Years 3/4

Spring Term 2017

Week beginning 3/4/17

All our Year 4 children will be given a Swimming letter, giving information about when their class will be having their swimming lessons at Oswestry Leisure centre, during the Summer Term. Over the holiday, please could you make sure your child has swimming kit: towel, swimming costume/shorts, hairbrush and, if possible, goggles and swimming cap or a hair bobble. On their swimming day, please can children not wear earrings. They do not need to bring in deodorant or shampoo.

There have been some improvements with children bringing in their PE kits on time, but a few children are still forgetting their kits. Please make sure the children bring in PE kits on a Monday, so that they are prepared for their PE lessons. It is very important all children take part in PE activities and it is also a statutory requirement that they do. As it is still cold at the moment, children must wear warm kit for outdoor SportsJam sessions. They need jogging bottoms, T shirt, warm jumper, socks, trainers, gloves, hat and a warm coat. If possible, on the day of their P.E. session, can children who wear earrings not put them in for school just on that day? This would save them having to wear tape to cover earrings for health and safety reasons.

Please remind children to return their Library book so they can be changed on their designated day.  If they haven’t finished reading their book, it can be renewed and they can then continue reading it. This is important; as we can then make sure there are no overdue books.

Can we also remind children to continue to learn their weekly spellings, read regularly and for parents to sign their child’s Reading Companion, if possible every night.  Homework must be handed in on the date shown on the note that is handed out with it. Usually, the homework is given out on a Friday and needs to be returned by the following Friday.

Thank you.
