Year 3/4


Mrs Woodruffe, Mrs Bodnar, Mrs Brown, Mr Smith and Mrs Garbutt would like to extend a warm welcome to Year 3/4's area.



Spelling homework is handed out every Monday.  This is expected to be completed for ten minutes every day using the strategies in the front of their homework book. They are also expected to practice their times tables using TTRockstars. If you have any problems please see your child's class teacher on the Monday or Tuesday.




We would like the children to read every day. Sometimes the children get time in class to read first thing in the morning or just after lunch but this isn't always the case.  Please encourage your child to spend some time reading at home, it will soon have a positive impact on their writing.  It is important that your child records their reading in their Reading Record as this allows the class teachers to monitor their reading. The Reading Records are checked by class teachers on a regular basis.  Your child does not have to read a school reading book, but can choose any age appropriate reading material. If you would like advice about this, please see your child's class teacher.


Indoor PE 


Citrine's Indoor PE session is on a Monday and Turquoise and Zircon have their Indoor PE session on a Tuesday or Thursday depending on which day they have outdoor P.E. Carnelian have indoor P.E. on a Monday afternoon.. 


Children must have shorts and t-shirt and must not be wearing earrings. Long hair needs to be tied back for PE lessons.


Outdoor PE


All the classes will be doing Outdoor PE either on a Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday afternoons on a rotation basis.  


As well as the kit required for Indoor PE, the children should also have warm outdoor clothing such as tracksuit top and bottoms and separate outdoor shoes. We have found that plimsolls are not suitable for wearing on the field as they have poor grip.  


Please can ALL clothing be named.
