On this page you will find all the information you need to support your child with their learning in Year 3 and their time in Owl Class.
Homework books have now been given to each child. It is expected that they complete one Maths, English and another homework each term. These books are due back in every Friday. Please do bring books back in every week, even if your child has not completed homework so we can stick in their new spelling list.
Homework can be submitted in class or via google classroom each term
There is also a reading record for Term 1 in homework books. It is expected that each child reads at home at least 4 times a week and this is recorded in their books. Please also ensure your child is accessing spelling shed and timestable rockstars at home weekly too.
Homework club is now running 4 lunchtimes a week for Key Stage 2 from Monday to Thursday. Your child can choose to go to this club to complete any homework and may be sent their towards the end of the term to give them a helping hand in completing it all by the end of the term.
February Half Term Challenge 2022
Wow! How is it Term 3 already? What a fantastic job you have all done so far! We can't wait to see what you all achieve this Term.
Our Question for this term is ‘Could you have survived the Stone Age?’ We will be learning all about the Stone age to Iron age. In Science, we will expand our knowledge about light. Our English lessons at the beginning of the Term will focus on the story of ‘Stone Age Boy’, in which we will be writing diary entries, recounts and effective descriptions. Towards the end of the Term we will be starting to prepare for our Year 3 and 4 production and writing our own script!
In Maths, we will recap some more multiplication and division skills before moving onto money and statistics. We will then use our knowledge and take part in some “Acitve maths” sessions throughout the term.
P.E will be every Wednesday and Friday this Term. Wednesdays will be athletics and Fridays will be Netball.
Forest School will be every other Tuesday starting 11.1.22. Please remember to wrap up warm as it does get chilly out there and bring wellies to change into! Thank you.

Useful Information For Supporting
Your Child At Home
Staying Safe Online
With children becoming more tech-fluent, it is vital that both children and parents/carers understand how to stay safe online when using a computer, tablet, phone or games console.
This Thinkuknow website is a fantastic government interactive tool to teach both children and adults how to stay safe online.
We recommend using this website to support the conversations we have in school about e-safety and to develop your own knowledge of how to keep your child safe when they are online.
The parent/carer section also has a CEOP reporting link should you discover an unknown person attempting to contact or message your child in any way that is inappropriate.
To support your child to learn their times tables at home, we have provided them with their own account for the TTrockstars website.
This website is a fun, challenging and safe way for your child to develop their times table skills and play against children from around the world in a variety of games.
Every week new tasks will be assigned to your child on the Spelling Shed website.
These tasks are designed to help your child develop their knowledge of spelling patterns and rules which will support their learning at school.
