Reading: children are expected to read every week night and for this to be logged in their reading diaries. 

Spellings: Will be put on the class page every Friday and tested the following Friday.

Times tables tests will be every Friday - the children are aware of which times table they are focusing on.

Please ensure that your child’s reading journal is in school on a daily basis as this will be checked.

If your child has not had the opportunity to read with an adult at home, we will ensure this happens at school during play time.

Weekly Update -  8th December


Year 4 have been busy practicing for their Christmas play and are very much looking forward to showing everyone next week. In English, it has been poetry week this week where we have looked at kennings and list poems. The children have really enjoyed writing these and guessing what each other was writing about. 



Over the next two weeks, we will be recapping words that have been previously already been sent out in preparation for our big end of term spelling test on the 8th December.
