Spring Newsletter

Welcome back to school. We hope you’ve all had a lovely Christmas break and we can’t wait to get started with some fantastic learning over the Spring term.

Here is some useful information to help you get settled back into school life.

PE Day

Our PE lesson is now on a Tuesday, so children can come to school in their PE kit. Please remember no jewellery, football shirts and appropriate footwear.


It is really important that your child reads 20 minutes each day minimum. If you are able to read with your child, that is also extremely beneficial to support them. Please could you update reading records in your child’s planner, sign this each week and remind your child to leave their reading planner out on the desk as soon as they come into class.


Homework will be sent out weekly on a Friday. This will be literacy and maths, which will be consolidating learning they have done in the classroom that week. Please encourage your child to return this to school by the following Thursday.

Read Write Inc

To provide children with additional reading and writing support, some pupils will be receiving additional reading booklets. These correspond to the reading and writing activities we will complete in class. Practising at home will give your child a greater chance to thrive.


Each child will be given a login to TT Rockstars and Purple Mash. These are all apps that you can access through most computers and laptops, as well as tablets. If you are missing or have misplaced a login, please let a school adult know.

Times tables

We will be having a huge focus on Times Tables in year 3 in preparation for the Multiplication Tables Check in year 4. It is very important that by the end of year 4, the children know all of their times tables fluently up to 12 x 12. We will do lots of work on this in year 3 but please encourage your children to do extra practice at home. They all have Times Table Rock stars logins which is a fantastic resource for practising. We will send home a weekly times table of the week sheet to practice, as part of their homework, each Friday. They will be tested on this times table the following Friday.

Golden Time

Golden Time will take place every Friday afternoon to celebrate the children's hard work and good behaviour - the children can bring one toy and we will sometimes have special activities or treats.

Non-Core Curriculum

We are learning about some fantastic topics this Spring term.

Please see attached in the files section the knowledge organisers for each subject. This will give you an overview of what your child is learning about.

Please keep checking your class page for further updates.

Thank you,

Mr Galpin
