Class Four

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

Children take two books home to read throughout the week, one is a levelled reading book and one is a book of choice from the class library. Book bags come into school again on Fridays to return books (if finished) and take home another two for the weekend. We really encourage reading at home and are proud of the enjoyment our class take in reading for pleasure.  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 Alternatively, you can catch me most mornings, on the yard, before school.

Water bottles

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. 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.

Google Classroom

Spellings will be posted weekly on Spelling Shed and times tables will be posted on Google Classroom  for a test each Friday. Your support in helping your child to with these tasks would be greatly appreciated.
