Important Reminders

PE

- Our PE days are Wednesday and Friday. Children are expected to come to school in their PE kits on these days. They do not need to bring their school uniform, they can wear their PE kit for the duration of the day. As outdoor PE is likely, long sleeved trousers and a hoodie/jacket is strongly advised as the weather gets colder. Also, jewellery is not permitted during PE and all long hair should be tied up. 

 

Learning at home

-Homework and spellings

Spellings will be given out every Friday and a spelling test at school will take place the following Friday.

Times tables practice will be given out every Friday and a test will at school will take place the following Friday.

Along with the spellings, a homework task will be given out on a Friday but is expected to be handed in by the following Wednesday to allow time for their work to be looked at. This homework task will alternate between a maths, English or topic based task.

 

- TT Rockstars at least 3 times per week (at least 10 minutes each time).

This is extremely important in improving their times tables knowledge and great practice for the national times table test that every year 4 will be taking in the Summer term.. The website to access this is:

https://ttrockstars.com/

Children should be aware of their logins for this - if unsure please contact the class teacher.

 

- Reading at least 3 times per week.

This should be recorded in their reading journals - either by the children or by parents/guardians. The teacher will check these on a Friday - children will have them open on their desks to reduce contact.

We use 'Accelerated Reader' where the children read their book and then quiz online. If children finish their books at home, they can access the quiz by following the link below. Children will then be given the opportunity to change their books the next day in school.

Spring 2

 

Our third book for this academic year is 'Iron Man' by Ted Hughes.

 

"The Iron Man is a story so gripping that when you begin to read it aloud, everyone stops to listen, young children and old people alike. And once you know it, you never forget it. A classic is something utterly strange and original, and yet as deeply familiar and necessary as your own hands. The Iron Man is like no other story in the world, and fifty years after its first publication, we need it as much as ever." Philip Pullman
