 Monday and Tuesday afternoons are our allocated P.E slots.

   This term we are focusing on Football and Hockey.

Please bring kit for all weather and trainers.

 

Homework

Our homework is sent out on a Friday and should be returned by Wednesday.

If you would like your homework explaining further, please don’t hesitate to come see me either on a Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday morning, where we can arrange a time to discuss your homework tasks.

 

Make sure you are learning all of your times tables at home so that you can collect your bronze, silver and gold badges! By the end of Year 4, children are expected to know all of their times tables and corresponding division facts for up to 12×12.

Please try to read with an adult at home at least 3 times a week.

Make sure you fill in your reading diary because there are chances to earn reading certificates. All diaries must be in school every day and placed in the basket on Wednesday’s so that reads can be be counted.

How many apps will you be able to collect on your home reading tracker this year?

 

If you have a reading scheme book, please make sure you have it in school on a Wednesday morning so that we can change your book ready for Friday.
