Reading homework is given out on Fridays.

What are we learning?

We are working as teams of archaeologists in our Mantle work.

We have been asked to excavate the site of an Anglo-Saxon settlement for our HISTORY.

We found some bones which led us to find out about the skeleton for our SCIENCE.

We are able to teach our GEOGRAPHY, ART and DT through our Mantle as well.


We read in class every day. At the moment the children are in reading groups and read regularly with the adults in class. They will also have the chance to read their school library books, look at books linked to our Mantle work and change their library books every week. 

We also do reading with the class at other times with work linked to our Literacy and/or Mantle.

Every day we have story time with the teacher reading to the children. 

Some children will have extra reading opportunities to develop their reading skills. 




In Year 3, we continue to develop our independence in writing and become more accurate with our spelling, grammar and punctuation. We write for a wide range of purposes, including within our Mantle and other work. 

We work on our spellings every day using No Nonsense Spelling and practise our handwriting as well. We use Spelling Shed in class and can use it at home as well. 

Some children will have additional chances to build their writing skills as needed.


In Key Stage 2 we use the White Rose Hub Maths plans. We follow a concrete, pictorial and abstract approach to learning in Maths.

At the moment we are learning about addition and subtraction, as well as measurement.

Children work on times tables everyday and should practice regularly at home too. 

We do a daily times tables quiz and also enjoy using TT Rockstars to get better and better! They can use this at home, too.


Every week Rob works with each class on Music skills, and Year 3 also take part in Rocksteady Music's Feel Good Fridays to further develop their musical knowledge as well as having fun. We will also sometimes have the chance to work on additional musical opportunities within our Mantle.



We follow the Worcestershire Agreed Syllabus for RE. 




We follow the PSHE Association Programme Builder plan to structure our teaching in this area. We use the resources recommended in the plans such as Discovery Education and NSPCC Share Aware. 



Computing and Online Safety

We are working towards becoming a verified National Online Safety school. We will be following their plans to teach online safety.
