PE this term will be on Tuesday afternoons, when we will work on our Mini Mermaid and Young Triton skills through personal, social, cognitive and creative skills. Children need a PE kit in school every day (please check our information pages if you need a reminder about the kit). Children should wear trainers outside or pumps inside, please teach your child to tie laces if their shoes have them. Swimming is part of the Explorers PE curriculum and will be on a Wednesday afternoon each term, please check the swimming information for more details.
Spellings are sent home on a Wednesday and spelling tested on the following Tuesday. Please return homework books on a Monday.
Creative Homework is set at the start of term and the date for completing will be on the sheets.
Class visits are on Tuesday mornings this term, we look forward to welcoming you into the classroom between 8:45 and 9:00am to enjoy seeing how your children learn in our room.
Our topic theme this term is 'Why do so many people go to the Mediterranean for their holidays'? The creative homework will link with our cross curricular work and science this term. Please check the homework sheets for the date to send this into school.
Please let one of the Explorers team know if we can be of any help with your child's learning.
We will be focussing on learning words from the year 3 and 4 list as well as letter patterns over the next year. It would be great if you could help your child practise these so that the children become confident with them. They could use a variety of ways to do this: using
- look, cover, say, write
- making a picture of the word
- ‘say it silly’ to remember the syllables
or other ways we have practised in class together.
Thank you for your continuing support with all the homework, we do appreciate the effort and the difference you make to your child’s learning.

Year 3 and 4 spellings
We are currently working hard to learn unknown words from the year 3 and 4 spelling list. The children can focus on those that they do not know as well and there will be a test next week to assess which words are known.
