 CLASS DOJO is our new app for behaviour celebrations and rewards in school. You can download the CLASS DOJO app on your mobile phone or tablet now using your unique code from Miss Howard. Class Dojo is a brilliant way of allowing you to see how your child is doing at school every single day. We challenge all of the children in 3RH to be '100% green' and the more green dojo points earned the more prizes to be earnt too. Children with the most points each week will receive rewards in class and will also have their name placed in a school draw for a bigger prize at the end of term. There is also the function for red dojos for those children who are not consistently following the class and school rules, these will be used alongside verbal warnings and will influence our Ladder of Excellence.






Homework information for parents 

Homework is a challenge we set to develop your child's independence in applying key English, Maths and SPaG skills. Homework is their own responsibility and although we are happy for you to assist them where help is needed, please ensure that they have the resilience to give it a go first independently. If you feel that your child is struggling at any time with their homework then please do not hesitate to contact me in school or via their planner.

At the end of each half term there will be a homework reward session for the children in which they will be able to choose a variety of activities to participate in as a reward for all their hard work completing their homework. Any children who haven't completed their homework for the term will be given opportunity during this session to complete it.



We would like you to read at home every night. We don't mind what you read (it could be a newspaper, a comic, a magazine or even on a kindle) but we do ask that you record it in your planner each day and get an adult to sign. 

Remember you can earn rewards for reading at home everyday and this may help you achieve 'Reader of the Week'.

Who will be this term's star reader? 







We would like you to focus on the 3, 4 and 8 times-tables for homework.

We will be testing the children's times tables knowledge across three standards: Bronze, Silver and Gold.

Bronze: You can say the times tables in order.

Silver: You can answer questions out of order.

Gold: You can answer questions using the division facts for the times-tables.


Can you learn as many tables as possible to become a Gold champion?

Rewards will be yours - Impress us (and yourselves)!

The children will be given a set of spellings to practice for a short test once a week. It would be wonderful if you would encourage the children to practice these in order for the children to achieve their best score!

Handwriting is also an important part of English. Therefore, we have provided below a tablet friendly letter join for the children to practice at home, alongside their practice in school.
