Upcoming events

On Thursday the 19th December we will be welcoming a Tudor visitor into Year 4!

The children will experience many traditional Tudor activities and will have the opportunity to explore bread making and wattle and daub along with many others.

Watch this space for photos of us enjoying our Tudor day...


From Tuesday the 6th January, we will be swimming every afternoon for one week. Children will need either a one-piece swimming costume or short, tight swimming trunks. Baggy, ‘beach style’ shorts are not appropriate for swimming lessons.


Class Timetable

On Wednesdays we have indoor and on Thursdays we have outdoor P.E.

Please ensure that children have plain jogging bottoms and a jumper for outdoor lessons during the winter months.

On Fridays we are lucky enough to have the fabulous Mrs Mayer teaching us music. Currently we are learning a Tudor composition.


On Fridays we give out spellings, magic maths and alternate Maths and English homework.

* English/Maths – collected in the following Tuesday

* Magic Maths – tested on the following Friday

* Spellings – tested on the following Friday

At the start of the holiday we often give out a piece of topic based homework.  This may be a creative activity which involves the children carrying out some research and then having creative ownership of how they present it. 


Children are expected to read at least 3 times a week and we have recently introduced 'Strive for 5.'  This is where children who have read 5 times a week every week are in with a chance of winning a book token. If your child’s reading diary has 5 signatures in it for each week their name will be put into a draw.  The draw for this will be in the last week of the term. 

Children may want to read their own books which is fantastic but we also require them to read school books which are levelled accurately to ensure the development of decoding and comprehension skills. Even though you may feel that your child can now read independently, please ensure you are still finding the time to question them on their reading to develop their comprehension skills.

Bear of the day and the Golden Tie

Each day a child from the class will be chosen to bring home the Cinnamon Bear.  It will be given to a child who has demonstrated our three character traits of respect, responsibility and resilience.

For those children who have demonstrated these traits all week, there is a possibility of bringing home the golden tie. This is a Townfield honour and the golden tie winner will have their photo displayed by the school office all week!
