Times Table practise

In year 3, the recall of multiplication facts are very important. We encourage you to practise regularly with your child, from x2 up to x12 tables. Here are some websites you could use;




We would like your children to read at least three times a week. Children will receive a ‘book worm’ certificate weekly for regular reading.


Unlike previous years, we won’t be setting any English homework as such this year. We will be sending home pre-learning work before any new topic so that the children can find any information that they want to research, bring it in, and their interests will inform our future lesson planning.  

Spellings will be given out on Monday and tested on Friday.



Our P.E days are, usually, on Tuesday and Thursday. Please make sure that your child has their full indoor/outdoor P.E kit in school. Also make sure that your child has taken out their earrings or has tape over their earrings.




If your child requires medical attention in school please contact Mrs Nicholls and complete the relevant forms to keep school updated and keep your child safe in school.
