We have been very busy settling into our new Year 4 classes. The children are getting to know their teachers and are learning our routines. We have started the year by focussing on the school rules and developing our attitudes to learning. We are also helping the children to develop their independence. All of the children have been issued with library books and are able to go to the library on Wednesday mornings as well as at lunchtimes and after school. The children should have brought their homework books home and we are very pleased with some of the work we have seen so far. As well as reading regularly and completing the homework options, the children should be practising their individual spellings and times tables. These are reviewed regularly over the term. The children have enjoyed taking part in their ‘Active Minutes’ at school as well as telling us what they do outside of school. PE days are on Monday and Wednesday plus we have Kids Marathon on a Friday. It is important that all children have their full PE kits in school every day. We will be updating our blog regularly to keep you informed about what we have been doing.
