Important Information

Timings

  • Year 4 arrive at the side gate beyond the pedestrian entrance and drive-in gate.
  • Please arrive punctually at 8.30
  • Children should be supervised until they enter the school building
  • Children should be collected at 3.00pm at the same side gate

 

Belongings

Please send children in with the following:

  • A coat – this can be a warm coat or rain jacket
  • Healthy packed lunch, water bottle and healthy snack – 1 sweet treat is enough with lunch. We prefer children to fill their water bottles before lunch and we ask that sugary drinks are avoided. Fizzy drinks should not be brought in at all.
  • Reading record (filled in each day) and reading book
  • Children should wear PE kit on PE days – please see separate section
  • Specialist equipment requested by an adult for that day e.g. musical instrument

Please don’t send children to school with the following:

  • Pencil cases or any other stationary – school will provide this
  • Anything other than water in a child’s water bottle. This includes squash.
  • Unnecessary items e.g. fluffy keyrings, toys or balls
  • Overly large bags – we have small lockers and some bags will not fit into them

 

PE Kit

  • Children should wear their full PE kits for the full day on PE days.
  • Children can wear shorts, T shirts and trainers or plimsols.
  • As weather cools down, they can wear tracksuits, jogging bottoms, leggings and sports jumpers.
  • If children are partaking in outdoor PE, they can bring another pair of socks and shoes as their feet may become wet or muddy.
  • We remind parents that we enjoy outdoor learning in all weathers and children should be prepared for this.

English

 

Spellings

Children have access to their Spelling Shed logins and will be set spelling tasks based around the words and sounds that the children are looking at in lessons.

 

Reading

We encourage reading to take place at least 5 times a week. Whilst this sounds like a lot, children are reading all of the time. We ask for your support in logging it in their reading records which they should bring to school daily.

 

Handwriting

We follow the Letterjoin handwriting program. It develops a cursive handwriting style. Children have login details for this and it would be great if this could be practised at home.
