The day Jo from the Dogs Trust came to visit.


Toucans and Hummingbirds were very lucky to have Jo from The Dogs Trust come into school to talk about being safe around dogs.  She brought Bessie in to demonstrate how we should approach a dog and how to interact with them.  The children were fully engaged and asked lots of fantastic question.  Well done Year 3.


Dear Parents.

If you were unable to attend the curriculum meeting, please see the PowerPoint below that we shared with the parents.  Any questions, please see either Mrs Jones or Mrs Sawyers. Thank you.

Welcome to Year 3 Curriculum Meeting

Spring Term - Mountain High 

Can I touch a mountain peak?


Take some deep breaths and explore the wonders of hills and mountains this term! We will be exploring what a mountain is, how they are formed and where in the world they can be found. In science we will be discovering everything you wanted to know about soils and 'using the force' to uncover the secrets of magnets! Uncovering the delights of the Roman's and their conquering ways in history and how the Anglo-Saxons came to settle in Britain. We are excited at the wonderful learning that will be taking place this term!


Each week the children will receive spellings and times tables appropriate to their level. These will be stuck into their homework books and sent home every Friday.

If you ever misplace or lose spellings, please let your class teacher know. 

Test days:

Thursday - Times table test

Thursday - Spelling test



Please don't forget your 10-15 minutes a day of Bug Club and your 20 minutes (or more!) a week of TT Rockstars. This needs to be completed between the Friday and the Thursday of the following week.



The school day

The classroom doors will open at 8.35am and close at 8.45am. If the classroom door is shut when you arrive, please take your child to the office and sign them in there. 

The school day finishes at 3.15pm. Please be prompt in being on the playground ready to collect your child and to hear about all the wonderful learning they have done.



Parent meetings

We are delighted to be able to welcome parents and guardians in for a chat when needed but please be aware that there is an expectation that parents and guardians will wear a mask when meeting with staff inside the school. Where possible, please wait until the end of the day and after all children have been dismissed if you need to talk to the teachers.




School uniform reminder


Please ensure your child comes to school in correct uniform everyday. On PE days they can wear their PE kit to school but again, please ensure that they are wearing the correct school PE kit.




The expectation is that your child reads every night and an adult signs their reading record. Their reading record should then be brought in every day and their book changed regularly.












PE Days:

Toucans: Monday & Thursday

Hummingbirds: Monday & Thursday
