PE: Monday

Children will come into school in PE kits. All children must have a white top or house colour, black or navy shorts. Trainers, black or navy joggers and jumpers will be required for outdoor PE.


Swimming: Friday

Please remember a swimming hat, swimming costume/trunks and towel for Friday swimming.



They must have a named water bottle and named waterproof coat in school every day. We also ask that children bring in some wellies for play times that can be left at school, especially as the weather gets wetter and the field gets muddier.


All equipment is provided for their learning so children do not need to bring in their own pencil case and/or pens and pencils from home. We discourage any items from home being brought into school as they can be easily lost and it can be upsetting for the children when this happens. 



Healthy snacks are encouraged for break time, e.g. Fruit and cereal bars. No sweets, chocolate or crisps please. In order to be careful of nut allergies and you must not send any nut products to school. Children also require a spill proof bottle of water. No fruit juice – only still water please.


How can you support your children at home?

Reading: You should read with your child at least 5 times a week at home. This can include Reading Eggs.


Spellings: New spellings are sent out on a Monday and tested the following Monday. These can be practised on Spelling Shed or sheets can be printed and sent home.


TT Rockstars: Use TT Rockstars to practise times tables. Children will be tested through the ’99 club’ on a Friday and be rewarded with badges as they complete each 'club'. 


Topic homework: There is a topic homework sheet attached linked to our topic of the term. We would like the children to choose at least one activity to do and bring in to share with the class. 

Recent events

Thanks to the hard work of Mr Meads and his team over the summer, both Albatross and Penguin classrooms have been completely re-decorated in a neutral, botanical decor, in order to provide the children with a calming environment for learning. We had a great few days getting to know each other before the summer holidays for the transition days and all the Year 3 staff are excited and ready to welcome all the children back in September for some fantastic, fun learning in our new classrooms.
