Reminders for Autumn Term 2021

Arrival and Collection Times 

Children should use the one-way system to enter and exit school in September, entering and leaving via their external classroom door.

 

Children in Year R, 2 and 4 are expected to arrive between 8.45am – 8.55am and be collected between 3.15pm and 3.25pm

Children in Year 1,3, 5 and 6 are expected to arrive between 8.50am -9.00am and be collected between 3.20pm and 3.30pm

Where siblings are in classes with different arrival and collection times, they should arrive at 8.50am and 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 their P.E. kits on Monday and Thursday. P.E. kits should consist of jogging bottoms, shorts, a house-coloured t-shirt, jumper (or sweatshirt) and trainers. 

 

ROMAN DAY Our dressing up Roman Day is Wednesday 15th September. Children are invited to come dressed in some kind of Roman Costume. 

 

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.
