This will be a fun-filled but hardworking year! We know the children will embrace the challenges that are set and will be encouraging them to challenge themselves too - they are certainly ready for that! We know that they will behave with the maturity and decorum expected and have no doubt that this will be a great year with lots of fun, hard work, success and surprises!
Our PE days this year are on Monday and Thursday. Please ensure you have full PE kit in on each of these days. This year, Year 4 will be swimming on a Thursday morning (after Christmas all Year 4 will be going).
Each week the children will be sent home with spellings they need to practise ready for a test on Thursday. They can do this on spelling shed as well as the paper copies sent home. However the school now has a league table so we'd like all the busy work they are doing to boost their class to the top of the table!
As well as this, we are going to have a weekly times table which will also be tested on a Thursday. This involves knowing both the multiplication and associated division facts (i.e. 4x6 = 24 / 24 ÷ 6 = ?). All children now have their own reading book, please encourage them to read daily, even if it is five minutes!
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask.
Mr Lamming and Miss Cronk
