PE Days
 
Our PE days on Tuesday (swimming) and Thursday, but please ensure your child has the correct PE kit in school every day.  During the summer term we may be doing extra PE sessions as there are many events.
 
Home Learning
 
Home learning is set on a Friday and due back the following Wednesday. We set English and Maths, with the expectation that children will also be learning spellings from their Year 3 and 4 spelling list using their spellings zappers. Over holidays, the children may be set more practical tasks linked to their topic. The children are also expected to read for at least 20 minutes a day, and then reflect on their reading in their own reading diaries.  You can find the home learning task for each week on our Summer term page.

Spellings
 
Please support and encourage your child to learn their Year 3 and 4 spellings. A list of the spellings can be downloaded below. There is also a copy of the Year 1 and 2 words to support consolidation of their knowledge. There is also a range of strategies to support the learning of these (please see below).
 
Thank you for your support in your child's learning :)
Word Activities to have fun with at home
 
We have added some fun word activities to have a go with your child at home.These games can be played in a spare 5 minutes. They are specifically developed to make some of the skills of writing explicit. The essential idea is to play the game again and again so that the children become ‘fluent’ at it and really develop the skills that lie behind it. Skills covered are: developing vocabulary, usual words in unusual combinations, expanding an idea and developing the imagination. 
Support and advice for parents
