Key Information

Children are to come into school in full school uniform and get changed into their PE kits on their PE days. Please bring full PE kits into school on these days.


Reading Books

We encourage children to read for at least 30 minutes every day. We would appreciate your support in helping them to find some time every day to enjoy a book.

Children will be given a book band reading book and a 'reading for pleasure' book to take home. There will be an opportunity to change these books every Friday.




Please login into Atom Prime each week: 


English and Maths will be added every Tuesday.


Spellings will be sent home at the beginning of each half term alongside the year 3/4 statutory spelling words. Children will take home a home spelling book which needs to be brought into school each day.
