Reading is an essential life skill; it also opens up a world of possibilities to your child. Year 3 children are expected to read for up to 10 minutes per night. Please fill in the record sheet on your child’s homework. Children only need to bring their book into school when it needs changing.

Spellings are given out on a Monday and spelling tests take place on the following Monday.  Please encourage your child to take this learning seriously and help them to learn their spellings daily.

Every Monday your child will bring home a homework sheet with tasks to complete. Please see homework letter below for details. This must be returned by the following Monday.

Homework letter

 Thank you for your continued support with homework!


PE lessons are on a Tuesday and Wednesday. Please send your child to school in their P.E Kit – white t-shirt, plain black or navy shorts / plain black or navy jogging bottoms, plain black or navy hoodie.

In Spring 1 children in Year 3 will be attending Castleview for swimming. Swimming kit – plain black or navy costume (girls) / swimming shorts (boys).

Indoor footwear

Just a quick reminder that your child is to wear plimsolls inside of school.  Please can you make sure that your child has a pair in school with their name in and ask them not to take them home as they can be quite forgetful and our spare supply is going fast.
