Dates for your Diary


7.9.20 In-service Day

8.9.20 First day back to school




Welcome to class 8! 


What a strange time we have had recently! The world is a different place than a few months ago, and at school we know that you may have some worries and anxieties about returning full time. But don't worry! We will do our very best to make the transition as simple and smooth as possible! We are all in this together and we need to learn on and support one another.


In class 8 we will be working very hard throughout the year to consolidate all of our previous learning, push ourselves to reach our goals and have lots of fun learning new things!  Each morning we will start with the register and 'Active in 5', this will be followed by reading/spellings/SPAG/handwriting tasks. Our first lesson will usually be English followed by maths after break time. Afternoons will begin with times table practice then topic lessons. 

Our days will be jam-packed but full of opportunities for learning, reflecting and developing our lovely squishy brains!


For PE sessions on Wednesdays, remember your full PE kits (plain white t-shirt, plain/dark short/leggings/pants and trainers or plimsolls). These kits must be taken home regularly to be washed and earrings and watches must be removed.

Homework is given out on Wednesdays and usually consists of a mymaths task or times tables rockstars and weekly spellings. It must be returned no later than the following Tuesday. On occasion, children may also bring any unfinished work home to complete. Children will have several opportunities between homework being assigned and being due to attend homework club if they wish.


Children are asked to bring reading books into school every day. Children who bring in reading books everyday will have more opportunities to read in school, change their books and progress through the levels. We also ask that as parents, you encourage daily reading at home with your children. After school clubs and weekly helpers will also be organised to provide extra reading opportunities and to encourage a positive attitude towards reading. In year 4 every child is read with at least twice, with Reading Champions providing extra opportunities for reading.
