Class Routines

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

Emerald – Wednesday (indoor),  Thursday (outdoor).

Olive- Wednesday (indoor), Wednesday (outdoor). 

Malachite- Wednesday (indoor), Friday (outdoor).

Please can PE kits always be in school during the week, to accommodate timetable changes.

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

Milk is taken after playtime by those registered with 'CoolMilk' .

They should bring their own water bottle each day, and take home each evening.

Each week two children from each class will be selected to receive an award in our "Celebration Assembly". These are awarded outstanding contributions throughout the week. 

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:

Monday 4th & Tuesday 5th February 2019- Day in the life of a Roman




Collection of children

If your child is going to be picked up by anyone other than the regular carer you need to inform the class teacher or the office before the end of school. If the class teacher is unaware of any arrangements they will need to phone you to confirm this is agreed. Please make sure the class teacher knows who will be picking up your child to save any problems at the end of the day.

See below for the year 3 Autumn 2 KIRFS.

Reading and Spellings

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

Spelling homework will be different this year to support pupils in meeting the expectations of the new curriculum. Although there are statutory words to learn, there will be ‘unseen’ spelling tests, which will focus on patterns and rules. The children will no longer receive weekly spelling lists, but the teaching of spelling will take place regularly in class, and practice at home is still encouraged. For more information, please ask year three staff, or Miss King.
