    In year 4 the children will be given a reading book which will be changed when necessary. Please ensure that your child has their book in school every day for reading time and is reading regularly at home too.

     

    PE days for Comets class are Tuesday (outdoor PE) and Thursday (indoor PE).  During the autumn term (second half) year 4 will be going swimming every Wednesday morning.  Please could we ask that the children have their PE kit in school from Monday to Friday in case PE days are changed at short notice.
