Learning Environment

Our classrooms are designed to encourage and support learning. Look out for the cosy reading corner, Growth Mindset displays and encouraging behaviour chart. Keep a look out for your work being put on display! Will it make the Star work wall?



This year the children will receive an English writing or spelling task alongside a maths task every Friday to be completed for the following Friday. Please continue to learn the Year 3/4 spellings as the children will be tested termly. Click here for a copy of those Year 3/4 words.

Extra Information

Children should be reading to an adult at least three times a week. Please record in your child’s reading record book when they have done this! Just a quick comment or signature will be fine. As they become more independent in their reading, they are encouraged to write their own comment.

We will continue to have a weekly Buzz Time challenge. As they achieve each stage they shall receive a certificate.


P.E will be on a Monday and a Wednesday. The children are expected to have their P.E kits in every Monday along with suitable shoes and hair ties for long hair.
