Important information

At present, children should come to school wearing their PE kit on dedicated PE days.   Children should have a spare pair of shoes to wear if their trainers get wet or muddy.


Reading books are changed as and when children have finished reading them - we would expect children to change their books at least once a week. Please sign your child's diary to indicate when they have finished each book. Please ensure your child has their book bag in school everyday so that staff can monitor the frequency of their reading and sign it as appropriate.   Click here to view a suggested reading list for children in Year 3 & 4. 

Reading and Spelling -It is important to hear your child read every day.  Each week your child will have a new set of spellings to learn.  Please click here to view a range of spelling activity ideas to help your child learn.  In addition, please revise all 300 High Frequency words which are available here and the year 3/4 spellings which are here.

Children will have a reading comprehension homework, maths activities as well as needing to learn their 3, 4 and 8 multiplication tables alongside their 2, 5 and 10!     Click here for a range of activities to help children learn their multiplication and division facts and here for further information about what 'knowing your multiplication facts' means and how we recommend you help your child with this at home.
