Children are expected to read every day to an adult and a comment by a parent is to be written in their reading record, at least three times per week.
Homework will include; weekly spellings to be tested on a Thursday and a maths activity linked to the children's work during the week.
Children in Year 4 will get the opportunity to go swimming as part of the P.E lesson. Swimming kit consists of swimming costume/trunks (No baggy shorts), towel, hat and goggles (goggles letter).
Children will have one hour P.E lesson in which they will learn various skills and take part in dances, gymnastic routines and games. They need black P.E shorts, a red t-shirt and trainers and are to come to school wearing these on their allocated PE day. On cooler days, the children may wear suitable clothing eg black leggings/ tracksuit. The children will then stay in their PE kits for the rest of the day. Children must ensure that their earrings are removed and long hair tied back on the morning of their P.E. lesson.
