Useful information

Please find below details of our weekly timetable and what children are expected to bring or prepare for each day.

Please ensure that children come to school with a coat as we access outdoor learning when we can and we will send them outside at break times unless the weather is very bad.

Children need to have their Reading Record in their book bags everyday.


Children have a spelling lesson where they will learn the focus for the week and any spelling rules which they can use to help them.  The children will be expected to practise this new spelling learning at home during the week as part of their regular homework. 

Children will have also have a spelling assessment on Mondays.  They will be asked to write 2/3 sentences containing some words from the previous week's learning as well as some words from Year 1 and Year 2 common words list.  They are also expected to punctuate the sentences correctly with capital letters and full stops in the correct places.

The current spelling learning for the week is available here.


On Tuesday mornings, all classes have Computing, Gardening and PE.  Please send children in PE shorts, jogging bottoms or leggings and trainers with their school top.  Gardening and PE will be outside whenever possible so please ensure children have a warm jacket or coat, preferably waterproof.


All three class will have PE on a Thursday afternoon, so please send children in dressed in PE kit bottoms and school top as on Tuesdays.  


Reading Records are checked on Fridays.  Children are expected to read aloud to an adult at least three times a week for homework. 

Times tables are tested on Fridays.  Your child should know which table they are working on and should bring home an activity sheet every week to help them practise.

Connected learning homework is due in every two weeks.  Details of the homework can be found here. 


Please ask if you have any questions about any of the above.

Spelling and punctuation

Developing accuracy of spelling and punctuation is a current focus in Year 3, particularly due to the learning children missed during lockdown.  If children have to spend time at home due to needing to isolate, they can work on these areas.  There are a number of useful resources which can be found at BBC Bitesize KS2


Your spelling assessment on Wednesday 6th January will be on these high frequency words. Make sure you know the meaning of each word.

Gods and Mortals knowledge organiser

A Knowledge Organiser sets out what we would like the children to know by heart by the end of the topic. We expect the majority of children to be able to recall all of the information on the Knowledge Organiser by the end of the unit of work. Referring to this will help stretch their long-term memory and develop their recall of key information.

This year, we will be producing 'Knowledge Organisers' which are the ‘go-to’ documents outlining the essential knowledge that the teachers will be covering across a unit of work; including dates, famous figures, vocabulary, definitions, and other information. These Knowledge Organisers will be shared with pupils, parents and carers before units of work are taught, with the aim that everyone knows exactly what is being taught and what the children need to learn.

Here is our Knowledge Organiser for Gods and Mortals. Why not have a look at it and see how much of the information you can learn by heart? You could also research further some of the things you find the most interesting.

Year 3 Portals to the Past day! 

We had an exciting day today on our Portals to the Past experience! We learnt lots of interesting facts and took part in many activities including a quiz, learning how to hunt mammoths, we made our own Stonehenge, we looked at and sketched artefacts and we looked at Bronze Age artefacts. We had such a fun day!

3AB and 3CG Stonehenge art 

Today, we learned about what Stonehenge's are and how they were made. We talked about what they might have been used for. We then used watercolours and black paper to create our own pictures of Stonehenge to show the midsummer sunrise or midwinter sunset.
