Our class teacher is Miss Kirton and our teaching assistant is Mrs Manktelow.
Update: Week commencing 16th July 2012
Well here we are, last full week before the summer holiday. We have had a really good year and made lots of progress. Please have a look at some of the fantastic photos we've put on here. Miss Kirton is so proud of us all. This week we will be finishing off our work, taking part in a mini olympic games and getting ready for the holiday.
Thanks to all our Mums, Dads and Carers who have supported us through out the year.
Miss Kirton wants to wish you all a safe and happy holiday and looks forward to seeing you all in September. She will be called Mrs Misselbrook then!

A reminder of expectations in Year 4:
- All children must read at least once on a weekend (Friday, Saturday or Sunday) and have their books signed by an adult. If the book is signed for each day, a raffle ticket is given to the child for our weekly lucky dip!
- Reading books need to be read at home, at least 3 times during the week (Mon-Thurs) and signed by an adult. If the book is signed for all days of the week then a further raffle ticket is awarded!
- Reading is considered homework and if the books are not signed for the weekend the child must stay in on Monday play and read to make up their reading.
- Miss Kirton keeps a list of the children who read daily, forget their bookshares and don't read at all. Forgotten bookshares = 1 point each time. Reading less than 3 times during the week = spend some privilege time reading to a adult in school. (Children that read every day recieve a raffle ticket & if they keep their points too, they receive a prize!! )
This may seem harsh, but it really designed to make the children think about their responsibility as is not fair to the large percentage of children and parents who are absolutely fantastic in making sure they read regularly and bring their bookshares everyday. Thank you to you - it makes such a difference!
Thank you for your continuing support and please keep up the hard work - your children are really worth it!
- Our P.E. day is Tuesday and all kit should be in school at all times. It is sent home at the end of the term for a wash.
- Our tuck shop day is Tuesday and each item is 30p. 2 items are allowed to be purchased and all money must be either in a purse or named envelope.
- Key Stage 2 children bring their own snacks in for play time. It must be a healthy snack such as fruit, vegetables, yoghurt or cheese. Please do not send sweets, crisps or cakes.
- Please make sure your child's uniform is completely labelled with their name on every piece, including their shoes & coats (you would not believe how many of the children have the same items!).
Gentle Reminder: Please can you make sure that you are checking your children's hair regularly for head lice. They are attacted to clean hair and are very easily treatable. However when untreated, they are very easily passed between children and our class has unfortunately already had a number of children affected this term.
If you have any concerns or queries and would like to speak to Miss Kirton, she is always happy to speak to you. She is always outside on the terrace at the end of the day but if you would like an appointment to see her in private, then please make an appointment directly with her or with the school office.
Keep checking our page to see any new things we are doing and if you have any ideas for this page let Miss Kirton know!
