Year 3 Routines
Reading – In Year 3, the children read every week with an adult during group reading. Children bring their independent reading books everyday as we like to read at every opportunity. Everyone has a reading record where adults and children can comment on what has been read each time they read. Every child is encouraged to read daily to enhance their fluency and comprehension. Once they finish a book, the children need to ask a parent to sign their reading diary.
Spellings – Spellings are given out on a Monday and are tested on the Friday. The children are expected to practice their spellings at home.
Homework – Homework books are sent home on a Wednesdays, and returned the following Monday this is to ensure there is enough time to mark homework and give children appropriate feedback and support where necessary. Homework is a mixture of Topic, Maths and English. Please click on the link to access this terms homework. Homework
PE – PE is on Tuesday and Friday.

“There are Seven Skills in the Way of Jalal,” whispered the Elder Paw. “We know only three of them. Their names are these. Slow-Time. Moving Circles. Shadow-Walking.”
Varjak Paw is a Mesopotamian Blue kitten. He lives high up in an old house on a hill. He’s never left home, but then his grandfather tells him about the Way – a secret martial art for cats.
Now Varjak must use the Way to survive in a city full of dangerous dogs, cat gangs, and strangest of all, the mysterious Vanishings..
Year 3 and 5 collaborated to highlight the world wide problem of plastic in our seas and oceans. We used bottle tops, straws and plastic bags to create this masterpiece.
In science we have been learning about bones and muscles. We carried out an experiment to learn which muscles we use when we read and when we run.
All Star cricket fun with Mr Owen. We have been learning lots of new skills and having a great time as well.
