Home Learning may consist of more than one piece of English and Maths.


Reading Books

All children have a reading book and a reading record. Year 4 children read daily for at least 15 minutes. We ask parents/carers to sign their name daily and write any comments each time you listen to your child read, and also when they have completed their book. When they have finished reading their book, pupils are able to change them when they arrive at school each morning. The class teacher and assistant check the reading records daily. 



Children have PE on Tuesdays and Thursdays with Mr. Hill. Please ensure children wear their PE kits all day in school on these days. No jewellery is permitted.


Recorder Lessons 

This year the children will have weekly recorder lessons. These lessons will be taught by a music teacher from the  Kingston Music Service. 


Finally, thank you for all the hard work you do at home to make your child's education a success!
