P.E for 2B is on a Monday afternoon and Tuesday morning. Please can you ensure your child has a suitable outdoor kit and shoes in school as PE will take place outside, either on the field or the MUGA. Please make sure ALL P.E kit is labelled and studded earrings are either removed or tape is brought in to cover them safely. PE kits will be sent home for washing every Friday afternoon and will need bringing back to school the following Monday.
Reading at home
Please read at home with your child at least 3 times a week- it really makes a difference! (Green Cards and a stamp on the reading challenge are rewarded every Friday morning for that week and we count weeks from Friday to Friday to include the weekend)
Children in Year 3 and 4 are set weekly spellings to practise at home. Spelling books are sent home with the children to help them practise whilst at home. We also practise spellings in class.
Each week on a Friday, children will take part in a multiplication maths challenge. Across the school, the children are working on a progressive new system which involves practising old times tables as well as introducing new ones. The children will begin on Bronze, and once they score full marks on all 40 questions involving multiplication and division, they will move onto Silver, and so on. Please see the attachments below to see the structure of the times tables tests your child will be learning.
