Weekly Documents 


Please can children remember to bring in their water bottles, reading books and Reading for Pleasure books to school every day please.  As the weather still has a tendency to be cold and wet, please can children ensure that they have a coat in school every day too. Also, please can we ask that your child's name is on any of their clothing/possessions as this makes it so much easier when we are trying to reunite lost items with their owner.   


PE - In 4HT our PE sessions are on Monday and Friday

In 4F our PE sessions are on Tuesday and Thursday 


French with Madame Evans is on Thursday mornings 


Homework - Children are expected to read to someone at home every day (the focus is not to read an entire book in an evening, but rather a couple of pages and to take the time to discuss what has been read to aid comprehension of the text), to practise their weekly spellings, times tables and to discuss the reading/writing task for the week. And remember homework results in dojo points!
