In the Summer Term we will begin our Swimming.  This will take place on Wednesday mornings at Crown Pools in Ipswich.


Homework is given out to the children on Fridays and should be returned by the following Wednesday morning.  Homework can be in many forms, and is directly linked to some aspect of the childrens current learning.  The children are encouraged to complete their Homework and make sure it is handed in on time, with good work being awarded rewards according to our school policy.

Spellings and Times Tables are given out on Friday and tested on the following Monday.


We encourage all parents to read with their children for a few minutes every day.  Reading together can be a very rewarding activity as well as hugely beneficial to your childs development across all areas of the curriculum.

In Year 3 and throughout KS2 all children read using the Acclereated Reader (AR) scheme.  AR is a powerful computer programme for monitoring and managing independent reading practice. 

Following a ‘STAR Reading’ test, your child is given a ZPD range, e.g. 3.4 – 5.1.  This can be found in their planner.  They are then able to choose books from within this range.

Once your child has read a book, they take a fun motivational quiz on the computer to test their comprehension of the book they have read, aiming for benchmarks and targets set by their teacher.

You can view your child's progress from home using Renaissance Home Connect™.  You can login using the password in your child's planner.

Your child may take part in group reading, guided reading and independent reading, as appropriate.  We use a variety of text types, varying in length, genre and complexity, to provide them with sufficient challenge.  We try to instill in the children an intrinsic love of reading that will last them a lifetime.
