 I am super excited about this year and the journey that we will go on together as a class. 

It is great to see the children eager to learn and we have a great year ahead of us

We have two fantastic teaching assistants in our class this year: Miss Gunn and Miss Kuiper.

Class Messages

Coats
Please ensure that your child always comes into school with a coat, especially with the weather getting colder.

Water bottles
Please provide your child with a water bottle every day. This is as well as a drink in their lunch box if they are having a packed lunch.

PE
We have PE twice during the school week - on Monday and Thursday. All children must have their PE kit in school every day to ensure that they can participate. We will continue to do PE outside as often as possible so please provide your child with appropriate clothing eg: tracksuit and trainers. Daps are not suitable footwear for the field and outside playground, especially in wet weather. 
Children need to have earrings covered by micropore tape and hair tied back.  You must provide tape for your child if they wear earrings in school.

Please also ensure that children have their name in each part of their kit! If your child is unable to take part in PE due to illness or injury, please notify me in writing including the reason for non-participation.
 

Uniform                                                                                                                                                                                                               

Please have your child's name in all of their clothes and belongings! Please make sure that your child comes to school in full uniform, unless you have been made aware of a theme day or event. 

Reading
Children are expected to read five times a week at home and this needs to be recorded in their reading record book. Due to Covid regulations, books will only be changed on a Wednesday and Friday. 

Homework 

Homework is set on Wednesday and due in on the following Monday. This is a piece of maths and English; however the English work may be linked to topic or other subjects.

Spellings
The children will have 15 spellings from the spelling pattern given out plus the 5 high frequency words taken from the national curriculum year 3/4 list. Spellings are given out on Monday and tested on the following Monday. The new spellings will be stuck in the front of their yellow books and the children will be tested in the back of these books. 

Handwriting
Below is an example of the cursive script we use in school, If you would like to practice at home please feel free.
