Homework will be given out on a Wednesday. In Year 3 this will include a Mathematical activity that focuses on their revision of learnt skills or a writing/SPAG activity. Additionally, spellings and times table are also sent home during the week. Further to this, the children have access to various websites including TTRockstars.

Reading Books

In Year 3, children are encouraged to read appropriate novels and non-fiction books regularly. These generally consist of the banded reading scheme we have in school, however they are also encouraged to free read. They are given 15 minutes each day to read at school and we aim for them to match this at home each day. They should record this in their school diary and aim to have this signed by a parent regularly.


Worship and Reflection Areas

We have a dedicated worship and reflection area in class. Here the children are encouraged to spend time reflecting upon the teachings of Jesus Christ and consider how they fulfil each of our Christian values both at school and at home.


Before and After School

At the beginning of the school day, before registration (8:45am – 8:55am depending on arrival time) the children will have different maths, reading and SPAG activities to complete. These are focused on revision and practising the skills they have learnt previously.

School finishes at 3:30pm. In Year 3, the children must be collected from the classroom door by a parent or appropriate adult.


General Reminders

Our PE days are Monday and Thursday. Please ensure the children have the appropriate kit for each day. 

The children will also need their own water bottle in school, which they have access to all day, please make sure that they are clearly labelled.


Useful Websites



If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us, either after school when collecting your child, on Class Dojo, or by arranging a more formal appointment with the school office.

We know that by working together your child with continue to shine and “Grow with God”.
