Irchester Country Park

What a super day Year 3 have had today at Irchester Country Park learning lots of new survival skills. We learned to build shelters using the branches of fallen trees and made fire using flint and steel.  A short nature trail helped us to spot the first signs of spring, whilst some observational drawing helped us to appreciate the nature that surrrounds us. We completed an orienteering task which was really quite tricky at first but once we pulled together as a team we managed to solve the puzzles and had great fun in the process. Our wellies have had a good mud bath but the weather stayed dry which was a relief!

Well done for your super behaviour, you represented Bridgewater fantastically and were a pleasure to take out for the day. A hug thank-you to our parent helpers also, your help is very much appreciated!

On a Thursday your child will bring home a home learning task related to something they have been learning during the week. This needs to be returned the following Tuesday.


Each week, your child will be given spellings on a Monday, to be tested on a Friday. Your child will be working on either Year 1/2 or Year 3/4 common exception words, alongside the Year 3 National Curriculum words.

There are many times table songs on YouTube which can help children learn them off by heart.

Your child will be given a log in for Times Table Rockstars, which is a fun way to memories the tables and compete with their friends.

They will also be given a log in for RM Easimaths, where they can work through different mathematical questions and problems.


Please continue to read with your child on a regular basis. The reading record should be completed as often as possible and will be checked when they read with an adult at school. Children should read school books and anything else that they enjoy! The children will have the opportunity to visit the school library once a week too. Please make sure your child’s library book is back in school the following week so that they can return it and get a new one.
