Welcome to our Year 3 VSchool page


A reminder that the children do not get free fruit in KS2 but they can bring their own fruit for break time. Many children ask us for 'spare' toast at break time. Unfortunately we don't have spare toast as the kitchen cooks just the right amount for the children on our lists. Please ask your child if they would like to have toast each day and add their name to the list. You can pay online. 

PE is every Monday afternoon.

P.E. is each Monday  afternoon. A reminder that PE kit is a white T-shirt, red jumper/ hoodie and red shorts or black leggings or sports pants and trainers or pumps. Please wear PE kit to school on Monday. 

Start of the day - The school gates will open at 8:35am and close at 8:45am.

End of the day - The school gates will open at 3:15pm and close at 3:25pm.

A reminder that children should bring a water bottle into school every day and this should be washed and refilled at home. Please provide a bottle with a sports cap and not a screw top. If your child has packed lunch they need an extra drink please. They can bring juice for lunch time. No fizzy drinks please. 

Please bring a coat every day as the weather changes rapidly in Haslingden. For warmer weather the children can bring sunglasses and sunhats. They can put sun cream on before school.

home learning tasks 

We will expect your child to complete learning tasks at home to support their learning in school. 

These will include online resources and they will receive their logins during the first week back. Our main focus will be:-

Your child will bring a home learning book on Friday with a piece of Maths and English for you to complete with your child/children at home and return it the following Friday. This half term we will send a reading text and ask you to follow the steps for Reading for Fluency at the top of this page. The children will then have to answer different types of questions, similar to assessment questions. They will have a Maths activity that supports their learing that week. They will also have a Maths timestables booklet that they don't need to return. Please complete a sheet a night and go through the answers with them. 

We will be sending a weekly reading comprehension and a Maths sheet home to be completed for the following Friday. This will be linked to the learning for the week and your child should be able to show you what they have been learning. The final week of each half term will be an opportunity to complete work in a different subject. 

Hear your child read every day and sign their Home/School diary for a Dojo point. 

They must aim to change their book at least once a week.

We have added some book review sheets in the file share section below - if they have really enjoyed a book they can complete a book review to recommend it to their friends. These can be brought in to school to share with the class. 

Help your child to learn their spellings. These will be in their Home/ school diary each week.

Thank you in advance for your support. Together we will work to enable your child to be the best learner they can be.

Online games/apps

All children will have their passwords stuck into their reading records for the online games platforms that we use in school. 

This half term this will be:- Spelling Shed, Numbots, TT rockstars, MyMaths, Science Bug

Some children will practise using these games in school and need to practise at least 3 times a week at home. This is so important for building fluency in their spelling and number skills. We will be checking who has played on these games and dojos and certificates given for participation.
