Class Routines

Children need their PE Kit in school for their weekly lessons - anyone unwell for a lesson must bring a note.

Children who are able to swim without armbands will start their school swimming programme from Summer term.

Children go to the hall for their dinner from     12:10pm each day on a rota basis. Children in clubs or the football league may be given permission for an early lunch.

Each week one child from each class will be selected for 'always doing the right thing' and will go to ALWAYS CLUB for an hour on Friday afternoon.

Curriculum Enrichment

Each term we try to help 'bring the curriculum to life' with an extra activity whether it be a trip, visit or visitor. We appreciate that these additional items often have a cost but they are an essential part of our successful school.

Planned items for Year 3 are:

Thursday 3rd November -- Armley Mills - £4.50




Year 3 children should be encouraged and supported to read every night.

Homework will be set on a Friday and returned by Friday the next week. However, the spelling and tables test will be on Thursday due to timetabling.

'Bug Club' and a Maths task will be set weekly. Sometimes these tasks will be on 'My Maths'. Sometimes tasks will be set in other areas of the curriculum using DB Primary, our Learning Platform.

At the end of each term there will be a LEARNING LOG set. This will be related to one of the units of work that has been studied and may be completed in any style or using any media that the child prefers.
