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.

We are brave, powerful warriors, and we will meet in battle! This half term, we’ll divide into two warring groups: the Celts and the Romans. In our battle games, who will be victorious? We’ll research Celtic and Roman warriors and write soliloquies as soldiers. Using different source materials we’ll investigate the Roman Empire and read Roman numerals. After designing and making shields, we’ll test them in battle and practise our attacking and defending skills. The Celtic warrior queen, Boudicca, will inspire us to create stories, models and artwork. We’ll write plays about gladiators and a menu for wealthy Romans. Using maps, globes and information books, we’ll compare Britain (the home of the Celts) and Rome (the home of the Romans). At the end of the topic, we’ll reflect on what the Romans did for us. We’ll become archaeologists, examining and sorting artefacts. You’ll receive an invitation to our art gallery where we’ll give guided tours to explain what we have learnt.
