Year 3 & 4

Blue Class, Years 3 and 4 at Yarmouth Primary

Dear Parents/carers

Staff – This year in Blue Class the staff team are Nickie Jones (Teacher) and Steve Pickford (HLTA).

Morning routines – The children will be greeted in the playground at 8.40am by a member of our class team. Registration is completed upon entering the classroom at 8.45am. Should you wish your child to attend morning club, this is available from 8am.

End of day – At the end of the school day 3pm, the children will be taken to the gate in the playground for collection. If someone is collecting your child for you, please make sure you have notified the office or unfortunately we will not be able to hand your child over.

PE – We will be doing PE on a Monday and Tuesday afternoon, so please ensure your child has their full PE kit in school on these days. For health and safety requirements please ensure your child can either remove their earrings, or you provide them with surgical tape to cover them.

Drinks – We recommend that your child brings in a named water bottle to drink throughout the day. This should not contain juice and your child will not be allowed to have their drink from their lunch box.

Snacks – If your child wants a snack for break time, this will need to be provided from home. Being a Key Stage 2 class, we no longer receive free fruit. This has to be a healthy snack such as fruit or a cereal bar. No crisps or chocolate coated items will be allowed from now on.

Reading – This is a vital part of your child’s learning. We will hear your child read a minimum of twice a week. To support your child at home we ask that you listen to them read as often as possible. At this age they should be able to read to themselves and record this in their reading record book.

Homework – Each half term your child will be sent home with a topic related homework task. They will need to complete a section each week and return it to school on a Monday morning for marking. This will help develop their independent working skills as well as support the work we do in class.

They will also receive spellings on a Wednesday and have a week to practice them. The spelling test will take place the following Wednesday.

On a Friday your child will receive Maths homework and this will need to be handed in the following Friday. This will help consolidate the learning we have done in class.

Thank you for taking the time to read this! Hopefully you have found it useful, however if you wish to discuss anything please come and see me at the end of school.

Yours sincerely

Blue Class Team
