Dear Parents and Guardians,

Welcome back! I hope you all enjoyed your Easter holidays. It’s great to be back in school.  I would like to extend a very warm welcome to Miss. Powell, who will be teaching the class throughout the term.

PE ~ Class 4’s PE continues to be taught on Thursdays and the children can continue to come to school dressed ready for PE and wear their kits throughout the day. As well as their usual kit (plain house-coloured t-shirt, plain shorts, and training shoes) it would be advisable for children to come with a pair of plain tracksuit bottoms over their shorts (preferably grey, black, or green). Please ensure they are wearing their school jumper as normal.

‘The sun has got his hat on (some days)’ ~ We have enjoyed some beautiful weather this past week and I hope it continues for the bank holiday weekend. It would be wise for children to apply suntan lotion before coming to school over the coming months, especially when we know it will be lovely. A hat would help on these days as well.  But please continue to send children in with coats as the weather can turn (this is Britain after-all!).

Up and coming activities – We have a busy term coming up.

  • Shane Johnston is an artist, and he will be coming into class to work with the children three times this term. His first visit is next week.
  • We are part of a digital ‘Music in Me’ singing activity organised by the Lancaster and District Schools Singing Festival Team. Our workshop with the specialist music teacher will be on Thursday 5th
  • Then there is our Jubilee Week, Sport’s Day, Rose Queen……. Just the usual Summer term at Overton!

Homework ~ Please see the homework timetable for Class 4.

HANDING IN DAY HOMEWORK TITLE HOMEWORK TASK
Daily Reading Children are expected to read at home each night. Also, there will be time available in school for the children to read independently as well as to an adult.
Homework will continue to be organised on Google Classroom. Please feel free to organise how and when each task is to be completed. I ask that one piece of homework be completed by Thursday of each week.

 

Friday Spelling We will be working on a weekly list of spellings.  These will be posted on Google Classroom a Monday, and these will be tested on a Friday.

Reading ~ I would like to emphasise the importance of daily reading to encourage reading for pleasure, children are able to change their reading books as often as they are completed. I would ask you to make a note of reading completed in your child’s reading record and notify us when your child has finished a book.

Finally, if you would like to discuss any concerns about your child’s progress, please pop in at the end of the school day or alternatively make a formal appointment through the school office and if you would like to be a part of our classroom learning, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

With kind regards and thanks for your continued support,

Mr. Wood, Miss. Powell, Mrs. Gudgeon and Miss. Coultas
