PE and Outdoor Learning

In the summer term, PE takes place on a Monday and Alternate Thursday afternoons. PE kits consist of PLAIN black shorts or jogging bottoms, PLAIN white t-shirt, and trainers. 

This year, children will need to come to school in their school uniform and bring their PE kit to get changed into. Children will also need to bring their Outdoor Learning kit to get changed into with wellies in a separate bag.

This is the schedule for this Summer 1  term:





Homework in Year 3

Each week, we ask that all children read with somebody at home at least three times a week. This could be any adult or an older sibling or friend. Please sign their diary and add a comment. Every little bit of reading really does help children on the learning journey. We also ask that the children practise their weekly spellings which can be found below. We conduct a spelling quiz each week as part of a dictation lesson, and these words form part of our English teaching for the week. A vital aspect of Maths is that the children have a secure recall of times tables so we ask that they spend some time each week on TT Rockstars practising these. Also, please see below our termly homework grid.
