    Welcome to Years 4 and 5!

    Sapphire Class

    In Topaz Class, we pride ourselves in being caring, considerate and a hard-working team.

    Reading

    Your child will be given a reading book and diary to take home and read. Please ensure that they are in your child’s book bag every day. It is really important that your child reads as much as possible. We ask that you try to read with your child each night, even if it’s just for 5 minutes. Your child will also have lots of opportunities to read and enjoy books throughout the week in school. 

    PE

    Currently, our PE days are TUESDAY and THURSDAY. Please send your children in with appropriate clothing depending on the weather. During the Winter, children should have both tracksuit bottoms and shorts as we could be outside come rain or snow! Girls should bring tracksuit bottoms too as they are not to wear tights underneath shorts. PE kits can be left in school until half-term when they will be sent home to wash.

    Playtime

    During lunchtime play, the children are allowed on the field unless the weather means this is not possible. Please  ensure your child has a pair of tracksuit bottoms and trainers to enable them to go on the field should they wish to do so. 

    Homework

    Our homework is set on a Wednesday and is due back in on the following Tuesday. It will be marked on Tuesday and therefore, it is important that it is handed in on time to ensure it is marked. Our homework is either linked to our learning in Maths and English or will be topic based. It should take no longer than 20 minutes for each piece. If it is a longer piece, the children will be told before hand.

    Spellings will be handed out each week on a Thursday to be tested  on Thursday the following week. 

    Volunteers

    At Sound, we always welcome volunteers to come and read with the children, work alongside the class or even volunteer for clubs or special activities. If this is of interest to you, don’t hesitate to speak to the office or the class teacher and they will point you in the right direction.

    Mrs Allen, Mrs Wagg and Mrs Kubis are the teachers in Topaz Class.

    Mrs Allen teaches on a Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday morning and Mrs Wagg teaches on a Wednesday afternoon and all day Thursday and Friday. Mrs Kubis teaches the Year 4’s every morning, Monday to Friday.
