Key Messages


  • School planners will be checked and signed weekly. Children are expected to bring planners into school each day and take them home each day so reading and any other notes can be made in the planner, at school and at home. Our minimum expectation is that children read for at least 10 minutes, 3 days a week. Please listen and read to your child as often as possible.

Times Tables:

  • We will be continuing our focus on times tables and the children should try to use Times Table Rockstars regularly at home to help recall their times tables. We also have the app, Numbots which supports children's recall of addition and subtraction facts.


  • Spellings will be sent home on a Monday and will be tested every Friday. The statutory spelling list for Years 3 and 4 can be found at the back of your child's school planner so regular practise of these words would be helpful.  


  • Homework will be set on a Friday and this should be returned by the following Wednesday. Homework will alternate between a Maths or an English activity linked to the unit of work they are covering in class so they should be able to complete the activity independently. 


  • The children will have indoor PE on a Monday. Children should have a full kit in school throughout the week as although we do have set days for these sessions, they may occasionally change. They can be left in school and will be sent home at the end of each half term.
  • We will continue to go swimming on a Friday until the end of the school year, leaving at approximately 9:30am.  Please make sure your child brings their swimming kit every week.
