Mrs Pickering - Bassenthwaite 2022 - 2023

Mrs Pickering

Welcome to the new school year and to Class 4's page.

We have lots of exciting things planned this year and this page is one way you will be able to see what we've been up to.

The autumn term starts with us learning about The Stone Age in our History lessons which links well with our science unit which focuses on rocks. 

Our PE day is Thursday and your child can come to school wearing their PE kit on this day. Please remember to consider the weather and encourage your child to bring a cap and water bottle in case we manage to squeeze in any last sunshine before the winter months come.


For your information...

* Homework will be set every Thursday and is to be submitted by the following Wednesday.

* Spellings are tested every Wednesday. Weekly spellings are set on Spelling Shed, please encourage your child to practise them this way.

 *Regular reading at home is encouraged and we encourage all children to have their reading record signed by a parent/carer at least 3 times per week.

*Children also have access to Times Tables Rockstars and are encouraged to use this learning platform at home.

Any questions or concerns , please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
