Please have a look at our E-Safety pages and check that your child is being safe online at home. We do our best in school to educate about online safety, but if this is enforced at home as well, we can really help protect your children. We have had a focus on E-Safety recently, especially as it was Safer Internet Day on 9th February 2021. The next Internet Safety Day will be on Tuesday 8th February 2022.

Below there are many links and resources to help with different areas of Year 3. There are videos related to our topic, Maths related help and details on uniform and homework expectations.

Home Learning Tier 1


Isolation Pack


As a school, we have made the decision to use Oak National Academy to support home learning should a child need to self-isolate or a bubble close. Oak National academy provides online lessons that are easy for children to follow and consist of input from a teacher and several independent tasks throughout.


Please find a PDF below, which will have links to a series of lessons, closely mirroring what we are currently doing in class.

Our PE lessons will be every Wednesday (outside) and Friday (inside).





Please ensure that the correct uniform is worn to school each day and that school shoes are worn, not trainers. The uniform code can be found on the school website, or a copy can be obtained from the school office.


PE kit should consist of a blue t-shirt, navy shorts and trainers. In wet weather, your child may want to have a spare pair of socks, that are different from the ones they wear during the rest of the day. In cold weather, your child may want to wear a tracksuit and also their jumper/cardigan.


Thank you.




We are using the Abacus Maths scheme in our lessons. Please find below the planned lessons for this half term. Please use this to provide extra support to your child at home.


Maths is not the easiest subject for some people at school and it can take time for us to see the value in learning the subject and to get our heads around some of the concepts. Below are some useful sites to practice using the different strategies that we use in class.


Feel free as well to get hold of the CGP Maths books. These are a great resource for going through clear maths questions and they lay them out in an easy to read format. There is a range of different books, some that go together like a textbook and then a question book.
