Reminders

Arrival and Collection Times 

Arrival and Collection Times

We are continuing to use our one-way system to enter and exit school in September, entering and leaving via their external classroom door.

 

All children should arrive between 8.45am – 8.55am.

Children in Year R, 1,3, 5 and 6 should be collected at 3.25pm

Children in Year 2 and 4 should be collected at 3.20pm.

 

Breakfast Club & After School Club -  Children in Year R, 1 to 6 should arrive as normal and be taken to Breakfast Club room. They will be taken to their classroom ready for lessons. Breakfast Club will be open from 7.45am. After School Club will be open until 5.45pm. 

 

Stationery - It would be great if you could provide your child with a pencil case containing the following equipment: a ruler, glue stick, HB pencil and pencil sharpener, a fibre tipped writing pen (if your child has their handwriting licence), a set of colouring pencils, two different coloured highlighter pens and a green and purple biro. It would be extremely helpful if the pencil case was relatively small as space on tables and trays is limited. We will provide this equipment where required. 

 

P.E. - 

Children in Class 4 will need to bring their P.E. Kit into school on Monday and Thursday. P.E. kits should consist of navy shorts/ jogging bottoms, a house-coloured t-shirt and trainers.

Spellings - Every Friday your child will be taught a new spelling rule to practise during the week, ready for a spelling test on the following Friday. Please encourage your child to spend time at home practising these spellings using 'Look, say, cover, write, check' in the Spelling Homework Booklets, as well as discussing the spelling rule and possibly finding exceptions to the rule as an 'above and beyond' challenge. Please ensure these Spelling Booklets are kept in school bags

 

Reading - Please record when you hear your child read in their yellow 'Reading Record Book'. If your child is a fluent reader, who reads independently, please encourage them to make a record each time they read for 15 minutes or more and sign alongside.  These books need to be in school every day. 

English

In Year 4 children continue to learn to write different types of texts and we use model texts to highlight the key features of these texts before children create their own versions. 

The table below highlights the text types and texts that we are learning in Year 4.
