Chough

 

Welcome to Chough Class!

Chough Welcome Letter 2019

In Chough Class (Choughs are the black birds in our school emblem), we have all of the Year 3 and 4 children. Our teacher is Miss Stobbart and our teaching assistant is Mrs Byford. We have a lovely classroom with large windows looking out over the Church.

 

Please make sure that you continue to read on a daily basis, learn your weekly spellings and practise your times table target.

 

It’s Term One already! I can’t believe how quickly the summer holidays have gone. We have a busy and exciting term coming up, including the Harvest service, an Anglo-Saxon day with Kestrels at the end of term, and lots more.

Dates for your diary

Wednesday 11th September @ 2pm – Chough Class open classroom afternoon.

Reading Books
All children will have a Reading Record Book which should be kept in their book bag.  All children will be expected to change their books and fill in their reading records independently. However, if you have queries about their books please do not hesitate to pop in and ask.
I would expect all children to be reading at home with an adult for a minimum of 20 minutes most evenings.

 

P.E.
Please can you make sure that P.E. kits are available in school all week.  Our PE session will take place on Tuesday (with PH Sports) and Thursday afternoons this term.
