Times Table practise

In year 3, the recall of multiplication facts are very important. We encourage you to practise regularly with your child, from x2 up to x12 tables. Here are some websites you could use;


The children will also be given a login and password for TT Rockstars. The website to login to is:


They can use TT Rockstars on almost every platform including IOS, Windows, Android.  If you need any help, just ask! 


We would like your children to read at least three times a week. Children will receive a ‘book worm’ certificate weekly for regular reading. Please actively encourage your children when reading - They will engage more if they are finding it fun. 


Unlike previous years, we won’t be setting any English homework as such this year. We will be sending home pre-learning work before any new topic so that the children can find any information that they want to research, bring it in, and their interests will inform our future lesson planning.  

Spellings will be given out on Monday and tested on Friday.


Our P.E days are, usually, on Thursday and Friday. Please make sure that your child has their full indoor/outdoor P.E kit in school. Also make sure that your child has taken out their earrings or has tape over their earrings.


If your child requires medical attention in school please contact Mrs Nicholls and complete the relevant forms to keep school updated and keep your child safe in school.
