Year 3/4

Welcome to Lower School


Homework in Years 3 and 4    

  • This year KS2 homework will consist of spellings and a homework grid.
  • We encourage children to log on to the rock stars Times Table regularly using their log on 
  • Spelling tests will be every Thursday. Each week your child should learn their spellings in preparation for the test.
  • Children are encouraged to complete an extra homework task from the homework grid, this covers many different subjects throughout the week. These are set on Fridays and due for the following Wednesday.
  • Every week we will look at the Reading Diary by adults in the class, but the diary needs to be in school everyday. A record of what the children have read needs to be added to the diary daily.

Children have the opportunity to complete homework in homework club. If homework is not handed in, children will be expected to do it during break time. Should you have any concerns about homework  please speak to your child’s teacher.

PE takes place twice throughout each week and can be on any day so pupils are expected to bring their kit in every day. Please ensure that children can take their jewellery out and they will need to tie their hair back if they have long hair.

Pupils who have not been assessed for their ability to swim 25 metres by the school will be expected to come swimming most Fridays throughout the school year. Pupils will need to bring a swimming hat. Girls will need to wear a whole-piece costume and boys should wear trunks (not board shorts).

Pupils who do not attend swimming are taught by our specialist Sports teacher Mrs Williams.
