The expectation for Year 3 children is to already know the 2, 5 and 10 timestable randomly and in order. Please continue to practise these with your children to improve their speed and accuracy of recall. They will now be learning their 3, 4, 6 and 8 times table. Children have now started to have a weekly test. Ask them which times table they are up to...


  • They will have a PE lesson each Thursday. Weather permitting, children will be outside so please ensure they have appropriate outdoor kit. They will have a swimming lesson every Monday afternoon.
