Goosnargh Oliverson's Primary School

Goosnargh Oliverson's Church of England Primary School



Children are expected to read a quality novel for at least 15 minutes each day to be recorded in their reading record by parents/guardians. Children are expected to bring their reading book and reading record signed into school every day please.



Every  Friday  your child will have a weekly spelling test.  This will be made up from spellings based on the spelling pattern we have been learning in class and  5 words taken from the Year 3 common exception word list which should be learnt at home. You can see each week’s spellings on the spelling document below.  

Thank you for your support at home.

A handy list of high frequency words (HFW) to help your children at home. The expectation is that Year 3 are secure in all of the words from Reception, Year 1 & 2.


Mymaths homework will be set weekly on Friday to be completed by the following Tuesday.

All children have been sent home with their individual username and password.  

Times tables

Times tables should be practised regularly at home; knowing these is crucial to performance in Maths and the expectation of the national curriculum is that all children should know their times tables up to 12 x 12 by the end of Year 4. This means being able to recite times tables ie. 1 times 5 is 5, 6 times 4 is 24 etc. and knowing related division facts i.e.  5 divided by 5 is 1, 36 divided by 3 is 12 etc

The children will practise their times tables on a daily basis using Times Tables Rock Star Maths.  Children have their own user name and password to use the app at home.

They will also be tested on a specific times table each Friday. You can see each week's focus on the document below. 

Thank you for your continued support.
