This term we will be covering cricket and handball skills, and we hope to use the outdoor space as long as the weather is fine!
Home Learning
This will be sent home on a Friday to be returned the following Tuesday.  Please ensure that homework is completed to a high standard of presentation and is given in on time.  Thank you.
Please listen to your child read at least 5 times each week and record this on their home learning sheet.  Please discuss their reading with them and encourage them to answer questions about what they have read.
Please keep in touch with the year 4 team, to inform us of anything your child has done in their spare time e.g. dance shows, gymnastics awards, etc. We love to hear about our children’s hobbies and achievements outside of school!

Thank you again for your continued support. We look forward to an exciting and busy Spring Term.
