PE Kits

​PE is every Wednesday and Thursday. Please ensure PE kits are in school. PE kits are blue/black shorts/tracksuit bottoms, white t-shirt and plimsolls/trainers. Please label your children's PE kits with their names. PE kits can stay on pegs during the week and then be taken home to be washed over the weekend.

Superstar Readers

Children are expected to read every day. It's vital that the children read regularly so that they can access all areas of their learning and make fantastic progress. Parents/carers/children in Year 3 are encouraged to sign in their 'Organisers'/diaries when they have read. Children will be rewarded every half term if they have read 5 or more times a week. Diaries are checked every Monday.

Times Tables

​Children must keep practicing their times tables cards so that they can complete Firbeck's times tables system.


​Spellings are given out every Monday. A good way to practice is by writing the word out in a sentence. Children must learn each word for the following Monday. Any spelling sentences can be handed in by then too.

Homework - Website Links

Children have usernames and passwords (stuck in their diaries) to Mathletics where they can practice and develop their maths skills further.

Additional homework may be given throughout the year.

A massive thank you to parents and families who support their children and school with regard to all these things.
