PE
Our PE sessions will be on Monday afternoons and Thursday mornings. Children will bring their PE kits home every Friday for washing. Please can PE kits be returned to school for Monday morning.
 
Homework
During the academic year your child will have homework each week.  This is intended to help them consolidate the learning that takes place during lesson time.  It is important that you allow your children time at home to complete these tasks and where you can, talk to your child to ensure they understand the importance of them.  Each child has a zipped folder that contains their homework tasks in their CGP books. Please refer to the Weekly Home Learning page to see this week’s specific tasks.  Homework is given out on a Friday and needs to be returned the following Friday.  All children have the opportunity to take a reading book home so please ensure that your child reads as much as they can. One way of ensuring this, is to get your child to read aloud to you at home as much as possible. There is a list of suggested questions which can help with developing
comprehension skills and this can be found on the English page.
 
Spellings
Children now know their spelling groups (lions, leopards or giraffes). Spelling lists can be found on the ‘spelling sheets’ tab on our Year 4 webpage. Children will be tested every Friday and marks recorded in their homework diaries.
