 Spring Term is here!

Our theme is ‘Where in the world?’

The children have started to ask questions during our EPIC planning sessions.

We have looked at where we are in the world and the children are beginning to research a continent of their choice.



  • We have reassessed where the children are with their spelling groups and tests will begin again on  Monday January the 20th.
  • Tables will be tested on Wednesday. We are looking for speed of recall and knowledge of the divisions linked. The children work on the 2,3,4,5 and 10 times tables in Year 3. They need to know these in depth before moving on to the 6x and 8x.
  • You all have a Mental Arithmetic Book that you can do 1 page a week from, no more please. This needs to be handed in on a Monday to be marked, ready to go back out on the Friday.
  • Reading is such an important skill, that develops throughout the whole of our lives. We ask that children are listened to read at home at least 3 times a week. Reading together and sharing a bedtime story is a wonderful experience, that has such benefits to your child’s overall growth and learning. These occasions need to be recorded in Reading Diaries, focusing on understanding of the story line, as well as fluency, expression and accuracy.
