We hope you enjoyed the Christmas break and are ready for more exciting learning enquiries in 2022!

Our Learning Enquiry

This term we will start by studying our local river, the River Dart. We'll become experts on rivers in general first and how they are formed. We'll then dive into the Dart (not literally!) and explore its many different features - from source to sea. In addition to the physical aspect, we'll also look at the river's impact on human life. Our previous learning around rocks will come in handy too! :) 

PE Days

Our PE days are on Mondays and Wednesdays. Children to arrive at school dressed in their PE kit on these days.

Reading Practice

Children can change reading books on any day and are encouraged to keep a log of their reading in their Reading Record. We ask that parents sign reading records each week. For further comprehension practice after completing a book, children may quiz on Accelerated Reader at school or at home.

Why not try one of Mr Hicks's top reads? 

Maths Practice

In Year 3 we have a big push on learning times tables. Children can practise these via TTRockstars, Maths Shed or Hit The Button. You will also be able to see which times table your child is focussing on in the Reading Record.

Spelling Practice

Personalised spellings, based on each child's own writing, go home on Mondays to learn and practise. Please tick or sign to show that these have been learnt at home. Spelling rules from our spelling lessons can also be practised via Spelling Shed.


Home Learning

Additional home learning will be set via Classdojo.

Many thanks,


Mr Hicks
