Important Reminders


P.E for Year 4 is on a Thursday. Please send your child into school in their P.E kit on this day. 


Children should bring a named water bottle into school everyday. These will be refilled when necessary during the day.


Homework - Timetables are sent home on a Friday, to be returned by Wednesday. Spellings are also sent home on Friday and will be tested on Wednesday. Please help your child practise these at home. Children will be awarded house points for these. 


Please read with your child at least 3 times per week. Reading with your child also provides an ideal opportunity to talk to about what they are reading and to extend their vocabulary by discussing the new words they have encountered.
