 Isolation provision

When your child is absent from school and is well enough to complete their work, please contact your class teacher via email so that they can provide the weekly timetable and resources. The work is reflective of what they would be completing in school.

In the event of a bubble closure due to Covid 19, then links to each day’s work will be uploaded here. A stationery resource pack can be provided if requested. It is still an expectation that work is completed and returned daily by email in order for your child to continue to make progress. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us:

 Summer - coming soon



Our PE day is TUESDAY! 

Please make sure your child comes to school on this day in their PE kit. No jewellery should be worn.

We try to offer a wide range of activities during their PE lessons and this means that your child will need the following items during the year:


P.E. Indoor Kit:                                                 P.E. Outdoor Kit:

T-shirt: Plain white                                          Sweatshirt       

Shorts: Black or navy                                      Tracksuit bottoms

Girls may wear a leotard if they wish                Trainers




In year 3, homework will be set through Purple Mash every TUESDAY. Please support and encourage your child to access this earlier on in the week, in case there are any problems we can help with, such as; logging in, technical problems or not understanding what is expected of the homework. Homework needs to be completed by the following MONDAY evening. All log in details are in the back of your child's home/school diary. 


Alongside the homework on Purple Mash, children will be given weekly spellings, every FRIDAY, to practise at home. Again, please support and encourage your child with practising these at home as there will be a spelling quiz the following week. 


Finally, READING is a key skill for a child through their time at school. We will encourage children to read for pleasure in school and have a selection of books in our class book trolley. However, you child will be bringing home a book that is targeted to their reading age. We would appreciate it if you could listen to your children read their book regularly to support with their comprehension skills and develop a love for reading! 




Value Superstars and WOW certificates


Every Friday we are going to award one child from each class a "Value certificate".

These values are part of the Flying High Trust. They are:








Miss Tucker will host a virtual assembly every Friday in school. (This is not available at home).

Children will be awarded their certificate in class and will be celebrated with the whole school.

Alongside this, we will be looking out for those WOW children - Writer Of the Week.


Good Luck Year 3!
