Year 3 – ‘Dahl’ and ‘Cowell’


Children will receive weekly homework in Year 3. This may consist of a piece of GPS (grammar, punctuation & spelling), an English or a maths activity.

Homework will be set using Google Classroom. Your child will have been given a log for this. Google classroom can be accessed via the Virtual School link at the top of this page.

Children should be reading five times a week at home. Where possible encourage your child to read daily, even if it is just 5 minutes squeezed in. It doesn’t have to be their book from school, it could be a magazine, comic, annual or anything else they enjoy.  Children have reading diaries where you can comment on your child’s reading at home and they can keep track of the books they have read. There is also a useful section on common words to read and spell. Reading books will be changed on Tuesdays.

Swimming & PE

Just a reminder that Dahl and Cowell have Swimming on a Thursday. Dahl will have PE on Monday and Tuesday and Cowell will have PE on Tuesday and Friday. Children must come to school dressed in their PE kits and will continue to wear them for the rest of the day. PE kit is a white t shirt, blue or navy shorts and suitable footwear (trainers or pumps).

Water bottles

Due to current COVID restrictions, children are not allowed to have water bottles in class.  Named cups will be provided for drinking water, and these will remain in school. It is important for children to keep hydrated throughout the day.

House Points 

Children will be awarded house points for outstanding effort, kindness, helpfulness and anything else that staff feel they have worked hard on or gone above and beyond for. These will be collected on ClassDojo.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate in coming in to speak to us. Many thanks for your continued support.

During our poetry work this week, we have been looking at alliteration. The children went on a hunt outside to find nouns and adjectives that they could join together to create alliteration, some of the children even made up their own. We loved taking our learning outside.
