Things you need to know:
The children will be given a spelling homework folder. This will contain the list of the spellings that they will be learning for the whole of the half term. Each week the children will be given the specific spellings that they will be tested on in a grid format with activities linked to those spellings. Spellings will be given out on a Monday. The children will be tested on a Friday. If you loose your spelling homework then you will now be able to download this terms from our web page!
It is expected that the children will complete the grid and activities and bring their folders back into school EVERY Friday
Children will receive a stamp each week for a completed spelling/activity grid. When they have collected 12 stamps they get a reward. Those children who fail to bring their folders into school and/or do not complete their spellings will have to learn them during a playtime.
Children will have 2 weeks to complete their learning logs. The children will have a choice of tasks to complete. It is expected that the children will complete their learning log and hand them in on the date given.
Your child will be given a reading book and a reading record. It is expected that your child reads for 20 minutes every night. Their reading record book will need to be completed so that parents/carers and teachers can monitor progress. Children will be rewarded with a raffle ticket for reading 5 times per week. Both these books need to be in school everyday.
Your child is responsible for their own belongings. It is vital that their jumpers, coats, water bottles and PE kits are CLEARLY LABELLED and in school everyday.
We read this book in class. Please read our blogs. We have written our own Black Book of Colours

Visit from Daxa
On Tuesday 1st November Year 3 and 4 had a visit from Daxa. She talked to us about the Hindu festival Diwali. We looked at pictures and had the opportunity to ask Daxa questions about her faith.
After listening to Daxa we listened to music and learned a dance using sticks.
