Important information

  • For the Spring term PE lessons are now every Monday and Tuesday. Please ensure your child has both indoor and outdoor kits with them on these days, including a outdoor jacket in case it is cold.
  • Homework is set on a Friday and is due in the following Wednesday.
  • Spellings are also set on a Friday and the children are tested the following Friday.
  • Please ensure that your child's reading records are signed every week. We expect the children to be reading at home at least three times a week. When you listen to your child read, please record it in their journals. Reading is so important for all aspects of children's learning and we really appreciate your support with this.


Arthur and the Golden Rope 


Our topic for Spring term 1 is all based around the book 'Arthur and the Golden rope'.  Our learning across the curriculum will link to the story, which will be revealed slowly. Therefore, we ask that you do not tell your child this half term's book or rush and buy the book. This is to ensure that learning at Ranelagh continues to be new and exciting and captivates children's learning. Arthur and the Golden Rope also links in with our history topic 'Vikings' and our Art project where the children will be doing some landscape work on 'Iceland' which is where the book is set. 


Your cooperation with helping your child learn their times tables is much appreciated. By the end of the year the expectations for the times tables your child needs to learn are below:

Year 3- 2,3,4,5,8 and 10's

Year 4- All times table number facts up to 12 x 12

The children have really been enjoying times table rockstars, it is a very enjoyable and valuable tool for children learning their times table facts and your support with them doing this at home has been acknowledged. 

Any questions or queries, don't hesitate to come and speak to me.
