Our Golden Reward Children So Far Are ....


Our class novel is ... 

Diary of a Wimpy Kid by Jeff Kinney


Spelling - we will hand out spelling homework each Friday for a test the following Friday – please help your children practise their spellings at home.

Curriculum – each half term curriculum homework will go home. Please ensure it comes back into school for regular marking.

Maths – each week your child will be set some work to consolidate what they have been learning that week on Sumdog – this will help embed their learning. Reading – children will be sent home with home reader books. Please ensure that you read them with your child and sign their record!

Reading Books

Due to COVID 19 guidance we have to allow the books 72 hours to quarantine before giving new books out. Please only return your child’s book bag on a Friday! 

Regular reading at home is a key component to learning. Children will be given a reading book to take home at the start of the half term. When they read with an adult, they are expected to record this in their reading journal.  

Please ensure you comment and sign reading record books. If your child is struggling with their book or do not enjoy it after attempts at reading it then let us know.


PE days for Year 4 

Swimming will be on a Monday. Please ensure children bring their swimming kit (swimming costume/shorts, towel and goggles) in a bag and wear their PE kit to school for easier changing.

PE will be on a Tuesday. Please ensure your child comes to school in their PE kit on those days

PE Kit = black pumps, white T-shirt or school T-shirt and black shorts. 

Remember ~ earrings cannot be worn for PE
