Year 3 have PE on a Monday and Wednesday.
At present, children should come to school wearing their PE kit on those days. They should have a spare pair of shoes to wear on a Wednesday if their trainers get wet or muddy.
Reading books are changed as and when children have finished reading them - we would expect children to change their books at least once a week. Please sign your child's diary to indicate when they have finished each book. Please ensure your child has their book bag in school everyday so that staff can monitor the frequency of their reading and sign it as appropriate.

Reading and Spelling -It is important to hear your child read every day. Each week your child will have a new set of spellings to learn following a pattern - given on a Monday and tested on a Friday. Please click here to view a range of spelling activity ideas to help your child learn. In addition, please revise all 300 High Frequency words which are available here and the year 3/4 spellings which are here.
Children will have a reading comprehension homework to complete every Friday which is due in on a Tuesday.
Maths - Your child will be given CGP maths homework activity on a Tuesday which is due in on a Friday. They must also learn their 3, 4 and 8 multiplication tables alongside their 2, 5 and 10!
