Hindu Worship at Home


 Seurat and Pointilism


Seasonal Food





Please try to be at school for 8.40 am so that we can register and complete lunches on time each day. We do interventions during Assemblies please insure that your child is here in time as I wouldn't want them missing out!

Please' can I remind you that if your child is not in school before 8:50 am they will be registered with a late mark. If they arrive after 9am this will be recorded as an absence for the whole morning. 



Each term we ask for a small voluntary contribution of £2. This goes towards extra resources, such as ingredients for cooking and arts and crafts. As we are now a cashless school, this will need to be paid via Squid.





Everybody needs to have a full (and clearly labelled) PE kit in school all week. Please' could children have a pair of jogging bottoms and shorts in their bag? We do one session of PE inside and one session outside. Labelling uniform and kit with a biro is not sufficient as it very quickly wears or washes off. 

Our PE slots should be the same each week; however these do sometimes change,

so please ensure that they are in school each day of the week.




Remember that you are allowed to bring in a healthy snack for break times. This could be a piece of fruit or vegetables.





Please make sure you each have a water bottle so that you can regularly top it up with fresh water. Also, as many single used plastics are band, why not invest in a water bottle?


Do you have any questions?


If you have any questions on the topics or the National Curriculum objectives for Year 4 please do come in and speak to me and I will be happy to have a discussion with you.
