Class 4

smiley Welcome to Class 4! smiley

 

Our teacher is Miss Gillin.

Our teaching assistants are the wonderful Mrs Hunter and Mrs Rogers.

 

We have PE with Mr Hawthorne on a Monday and we have gymnastics on a Thursday.  

Please ensure that PE kits are in school and have your child's name clearly labelled on every item.

 

Homework, home reading and spellings

 

Please ensure your child has their reading folder in school every day.

 

Your child will have a spelling test every Wednesday. Homework folders and spelling diaries must be handed in by Wednesday so we can update them with their latest test score and new spellings. 

 

Your child's spelling test scores can be found on each spelling list. If the spelling diary has not been handed in, we are unable to record their attained scores and your child's new spellings will be given on a separate piece of paper.

 

We remind the children every morning to take their reading folders, homework folders and any letters or forms out of their bag. However, we are still finding that things are being left in bags. Please can you remind your child that these must be handed in.

 

Every Thursday your child will receive the new set of spellings. Your child may also receive a piece of handwriting practice or a piece of maths homework set on MyMaths.
