Class Dojo: Children can earn 'dojo points' for any number of positive reasons; such as following the Golden Rules, participating, being on task or working hard.

Star of the day: Each day a child will be chosen for 'star of the day', for working hard that day. Star of the day is worth 5 extra Dojo points!

Star of the week: Each week, 2 children are chosen for 'star of the week' for working hard that week. The award is given in assembly every Friday afternoon.

Sparkle and Shine: Each week, one child per class will be selected for the Sparkle and Shine book which will be read out in assembly. Two children within the school who have been selected for the book will be chosen by Mrs Wild and a postcard will be sent home with the good news.

Fun Friday: On the last Friday of every half term, children will take part in a curriculum enhancement day. Activities such as craft, sport etc will be planned for the children to participate in.

Homework: Homework is handed out every Wednesday and will have an  English and Mathematics focus each week. Please ensure homework is handed in on the following Monday to ensure work can be marked and returned promptly.

Children may also complete the optional 'Pick 'n' Mix' homework tasks and share these achievements during show and tell. 

Spellings: Spelling rules and sounds that we are focusing on each half term can be found in your child's homework book. We will have Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar lessons during the week that will focus on new sounds and also spelling words from the Year 3 and 4 Statutory Word List. Spelling Shed will be updated weekly and available to access via the website.

Reading: It is really important, children in Year 3 read on a daily basis (minimum 5 times a week) to improve fluency and also build reading stamina. Daily reading will support children in reaching the year group expectations. It is also essential that parents listen and question the children to ensure that they are reading with understanding. Below are examples of questions that maybe useful.

Pick 'n' Mix Homework


  • Practise your spellings via Spelling Shed.
  • Practise your 3, 4 and 8 times tables - Times Table Rockstars or Hit the Button.
  • Improve your fitness levels by setting yourself personal goals e.g. how far can you run in 10 minutes, how many times can you skip in 2 minutes.
  • Write a book review and recommend as book to someone else. 

Topic related (Spain)

  • Create an information text All About Spain - this can be presented as a poster, fact file, brochure, powerpoint etc.
  • Taste and review Spanish food - evidence can be presented as a photograph, picture or written review. 
  • Research famous Spanish people e.g. singers, footballers, musicians etc.
  • Design and recreate the Spanish flag - felt tips, crayons, paint, collage etc.
  • Learn or consolidate Spanish words they have practised in class e.g. colours, numbers, stationary, days, months etc.
