PE

We do PE on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.  Please make sure your child comes in in their PE kit and is not wearing earrings.  Thank you!

Although homework at Primary School is not compulsory, we believe that it is an important part of a child’s school life.

  • It provides great opportunities for them to learn independently.
  • It allows children to take responsibility for their learning; setting time aside and being organised – a valuable tool when moving through Key Stage 2 and onto secondary school.
  • Reinforces and consolidates classroom learning.
  • Provides opportunities for parents and children to enjoy learning together.
  • Inspires children to want to extend their learning.

 

Children will be set the following homework:

  • MyMaths
  • Timetables Rockstars,
  • Y3 statutory spellings
  • Reading.

Miss Tubridy will be pinging adults with the weekly breakdown of statutory spellings and recommended reading.

Topic
A Take Home Task will be set each term which links to the topic for that term.

Further Guidance on Homework
Homework should never cause unnecessary stress or anxiety for the child or parent. Please let the class teacher know if you feel this is the case. We recommend that children in Yr 3 and 4 do not spend longer than 30 – 40 minutes in any one homework session.
Please encourage your child to take pride in the good presentation of their homework.

Many thanks for your cooperation,

Miss Tubridy

our victorian topic

We went on a school visit to Preston Manor as part of our Victorian Topic on the 2nd November. Pupils also made some junk models over half term as a take home task, which is also part of the topic.

Mindfulness

We are big on mindfulness here in Y3 so we sometimes get outside to do it (when the weather permits!)
