Ideally, children will be reading nightly, please could parents/guardians sign their child's diary upon completion of any reading of their reading book. This would help us to keep track of any reading outside of school and the children will receive points towards their bookworm certificates.  In addition to reading together, your child is still able to access Oxford Reading Buddy and TT Rockstars.

A homework grid is attached below. Please bring any work into school so that we can share it and celebrate your child's achievement with them.




The children will participate in two PE sessions a week. We will endeavour to do PE outside as much as possible in this first half term, so please ensure that your child has appropriate PE kit, taking into consideration the weather. Currently, children will need to attend school in their PE kits, on the days they have PE. The Woodpecker Class PE days are: Tuesday / Friday.


It is essential that children have trainers for PE. If our lesson is based on the field, there is the potential that your child’s trainers may get muddy. Therefore, we ask that your child has an additional pair of shoes, which can be worn inside the school building.


Home Learning


All children have access to school online resources that can be used on a daily basis.  These include:

  • Education City
  • TT Rock Stars
  • Oxford Reading Buddy
  • Espresso Coding

Pupils are familiar with these resources and login details are in your child's reading diary.


Children should read with an adult or older sibling for at least 15 minutes per day. 


It is also expected that by the end of Year 4 all children have accurate recall of multiplication facts up to and including 12 x 12. If your child is still learning to recall all times tables please find a link below to the BBC Supermovers website. The songs on this website can be useful when helping your child to recall different times tables facts.
