In Lower Key Stage Two, we expect children to read 5 times a week and bring their reading book into school every day. Weekly spellings will be given out on a Monday to be assessed on the Friday of that week. Your class teacher will also provide a weekly Seesaw task relating to any area of the curriculum. For example, children may be expected to complete an activity relating to learning in Arts, Humanities, R.E, Spanish, Science and Wellbeing. The tasks will vary each week. Please check your child's Seesaw page for more details. 

At the end of Year 4, all children are assessed on their times table facts. You can find more information here. We expect children to be practicing their times table on TTRockstars at least twice a week. Their login details should be glued in their Reading Record.


Our P.E. days are:

3D & 3S - Monday and Wednesday

3T - Monday and Thursday

A gentle reminder that our school P.E. kit is a plain white t-shirt, black shorts and black pumps or trainers for outdoor sports, without visible branding.  Children can come to school dressed in their PE kit, as long as it is the proper P.E. uniform.  Otherwise, they will need to bring it in a separate bag.

Water bottles and snacks

Don't forget to bring a water bottle to school each day - it is important for children to stay hydrated throughout the day. Please label bottles and refill them each day.

Children are welcome to bring a healthy snack such as fruit and vegetables to school each day for snack time. Breadsticks and milk can be purchased at the start of each half-term (please speak to the school office about this).


This half term we will be exploring poetry and the children will be creating their own senses poem about the beach. We will be reading the book Coming to England and writing a letter recounting the events in the story. We will develop our basic writing skills including the use of expanded noun phrases, conjunctions and prepositions.

Get on TTrockstars!  If you want to be the best, you have to practise!
