3HF will get their report cards tomorrow. Apologies for any inconvenience.


As it is almost the Christmas holidays, there is no spelling homework. In January we are starting a new topic of 'Light and Shadows'. Please can children do a project to do with this topic, with their name on. It could be 2D or 3D but NEEDS THEIR NAME ON!


ALSO...Please can each child bring a box with a lid as part of a science project we will be doing in the first week back. A shoe box would be ideal. Thank you and happy holidays! 


Outdoor PE- Wednesday

Indoor PE- Thursday 

Please ensure children have the correct PE kit with them for these days. Pupils with long hair should have it safely tied back and ear piercings should be removed or covered. 


Homework will be set on a Friday and is expected to be returned on Thursday the following week.

Please support your child and encourage the completion of homework as it will either revisit work already taught that week or prepare the children for what is coming up the next week.



So far in PSHE Year 3 have been looking at relationships. We had some wonderful discussions about what makes a relationship healthy or unhealthy and the children then turned these into a 'Recipe for a Healthy Relationship'. Have a look at some of the brilliant recipes they have written... 



This week the children did some writing about their strengths and goals. They were focusing on remembering all of the ‘Year 3 Non-negotiables’; capital letters, full stops, finger spaces, handwriting and spellings. They were also trying to use paragraphs in their writing!

Here is what some of the children wrote:

“I am not very good at football but I can improve by practicing because practice makes perfect”- Ellie.

“I think I am the best at rugby because I am good at tagging”- Ashton.

“There are wonderful things I am good at but the main one is dance”- Isla.

“I like caring and helping other people”- Robyn.

“I want to get better at doing flips, athletics, playing the trumpet and keeping my room tidy so I can get a tortoise quicker!”- Arthur.

“I think I am good at running, football and swimming and I want to be a footballer when I’m older”- Oliver.


Remembrance Day

Throughout Art and History Week the children have been doing different activities to commemorate the World War 1 Centenary. Below are some of the beautiful pictures the children created and some letters to The Unknown Soldier.  


Spreading the Christmas cheer

In PSHE the children have been thinking about how they can be good friends and members of the community. We have discussed the power of a smile, a compliment and simply a 'good morning!' and how this can positively impact someones day. The children then created a Christmas decoration which complimented another member of the class. Here are just a few of the examples that brightened our day...
