  • P.E takes place on a Monday and a Thursday

  • Forest School takes place on a Tuesday until Christmas (Suitable clothing is provided at school but please ensure your child has a pair of wellies in school)

  • Water bottles are allowed in school if your child would like to bring one in

  • I also ask that your child spends at least ten minutes a day reading at home to support their reading in school. They should bring their reading book back into school each day

I would like to thank you all in advance for all of your help and support in the upcoming year. As always, should you have any questions or queries, do not hesitate to contact a member of the Year 4 Team.
