Welcome to Year Three and Four

Class teachers: Miss K. Dawson & Mrs C. Chadwick.

We are looking forward to working with you to support your child as they enter Year 3 & 4. We have high hopes and high expectations of all the children, both for their behaviour and for their attitude to learning.


Our classroom is a positive working environment where praise and encouragement are used to motivate and support all the children. They love to receive acknowledgement for their hard work and best behaviour. Throughout the year, your children will be challenged to be the best they can be and are encouraged to take part in every aspect of school life.


If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to speak to us.


Reading Books.

Children need to bring their reading book and record into school each day. It is important that they are heard read at home 4 times a week to help improve their understanding of more challenging vocabulary when it is used in a different context.


The children will be given words from the year 3 & 4 statutory spelling lists to learn each week. They will be tested on a Friday each week. Please help your child to learn them.


On a weekly basis, your child will receive a piece of Maths and English work. It will be given out on a Thursday and it is expected to be completed and handed in on Tuesday the following week. Please help your child to complete the homework and support them where possible.


Our P.E day is a Wednesday afternoon. Please ensure that the correct kits are in school because they may well be needed for after-school clubs. Hair that is shoulder length or longer must be tied up for safety reasons.
