Please do make sure that the children have glue sticks and a handwriting pen (if they have a pen licence) in school every day. Pencil cases need to be a suitable size so that they can fit in the children's drawers in the classroom.
P.E. is taught on a Wednesday and Friday afternoon. Please do make sure kits are in every day in the event of timetable changes.
Just a reminder that children are responsible for looking after their own belongings, which may include; pencil cases, money, toys and books. Pupils are encouraged to be as independent as possible.

NEW 12/7/19 - Miss Verran’s Maths Class
The children will be given homework next week to take home to complete over the summer break.
Our current topic is Position and Direction.
In Oak class Maths we complete mini times table tests every Wednesday. The children in this class will know which times table they should focus on each week. However, we do encourage that pupils practise all of their times tables at home every week. They could use worksheets (click for link) to help them practise.
When pupils have correctly answered 20 questions (mixed multiplication and division) in 2 minutes they will move onto the next times table on the ladder.
Year 4 Times Table Test
