Year 3

The highest quality care and education for all our children

At Oswald Road Primary School we aim to provide the highest quality care and education for all our children thereby giving them a strong foundation for their future learning. We create a safe and happy environment with motivating and enjoyable learning experiences that enable children to become confident and independent. We value the individual child and work alongside parents, carers and others to meet their needs and help every child to reach their full potential.

Children are expected to read daily at home and reading records need to be signed. Reading journals should be completed for each reading for pleasure book. Spellings are set every week on EdShed. We also encourage children to practice their times tables on TT Rockstars regularly.


Homework Policy

PE Days

  • Friday- Indoor PE
  • Wednesday– Outdoor PE

PE Kit

Outdoor PE – shorts and jumper/sweater, t-shirt and trainer (jogging pants can be worn in very cold weather). Indoor PE – close fitting shorts or leggings and t-shirts. Please ensure that your child’s name is on each item and they wear their PE clothes in to school that day as they will not get changed for PE.


Please make sure your child’s name is on their lunchbox. All lunch boxes are kept on the children’s pegs. Children should bring a water bottle to school every day.


Coats should be put on pegs inside/outside the classroom. Please name your child’s coat.
