Our School Behaviour Codes

  • Be safe and happy
  • Be respectful
  • Learn more


We encourage all children to follow these codes carefully.

British Values   

As part of our British Values in Year 3, we will be learning about democracy by encouraging the children to make decisions together. One of the ways we will be doing this is by holding class votes. We vote for our School Council representatives and also vote for our Behaviour Ambassador each half term.


Mutual respect and tolerance of each other are part of the values underpinned in Year 3, and the importance of accepting, respecting and valuing the feelings and views of others is embedded in the day to day learning. We will be learning about similarities and differences, and how these should be celebrated. Children are always encouraged to develop their self-confidence and self-esteem, and to express their needs and opinions. 


The children are taught the importance of having rules and routines in place within the school and classroom, and how they contribute to making our school a safe and happy environment. They are always encouraged to think about their actions and make good choices.  Our Behaviour Ambassador helps children to make the correct choices.


We work together to help one another and to make Year 3 Poplar an amazing class!


Our Behaviour Ambassador for this half term is:

READING - read every day at home and write comments in children's reading journals. Certificates are given when children have read a certain number of books:

Bronze - 25 books     Silver - 50 books     Gold - 100 books     

SPELLINGS - we have spelling tests each week. Copies of the words will be uploaded to Class Dojo.

KNOWLEDGE ORGANISERS - these are provided for each of our Science and Creative Curriculum topics. They show the key facts and vocabulary that children will be learning. We refer to these at the beginning of each lesson so children need to read them at home to consolidate their understanding.

Homework tasks will be set at the beginning of each half term and will relate to our learning in school. Children will be able to choose which tasks they would like to complete. Homework should be returned by the end of the half term.

Special Events (2021-2022)

Creative Curriculum


Our topics enable us to develop and apply knowledge and skills in different areas of the curriculum, such as history, geography and art.  These lessons take place during the afternoon.  Where possible, we go on educational visits or invite visitors in, so that we develop our learning and understanding more.  These are the topics that we will be covering each half-term.
