Class Saints

All classes in our school have a class saint. Our class saints in Year 3/4 are St Jude, St Joesph and St Bernadette.


Homework is set on a Friday and is due the following Wednesday. On Friday, your child will receive a homework letter telling them the task for that week. We use MyMaths, an online programme where you can complete homework and practise all aspects of maths. Logins for MyMaths have already been given to your child. Please keep this information safe. You will need it throughout the school year. 


Our PE day is Thursday. Children should wear their PE kit to school. They should bring spare socks during the colder months. Swimming will take place in the Summer term.
