We want our children to be happy at school and ready for learning. Please help them with the following:


  • READING-the children all have a take-home reader to practice and improve their reading fluency. Please encourage them to develop good habits and hear them read on a regular basis. Thank you.


  • PE and Games-this is currently on a Tuesday and Wednesday. On these days, children are to wear black or grey jogging bottoms and trainers with their normal school jumper. Year 4 swim in the summer term. Active Maths sessions will be on Thursday and the children will have regular Go Noodle dance sessions to break up the school day.


  • HOMEWORK-this goes out on a Friday night and needs to be returned by the following Tuesday. The children receive a piece of English and a piece of Maths work. They will also get six spellings to practice and these are also assigned to their Spelling Shed log in too. Homework is linked to previous work done in class but if your child is struggling and you cannot help ask them to bring it in and have a chat with us.  

We hope your child has an enjoyable and happy year with us. Please encourage them to share their worries and problems with us so we can help to sort them out.

If you have any problems or questions please do not hesitate to contact me!
