Welcome back to Brandling!

Hello boys and girls,

I hope you've all had a fantastic summer and you're ready for the challenges ahead in Year 3!

I can't wait to get started and back into our daily routines in school. 

Year 3 will be fun of fantastic topics, exciting experiments, brilliant books and we'll make marvelous memories. 

In Year 3, you will be expected to read every night at home. You will have weekly homework, spellings to learn and time tables tests. 

To succeed in Year 3, you need to work hard, concentrate, smile, laugh and most importantly; try your best! 

Mr Hodgson


Homework reminder:

In Year 3, children will be given one piece of literacy and one piece of maths homework per week along with a list of spellings to practice.

Homework will be given every Friday to be completed by the following Wednesday. Spelling tests will be on the following Friday.  

In addition to this homework, children are expected to read their home reading book every night.

Thank you for your support!
