School day

The school day starts at 8:45am and finishes at 3:15pm.  The children will need to be at the gate a few minutes beforehand. Children will use the main gate at the front of school. A member of staff will open this at 8:40. We will leave school onto the main yard.


Homework is given out on a Thursday and must be returned on the following Tuesday. Homework always consists of maths using IXL, spelling, grammar and TTRS. It is vital that your child reads every night. They must also spend at least 5 minutes per day practising their times tables. This can be done on TTRS, hit the button or using the following website:

PE and Swimming

This year, children will attend swimming lessons for half the year and do PE lessons at school as normal for the other half. 4L will attend swimming from September to February half term and 4T will do PE at school first and have their swimming sessions from February half term to summer.

Children should come to school wearing their PE kits on their allocated PE days. For Year 4 this is a Tuesday. Children may wear joggers rather than shorts in the cold weather but these must be black and appropriate for movement. Children should also wear their trainers on PE days which should be plain black.

Times tables

As you are aware, there is a multiplication check in the summer term of year 4 where our children will be tested on their times table knowledge. This will comprise of 25 quick fire questions which test the times tables from 1 to 12. In order to prepare for this test, it is paramount that the children know all of their times tables and can recall them quickly. They can practise this using TTRS and online games.
