Welcome to Maple class

Reading

Reading continues to be important in Year 3 and 4 as we move towards developing our comprehension skills. Please listen to your child read each day, and ask them questions about what they have read. Remember to sign their reading record so that they will receive a reading dojo. Reading books need to be in school each day.

PE

Our PE day is WEDNESDAY. 

This term we will be focusing on teamwork skills.

PE kits should be in school every day, and no jewellery should be worn. Stud ear- rings may be covered with plasters from home, or removed. Long hair should be tied back.

We will also be going swimming every Tuesday afternoon. You should have received a kit letter.
