Minera Lead Mines Visit

On Thursday, children in Years 3, 4 and 5 will visit Minera Lead Mines in the afternoon to take part in a project run by Groundworks. Children will have the chance to hunt for bugs, pan for ‘gold’ and take part in a scavenger hunt of the industrial heritage of the lead mines. Children will need to wear clothes and footwear suitable for walking to and from the Lead Mines and for being outside for the afternoon. Children will have lunch in school as normal and will return for the end of the school day.



On Friday, Year 3 and 4 will be going swimming to take part in their class gala. Children to bring a swimming kit and towel.

Thank you for visiting our class page. Here you can find information about the class and find out how to support your child's learning. Please follow your child’s Seesaw for regular updates from class.

Reading at home

Reading with, or encouraging your child to read regularly at home is the best way you can support us in school. We expect children to read regularly (at least four to five times a week) and all children have a school book to take home with them. Children will also read regularly in school, whether it is their own book or a class book. Depending upon their need, children will read their school/home reading book once a week, or less frequently with an adult in school. Children will also read their book to themselves, so will need to bring it into school each day.


Boom Reader

Children in Year 3 to 6 and their parents can now use Boom Reader to log reading. Boom Reader is a digital reading record that will allow us in school, you at home and children to log their reading. There are two ways of logging reading for your child. You can either use the web version or download the app. There is also a separate app for pupils to log their own reading if appropriate. If you would prefer to continue using the paper reading records then that is fine, just keep logging reading here and we will do the same in school.

Children learn and practise spelling patterns weekly in school using Read Write Inc. You can support your child at home with extra spelling practice by accessing the extra spelling activities. Please see the information in the booklet below. Feel free to use the activities from previous year groups to recap or consolidate.

TT Rockstars


Pupils should log in to TT Rockstars using their personal log in details. We have had great success in learning multiplication tables with children who access TT Rockstars regularly. There are opportunities for children to play in school, but the more practise they get, the better.

Keeping Healthy

Please help us to promote a healthy lifestyle by providing your child with a healthy snack at break times. Children should have a water bottle in school, which can be refilled throughout the day; water bottles with closable lids can be kept on children’s desks during lessons.
