Year 4

Please remember we will be swimming every Monday now until Christmas.


Dear Parents/Carers - Welcome Back!

In order to try to reduce the amount of equipment moving between school and home on a daily basis we will be trialling the following;


Reading books will be sent home on a Monday to be read and kept at home until Friday. Please share the book with your child and make comments in their reading record as usual. Return the book and reading record to school on the following Friday so that books can be kept over the weekend in school to be re-used on Monday. Children will choose a book from class to read in school as well as taking part in guided reading sessions with their teacher through the week. 


Homework will be given out for maths and english, maths will be sent home on a Friday to be handed in the following Thursday, english will be handed out on Tuesday to be handed in the following Monday. The children will have a folder to keep these in.


P.E. kits should be worn to school on the days that we have P.E. Y4 will have P.E. on Thursday and from Monday 14th September we will be going swimming each week so children will wear swimming costume and P.E. kit on Mondays too. Further information about swimming arrangements will be sent before we start.


We are trying to adapt our usual practises to fit the current situation and it may not always go to plan. It may be that we will need to make further changes at a later date. Thank you for your continued help and support,

Mrs Fort and Miss Evans
