Weekly Routines

P.E

We have P.E every Monday and Friday. We have access to both the hall and the MUGA for our P.E session meaning we can carry on teaching P.E regardless of the weather. Children should come to school dressed in their P.E kit. It is recommended that during the winter months, children wear jogging bottoms and bring a school jumper/fleece to wear for outdoor PE on Mondays. On Fridays, children need to wear shorts, as this is indoor PE.

Water Bottles

Children need to bring their water bottle into school every morning.

Reading Books

Reading Books will be issued home every Tuesday and Thursday for you to share and enjoy daily with your child(ren). Reading records must be signed and dated in order for us to change books. Please note, any books not signed, will not be changed. A record of all books issued, including when changed, is kept to help us monitor reading progression.

Homework

Homework will be issued on a weekly basis.

Spellings – 5 per week. These will be given every Friday. The children will be tested on their spellings on the following Friday and 5 new spellings will be given to learn.

Maths homework – This will be given every Tuesday and needs to be returned by Friday of the same week.

English – This will be given every Friday and needs to be returned by the following Tuesday.

At the end of year 4, the children are expected to know all of their times tables. This includes the 10’s, 5’s, 2’s, 3’s, 6’s, 4’s, 8’s, 7’s and 9’s. The children will be tested on these so they need to learn them in order first and then be able to answer random questions on a particular times table e.g. 9 x 10, 7 x 10, 11 x 10, 4 x 10 etc.

They will be given times tables to learn at home, as well as practising these in school.
