Welcome to Year Three!

What changed in 1066?


 I hope you all had a wonderful break! This half term we are asking the question - 'What changed in 1066?' We will be exploring what England was like before 1066, what happened in that famous year and what the effect on our country was afterwards. We will also think about how the English reacted at the time! We are looking forward to visiting Battle Abbey in a few weeks time - more information coming out soon!


We are privileged to continue working with Miss Hinkley and Miss Herriott who are trainee teachers working with us for 5 more weeks. They have been absolutely brilliant so far and have lots of exciting ideas planned!


On this page you will find updates about homework and activities taking place within the classroom. Keep checking and make sure you are up to date with any news and photos of our fun learning!


Spelling Homework

Every Monday children will receive a new set of spellings to be learnt that week. They will be tested the following Monday. Even though this is changed weekly, it is extremely important that you continue to remind your child of previous learning. I have put all of this term's spellings in weekly folders below in the homework section in case homework goes missing!


Daily Reading

Children should be reading daily for 10 - 15 minutes with an adult or independently. They will be given time every day to change their home book and will read at least once a week with an adult in school. Yellow reading records should be signed every time a child is read with.



We have PE on a Monday morning and on a Wednesday afternoon. PE kit needs to be in every day as on non-PE days we will change shoes to do the daily mile in the afternoon. During winter it is recommended that children have a pair of jogging bottoms as it can be a bit chilly outside! 


Forest School

On Wednesday afternoons, Forest School with Mr Jones is continuing this term. Thank you for your support in providing suitable clothing for this last term; the weather is likely to be similar this term!



Thank you for all of your support!
