Message from our Head Teacher

Welcome to Haydonleigh Primary School’s website and to a school where ‘I am talented, together we are amazing’ underpins our philosophy.

We provide a secure and happy environment where the work is varied and challenging and every child and adult is valued. We set the children and ourselves high standards to enable every child to develop his or her potential to the full and become confident learners.

All parents are very welcome at Haydonleigh, and we see home and school working together as very important for your child.

Our website will give you a flavour of our school’s aims, the activities that the children are involved in, the achievements that we have gained and the wealth of memorable experiences that the children encounter.

I hope you enjoy the website and if you'd like to visit the school, please do not hesitate to contact me.

****Please note due to COVID19 we are regularly reviewing and updating the homework we set. It may take the form of an online activity or practising a skill at home. We will set clear expectations each week with the children, explained and demonstrated to pupils in class, and update this page accordingly***

Please note NO homework or spelling books should be brought into school at this time. The children will be given their books, spellings and any necessary login details at the start of each term to take home. Homework will be explained, discussed, reviewed and celebrated in class on a weekly basis. Under each subject heading below are further details of weekly homework tasks set for pupils in Year 3.

 Spellings homework

Please encourage your child to copy out and learn this week's spellings each day, for a total of 5 days every week. There are lots of suggested spelling strategies in their homework books. Spellings are set on a Monday and tested the following Monday morning, so children have one week to learn their words. Please click below to open the spellings below:

From week 3 of Term 1, the reading homework will be available on the Purple Mash website (https://www.purplemash.com) each week. Their homework will be checked by teachers the following Monday.

Your child can find their login details in the front of their red homework book. The weekly tasks can always be found under the '2Do's' tab. Weekly, there will be a chapter to read, a quiz on the chapter, and an optional extra activity. 

Please encourage your child to read at least 3 times each week, to an adult where possible, and record this in their yellow Reading Record.

Maths homework
