Just a couple of reminders: Swimming & P.E. are on Mondays (PLEASE NOTE – P.E. is a compulsory part of the curriculum (all children must take part) and for Health and Safety reasons the full P.E. kit must be worn (to avoid confusion please ensure that your child knows his/her PE kit and that everything is clearly labelled).  Please ensure that all jewellery has been removed on the day and that long hair is tied back.
 
Grab a book - Now is definitely the time to start reading with your child, to get ready for Year 5. Not only will it help with the child’s comprehension of text but also widen their vocabulary which is needed to progress to the next level of expected writing styles. Reading books and diaries must be returned to school each day so that you child can read their book during our silent reading sessions. Please ensure that all school books are being returned to school asap.
 

Homework
There has been no change: Homework goes out on Fridays and should be returned on Mondays.  However, some children have not yet completed one set of homework and as a result have struggled with the learning step that followed. Remember, the work is at your child’s level. Homework is like a building block that is used to progress to our next step of learning.
 
The children and I would like to invite you to come and spend a morning with Year 4. We are all happy to have you, just come and see me to arrange a day.
 
Hope to see you in class,
 
Mrs Bourne
