  • PE is on a Monday and Wednesday. On Mondays, children will be involved in Sky Try Rugby sessions with Warrington Wolves. Please ensure that your child has the correct PE kit in school every week. The PE consists of a white T-shirt, black shorts or leggings and pumps. Trainers may be worn for outdoor PE.


We expect children to read to an adult at least 3 times per week. Please can you sign the children's reading records at home so that we have a record of the work they are doing at home. Children are expected to change their reading books independently when they need a new one. Please encourage children to do this as soon as they come into school in the morning if this is something they need to do.


Children will be set one piece of Maths and English homework per week. Homework will be given out on a Friday and children will be asked to return it to school on the following Wednesday.

Spellings will be given out once every two weeks when the children will be given a new spelling rule to learn. We ask that the children practise these spellings 3 times per week by writing them out in their books.

Times Table Rockstars

The children in Year 4 will be sitting a national online times tables test in June. This test will determine whether children can recall their times tables fluently, which is essential for their future success in Mathematics. It is therefore important that children practise their times tables as much as possible. We expect the children to access TT Rock Stars at least 3 times a week.


The children may bring in fruit for their snack, or toast is available for them to buy at 25p per slice. If your child brings in grapes to school, please can you ensure that they are cut in half to avoid choking.
