Children should have their P.E. kits in school everyday, consisting of: black shorts, house t-shirt of appropriate colour and black school pumps (not trainers) in a bag please. Please ensure that all items have names in. This term we are covering dance and outdoor activities.
Please make sure that jewellery is not worn by your child on their PE day. Jewellery needs to be removed before they come to school as staff are not allowed to remove it. Thank you.
Your child will be receiving spellings every Friday. Please practise these at home with your child in preparation for the spelling tests which will take place every Thursday or Friday.
Your child will receive a piece of English and Maths homework every Friday. Please could we ask that homework books are returned on Wednesdays in order to allow time for marking and preparing their next piece of homework.
Your child will have a reading book and a diary. Please could you return reading books back to school with a written comment in their reading diary so that their books can be changed.
Please do not hesitate to contact a member of the Year 3 Team should you have any further questions.
Thank you for your co-operation.

In English, during the spring term year 3 will be focusing on persuasive writing and poetry. Our learning will be taught through two quality texts; The Great Kapok Tree by Lynne Cherry and Harry the Poisonous Centipede goes to sea by Lynne Reid Banks.
In science we are learning about plants including different parts of plants and what they need to survive. During the second half of the term we will be investigating the different types of rocks and soil.
This term our Creative topic is all about The Rainforest. The children will be given the opportunity to visit and experience The Living Rainforest, which is an indoor greenhouse tropical rainforest.
This is an exciting learning opportunity for our children.
Below are the websites that the children will be using for homework and independent learning at home. If you have any questions or need additional details, please ask your child's class teacher.
