    • Thinking
    • Reflecting
    • Researching
    • Teaching

  • Home Learning

    Home learning tasks are set every week :

    Task: Given out: Due Back:
    Mathletics Wednesday Thursday
    Spelling Book Friday Following Friday


    • To read for at least a minimum of 10 minutes every day and record what you have read in your reading journal. 
    • Practice your times tables and spellings
    • Fill in your reading diaries and have a grown-up check and sign them.

    Home Learning Tasks

    Dates of Project Homelearning:




    P.E is on  Mondays & Fridays

    • School PE uniform is black shorts (or tracksuit bottoms) with a white t-shirt and a change of shoes (either plimsols or black trainers).
    • Girls should bring socks to wear if they have worn tights with their regular uniform that day.
    • PE kits should be in school at all times, apart from at the half term when they will be sent home for a wash.
    • Make sure you have leggings or tracksuit bottoms as we will be outside for P.E unless it is raining
  • Children will also:
    • Know that they can affect the quality of their own learning
    • Know about some of the recent evidence and research into the brain and learning
    • Be able to apply these theories to their own learning and reflect on their importance
  • Maths

    We will be looking at place value

    Place value is important because it helps you understand the meaning of a number. If people just used numbers randomly, no one would know which numbers people meant. You need place value to understand the order of numbers as well.

    Place value is the value of each digit in a number. It means understanding that 582 is made up of 500, 80 and 2, rather than 5, 8 and 2.

    • The children will learn to recognise the place value of each digit in a three-digit number (hundreds, tens, ones).
    • They will use larger numbers up to at least 1000. 
    • They will also be applying partitioning related to place value using varied and increasingly complex problems, building on work from Year 2 (for example, 146 = 100 + 40 and 6, 146 = 130 + 16).
    • Then they will use their understanding of place value and partitioning, and practise using columnar addition and subtraction with increasingly large numbers up to three digits to become fluent.
    • Finally, they will learn to connect tenths to place value, decimal measures and to division by 10.
  • English

    We will be continuing to improve our SPaG knowledge, skills and understanding, in particular:

  • statutory SPELLING LISTS

  • important dates
