We hope you and your families have enjoyed a lovely February half term break.  Lent is a very special time at school as we prepare for Easter.  The children will be working towards their Easter Liturgy performance during Holy Week and focussing on a Stations of the Cross display to be displayed for the whole school to see and help their understanding of a stage of Jesus's journey to his crucifixion.


Please don't forget that Twitter is updated regularly, so you'll see lots of learning and experiences taking place on there.  Miss Raynes can be contacted on


We will use Twitter to regularly share examples of the learning and experiences that happen over the course of each term.


Key Information




This year, 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 this day.



Children will continue their swimming lessons on a Tuesday afternoon. On this day only, we ask that children come to school in their PE kit (tracksuit bottoms are ideal to help them get changed easily after swimming). 


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.


We look forward to a wonderful  term ahead and thank you for your continued support!
