Homework Diary - The homework diary that your child will receive is intended to be used as a communication tool between parents and staff for homework, reading or general enquiries. We will endeavour to check the homework diary every day so please encourage your child to have it in school with them every day. If you have any concerns you wish to raise which are more personal or require a more in depth response then please write a separate letter to your child's class teacher. 

If your child is being picked up by someone other than yourself, please inform the class teacher or write a note in their homework diary. Thank you.

Uniform  - Please make sure that all school uniform and PE kit is clearly labelled as it helps the children to identify their own belongings. P.E. kits must be in school every Wednesday when the children will have PE with MSporti. Swimming Kits must be in school each Friday (unless otherwise notified). Please remind your child to bring a coat every day in the winter months. Please encourage your child to bring a named water bottle to school every day.

Medication - Please let the school and your child's class teacher know if your child has any condition requiring medication, including allergies or asthma. If your child needs to be on a course of medication then please complete the relevant form which is kept in the school office. 


Over the past four terms, Year 3 have been lucky enough to explore and research a range of new topics. In Term One, we had an incredible visit from Mr Berry who taught us all about the different types of rocks. In Term Two we showcased our magnificent acting skills in our wonderful production of "The Magical Christmas Jigsaw". Term Three saw our little thespians become Canadian residents for the day; they loved researching the differing lifestyles and habitats of the Canadian animals and immersing themselves in Canadian culture. During Term Four, as well as enjoying the unexpected snow days, we have enjoyed a range of scientific activities during science week and finally, making and taste testing healthy dips just in time for a chocolate filled Easter!

We are now looking forward to an exciting trip to Tonbridge Castle and learning all about the Great William Shakespeare. Enjoy the Easter Holiday!
