Year 3 have PE on Monday and Tuesday.

On these days we ask that children come to school in their PE clothes rather than their school uniform.

Please can we remind children to wear correct PE kit. Any long hair should be tied up for the lesson and earrings need to be covered.

Long Term Plan



Homework Practise is split into two sections: Compulsory and Optional Home Practise.



Weekly spellings will be given out on a Friday and we expect the children to learn them during the course of the week.  We ask that this sheet should stay at home in order for your child to learn these spellings. The children will then be tested on these spellings on the following Friday.  The spelling groups will be posted below (just incase your child forgets them).



Times Tables

This term we have continued to focus on our 2, 3, 4, 5 and 10 tables . Please can your child practise these at home by writing them out. You can then question them (in and out of order).







....... up to 12x3=36

Please log on to your child's Times Table Rock Stars account (details in Reading Diary) and complete the teacher challenge set for that week.

You can also practise any times table you like using the 'Jamming' section.


We request that your children reads at least 3/4times a week. We would love it if they are doing a mixture of independent reading and reading aloud to a grown up.

Please record all reading in their reading diary.



There will be a few optional tasks for your children to have a go at every week using our two online resources- Sumdog and EDshed. The children's login details can be found in their reading diary. Please let us know if you have any trouble logging in.

Purple Mash

Please feel free to login to your child's purple mash account at home and re-visit work we have previously done or for them to play with the other paint/draw tools. Login details are again in the diary.
