Dear Parents and Carers,
Welcome to Class Four! Here, you will find all the information you need about Year Four at Ovingham CE First School.
Reading books, book bags and diaries
Reading books will be given out on Mondays and if finished, should be returned on a Friday so that we are able to hand them out again the following week. It really makes a difference if children can read a little each day. Talking about the content of what your child is reading really helps with comprehension, which is just as important as fluency.
Book bags and diaries should be brought into school on Mondays and Fridays only (unless your child needs their bag for Badger Club). Any messages can be sent via the school office by phoning 01661 832581 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Alternatively, you can catch me most mornings, on the yard, before school.
Children bring in water bottles on Mondays, which should be kept in school throughout the week.
Wellies / outdoor shoes
We are fortunate to have beautiful grounds at Ovingham CE First School and we use them at every possible opportunity, whatever the weather! We ask that children have a pair of wellies or sturdy outdoor shoes that are kept in school for these occasions.
It would be really helpful if children could children bring in PE kits on Monday and take home on Friday. We are very lucky to have our Wednesday PE session delivered by the NUFC Foundation. Everyone loves Mr. Lambert! Mrs Forster currently delivers our second PE lesson on a Tuesday. PE kits should be a white T-shirt and black shorts or jogging bottoms with plimsolls for indoor and trainers (or outdoor shoes) for outdoors. Please ensure that all clothing is named.
Spellings and times tables will be posted on Google Classroom each Friday for a test the following Friday. Your support in helping your child to with these tasks would be greatly appreciated.
