Statutory spellings for year 3 & 4 are here - it would be helpful to practice these at home.
- Reading remains a very important part of your child’s English progression. Please support us in helping your child to improve by listening to them read regularly (5 times a week) and dating and signing their reading records. Children need to have their reading record and books in school every day and to ensure they take them home in the afternoon.
- Homework will be set on the online platform on a Friday and will be due in on the following Wednesday.
- PE will take place on a Tuesday and Thursday this term. Please ensure your child wears their PE kit into school. Please bring some clean socks and shoes, in a plastic bag to wear after PE on Thursdays if it is muddy.
- Please check this page for information, updates and to see what we are learning.
