What should your child have with them each day?
It’s important that your child comes fully equipped to school and is ready for all of their school activities. Children in Years 3 and 4 should have these essentials:
- 30cm ruler
- Homework diary (signed), reading book and any other homework
- Healthy break/packed lunch/dinner money
- Any notes that have been sent home, returned and signed
- In Year 3 children will go home at 3pm on Mondays and Tuesdays. On Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays their home time will be at 2pm. Year 4 children will stay until 3pm every day.
- All items of clothing and PE shoes should be clearly labelled with your child’s name.
- Miss Campbell/Mr Moore and Miss Overend’s children only require a change of shoes for PE lessons. Your child should keep these in school in a clearly labelled bag. Miss Alexander's Year 4 children should have a fresh t-shirt, shorts/tracksuit bottoms and trainers.
- If your child wishes to take toast (10p) or pancakes (15p) for break, please try to send the correct money for the week on a Monday morning.
- We see homework as an important part of your child’s development. Every child has a homework diary which will let you see clearly the homework your child has.
- Finally, please ensure that your child brings a bottle of water to school each day as learning is thirsty work. Cups are not advisable to prevent spillages and juice is only allowed at break and lunch.

Our current topic in Year 3 and 4 is Fire. The children have been really busy during activity based learning making fire models from Lego and sequencing events at the cut and stick table. The children have also been learning how to co-operate and share through a range of classic games.
We created forest fire pictures using mixed media. We used red, orange and yellow paint to create the fire in the background and used black oil pastels to draw the burnt trees.
Year 4 enjoy playing Maths games on the ipads.
Do you like the pictures that year 3 and 4 created using Purple Mash on the ipads?
Year 3 and 4 did a litter pick around school today. They picked up all the litter we found and put it in the bin. They did a great job!
Take a loook at some photos of children in Miss Overend’s class participating in a fun filled NSPCC sponsored physical challenge.
