it to Google Classroom.

Spellings: Spelling is a high priority in Year 3. Children will be given words to learn each week at home and will be tested weekly on a Friday.
