The class teachers for this year group are Mrs Hunt (Tuesday -Friday) and Miss Calcutt (Monday), supported in the mornings by Mrs Grime and Mrs Cowling, Learning Support Assistants.  
Our Topic this term is  ‘Community and Inheritance'. You will receive an overview for each topic that we complete in class. It is designed to inform you and also help you to support your child at home.

PE lessons

It is important that pupils have their PE kit in school at all times, as they will not be able to participate in lessons without it. It is advisable to have to have a pair of black or navy jogging bottoms or leggings in their PE kit, especially for the colder months. A pair of old trainers is also essential because the pupils will take part in a range of outdoor activities, some of which will take place on the school field. Long hair will need to be tied back and earrings removed for your child’s safety during PE lessons. Please clearly label all items of PE kit. Thank you.

During this half term, Class 4’s PE lessons will take place on Wednesday afternoons.

Homework is sent out on a Friday and is due in the following Wednesday each week. Your child will receive a homework menu at the start if each term. They will then be able to select a piece of Maths and English to do each week alongside a project/topic based one. It would be much appreciated if you could encourage your child to complete their homework on a weekly basis as this will help them to consolidate the learning which they have completed in school.

Reading is really important and we want our children to develop a love of reading and books. Please try and read with your child every night and record when you have read with them in their reading books. This can be either their school book or a favourite book at home. We will be rewarding those who read regularly at home. The children will also be choosing a library book from school which they can take home to read.

Spelling lists have been placed in your child’s homework book. This is the statutory list for Year Three and Four. It is suggested that your child choose between 5 and 10 spellings a week to practice at home.

Maths will continue to be focussed on learning the multiplication facts for numbers up to 12 times 12. They will be tested every Friday in school. My Maths is also set on a regular basis and computers are available at lunch time if your child wished to complete these tasks in school.  

If you have any questions, queries or problems throughout the year then please feel free to make an appointment to meet me via the school office.  

Thank you for your support,

Mrs Hunt and Miss Calcutt
