Welcome to Year Voles' Class Page
Teachers: Miss Waites, Miss Hannon and Miss Pandor
Every Friday we have P.E. and Outdoor education, children are expected to come to school in their P.E. uniform.
Every Friday Year 4’s go swimming! Children need to bring their swimming kit and a towel. Children are also allowed to bring a healthy snack and a bottle of water.
Homework is given out on a Friday and should be returned to school by Tuesday Morning. Spellings will also be given out and children will have to learn the spellings for their spellings test.
Planners must be brought to school every day and signed by a parent or guardian at the end of the week, every week.
The new planners also include a reading record. We expect children to read at home at least 3 times a week! Once you’ve listened to your child, make a comment and sign it.
