Day-to-day information about Rabbits Class.
For Games (now on a Wednesday), when the weather is warm, you need to wear black shorts and the green school PE tee-shirt and a pair of trainers. As it gets colder you can wear tracksuit trousers and gloves. All of your kit should be named. If you wear earrings, you also need to wear tape to cover them or be able to remove them yourself. If you cannot do this, it might be wise not to wear them on Mondays. Thank you for your cooperation with this matter.
You will need you indoor PE kit on Fridays. The green tee-shirt and black shorts should be worn.
You need to read to an adult at home at least 3 times a week. Each read is worth 2 team points for your house. Reading records will be collected in and checked on a Monday...if you haven't read at home, you will need to stay in at playtime and read to one of us. As you are Year 4 now, we expect you to fill in your diary as to what you have read, what you enjoyed, what happened etc. and then ask an adult to sign it for you.
Like last term, we will be issuing you with the POWer home learning challenge. You will need to earn 5 POWer points (in total from any of the activities) from the tasks given which link directly to our Transport topic. (Please see the link on the Year 3/4 page). This homework will be due in on Monday 5th February. Please do not bring it in before as we are so short of space.
We will still be making regular use of the RM easimaths and j2e.com programs. Links are on the Year 3/4 page. Please complete these reguallry not just when we ask you to!
We will still occasionally (usually fortnightly) send home a traditional spelling list for you to learn. Why not ask someone at home to help you - it'll be more fun and you'll be more successful. You can also log on to Spellodrome with your unique password to enjoy learning your spellings. Links are on the Year 3/4 page.
