Spring Term 1
PE Kit Trial
We are asking the children to come into school in their PE kit Monday and Fridays.
This will waste less learning time and mean more time being active. Per PE lesson, 15 to 20 minutes can be taken up by getting PE kits from the corridor, getting changed, finding 'lost kit', borrowing things for other classes and then getting changed at the end of the lesson.
Wearing their kit will also mean that the Daily Mile will be able to happen more swiftly and be safer as they are wearing appropriate sporting clothes.
It is a trial and we will monitor the impact it is having on the PE lesson and other lessons throughout the day and will review it at the end of this term.
In class, we are now focusing on spelling rules in line with the Year 4 curriculum. We will be teaching a lesson, the children will be practising daily and we will be testing the children weekly on these words.
Therefore, please practise the 100 high frequency words and Year 3 and 4 spelling words with your children at home as their will be no more teaching time for those words unless they come up in another part of our teaching.
