Miss Ashton, Miss Clark and Miss Hassall

PE usually takes place on a Wednesday and Friday, however these days do sometimes change. We ask for children to bring in their PE on a Monday and take it home on a Friday. Please bring both indoor and outdoor kit to accommodate our changeable weather.

Homework is due in on a Thursday and handed out on a Friday.

Homework will consist of:

  • Spelling rule games on Purple Mash
  • Alternate Grammar and Maths games on Purple Mash.

Golden time is awarded on a Friday for children who complete homework.

Reading diaries are usually checked every day, and an additional break takes place on a Friday for children who read at least 3 times per week at home. 

We also test spellings and times tables on a Friday.


Learning is engaging in Year 3 and Miss Clark continually reminds us that ‘’attitude is more important than ability’’.

We use the Building Learning Power animals to be resourceful, reflective and resilient in when we are working and being a good team member is important to us.

Our learning is cross-curricular as far as possible, which helps us to make links across all the subjects and develop a depth of knowledge in our chose topic.

Every half term, Miss Clark introduces a different topic with which we, as a class, immerse ourselves in.

Reading is at the heart of our learning and always linked to our topic. As a class, we enjoy sharing stories and developing our understanding of the text.

From humble beginnings the river flows down the mountain and into the sea. Pull on your wellies and wade right in. How deep does it go and how fast does it travel? What soil types can you find by the river? Which animals make their homes there? Let’s get down to the river bank and find out! Now hop on an imaginary boat and travel some of the world’s most majestic rivers – the Ganges, the Thames, the Amazon and Nile – and keep a journal as you follow their course. Time to investigate! As part of the local news team, it’s your task to track down the source of some mystery pollution. Where did it come from and who is to blame? Let’s meander through the world of rivers, taking a dip into their watery world!

We allow staff time off to undertake union official duties, however we do not have any staff who are currently union officials.
