Class Information

Spellings - Spellings are posted onto class dojo and our class page and in a paper copy. Spelling tests take place on a Monday. 

P.E - Everyone needs to come to school in PE kit on Monday and Thursday.                 

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 Class 3/4 is focused around reading at home, spellings and multiplication practice. Children can access Times Tables Rockstars to do this, all have a login. Additional homework is sometimes posted on Class Dojo and children can complete this if they would like. This term we are going to post homework on class story.
