Bug Club: (your child will have been given an access code)





PE for this term will take place on Mondays and Fridays. Monday sessions will be guided by coaches from Next Level Sport. We ask that children come dressed in PE kits on these days. 

PE kits consist of: 

- Plain white top

- Black shorts or joggers (no leggings)

- Black hoodie

- Trainers



Reading & Bug Club

In Key Stage 2, we ask that the children read to someone at home every day for 5 minutes. The reading may consist of a variety of texts; from novels, to recipes, newspapers and even football programmes! Remember to sign and comment your child’s reading.

Don’t forget reading on Bug Club also counts as home reading! Bug Club puts more emphasis on comprehension skills as, ultimately,  this is what children are assessed against at the end of Key Stage 2. The children have to answer the questions, by clicking the little bugs, to score points which they can spend in the shop.

Guided Reading will happen every day for KS2. 

Please record any home reads using the boomreader app.

Reading is an essential area where practice at home really pays off!


Spellings Homework

Each week children will be given 10 spellings to learn. These may be to practise a particular spelling rule or will come from the Year 3/4 statutory spellings list. Spelling tests will take place every Friday.


Times Tables 

Please can you encourage your child to learn their times tables and their inverses. They have all received a log in for Times Tables Rock Stars. Please log on to to access their personal page. 

You can also look at the following websites for times tables help:

All Year 4 children will have their multiplication skills formally tested from 2020. Please check here for more information about the multiplication test. 

Break and Snack 

Year 3/4 break time is at 10.10 -10:25.

Children can bring in their own healthy snack (fruit, vegetables). 

Children need to bring their water bottle into the classroom everyday which can be used throughout the day.
