Key information

To promote independence we expect children to enter the classroom independently.  If you need to speak to the Class Teacher, please leave a message via Class Dojo. 

Spellings - Spellings are posted onto class dojo and our class page and in a paper copy. Spelling tests days are shared on Dojo. 

P.E - Days of the week are shared on class Dojo pages.            

Swimming (Year 4) - Swimming will be on Thursday afternoon. The children will need swimwear and a towel in a bag. Earrings must be taken out before. 

Reading BooksReading books need to be taken home every night and when possible children should read aloud for at least ten minutes. Parents or carers are encouraged to record this in their children's reading record, which helps us decide when books can be changed. When they have read three times, they will move along the reading race board. This encourages reading at home. 

Homework - Homework in years 3 and 4 is focused around reading at home, spellings and multiplication practice. All children in Key Stage 2 have access to Times Tables Rockstars. If you need a reminder of your child's login then please contact the class teacher. Additional homework is sometimes posted on Class Dojo and children can complete this if they would like.
