PE Days and Kit 

Outdoor PE - Thursday 

Indoor PE - Friday


We will not be changing for PE so please could the children come to school wearing joggers/leggings and trainers. As the weather gets colder please ensure your child has appropriate clothing that keeps them warm outside. On occasions your child's PE day may change, if this happens your child will be informed and a Dojo message will be sent out.





My Maths - This will be set weekly. Once children have been given their individual username and password they will have a week to work through the set tasks. Each task aims to reinforce skills taught in class that week or provide children with an opportunity to rehearse basic numeracy skills appropriate for their age phase.


Spelling - This will be given out every Friday and the test will be on the following Friday. Please support your child in learning to read, spell and use these words in a sentence. 


Please visit the 'homework' section of our year group website for more information.


Reading - Your child will choose a reading book, which should be kept in their school bag. This will ensure they have their book readily available to read in school or at home.  Ideally your child should try to read for 10-15 minutes a day. They will then need to fill in ONE book (or chapter) review each week. 





Classroom Equipment

The children will need a small pencil case with a writing pencils, coloured pencils, rubbers, a sharpener and a ruler. They will need a water bottle everyday. 


Please ensure that water bottles, cardigans, jumpers and coats are labelled with your child's name.





If you have any questions or queries please do not hesitate to contact your child's class teacher via dojo. We welcome your messages and any insights into your child. We will also share their learning experiences with you so look out for updates of what we have been doing in class via 'Classroom Stories'. Please remember to report any absences directly to the school office. 




Twitter is also a great way of keeping up-to-date with what is going on not just in Year 3 but throughout our Birchgrove community. It is also where you will find latest updates and information about exciting things for our pupils!
