Year 3


Year 3 had a lovely time visiting the library on Wednesday - we enjoyed a storytelling session and also had the opportunity to choose a book to read whilst we were there.

Stone Age Day - The children had a great day on Monday - they took part in lots of different activities including jewellery making, stone age art, making a woolly mammoth out of junk modelling materials and creating Stonehenge out of biscuits!

Must do at home, please: (reviewed termly)

Homework Expectations – Year 3 

Homework will be set every Friday and should be returned by the following Wednesday. Pupils are expected to complete every set task. Generally, homework will be one piece chosen from a selection on the homework grid and a set of spellings to learn. Additionally, children must read and record their reading in their diaries at least three times each week. 

Work in books is expected to be of the same standard as work in school, with neat handwriting, diagrams in pencil and care take to include appropriate punctuation and good spelling.
