Key Information -
PE Day -
PE is every Tuesday afternoon this term and whenever the weather permits, the lesson will be outside, so suitable PE kit will be essential - jogging bottoms & tracksuit tops might be important additions to the standard kit! Children must come to school dressed in their kit.
Homework - Maths and English Homework is set on Fridays for completion and hand in by Wednesday.
Reading - Children are given up to 3 new reading books on a Monday, which must be returned on a Friday. These are then quarantined over the weekend and are changed by the children on the following Monday. Regular reading remains the greatest support that parents can offer their children. As children progress in reading, discussion of the books becomes as important as listening to them read - by Year 4, the children need to be able to identify simple themes and make predictions using evidence from the text.
All children have been given log ins for Oxford Reading Buddy. Any problems, speak to your class teacher.
In Year 4, we are very lucky to be starting music lessons with Mr Naylor on Fridays. Children are learning to play either the violin or the cello. Please remember to bring your instrument in every Friday and take it home to practise throughout the week.
