Useful Class Information

You may find the following information useful:

  • PE will take place on Wednesday morning and Friday afternoons. It is advised that children bring their PE kit into school on Monday and leave it in their locker all week, before taking it home on Friday to be washed for the following week. A PE kit must include a light blue t-shirt (with the school logo,) royal blue shorts and trainers or plimsols suitable for indoor use.
  • In Year 4 Homework will be given out the children on Friday each week and will need to be returned to school on Wednesday the following week. If children are having difficulty with their homework they can bring it in to school with them on Monday or Tuesday and Mr Bragg and Mrs Crichton will help them with this. 
  • We encourage children to read every day with the aim of achieving 'Strive for Five' rewards each week. Every time that children read and get their reading record signed by an adult, they will revieve a raffle ticked for our prize draw - which takes place in the school assembly on Friday.
  • If your child wishes to have snack at break times they will need to bring £1 with them on Monday and give this to their class teacher.

Our Class Promise

On our very first day in Year 4, we worked as a class collaboratively to write our 'Class Promise.' We discussed the kind of class that we would all like to be part of this year and put everyone's ideas together. After writing our promise, we went into the Sports Hall and promised our peers that we would follow the positive conduct outlined. To consolidate this even further we all signed our names in agreement.   

Autumn Term

Getting Active in the Morning
We have been working to become more active, aiming to do more physical activity both at school and outside school. To get our brains ready for learning in the mornings, we use 'Cybercoach' and other activities such as running and star jumps to help waken us up, raise our heart rate and get increased oxygen needed for learning circulating around our bodies.
