PE Day is a Monday. Please come to school wearing a clean PE kit and trainers as we will be using the field.

 

Reading Record day is a Thursday. Children can write what they have read but this must still be signed by an adult please.

 

Times Table test day is a Friday. You can support your child by practising Times Tables at home. By the end of Year 4, children are required to know all their tables up to 12X12 and will have a formal test in June. Here are some websites you can use to help.
