Year 4 Badgers

Welcome to the Year 4 Badgers!

 

My name is Mrs Royle and I am delighted to be teaching the Year 4 Badgers this year.  Mrs Patel will also be helping us in Year 4.  At the bottom of our class page, you will find lots of important information such as our class bulletin, homework grid, curriculum overview and lots of useful websites to support learning.

 

Important Reminders

* PE - Our PE day is Monday, however, it is important that PE kits are in school at all times.

* School Library - The Badgers are timetabled to visit the school library every Tuesday lunchtime.  Don't forget to pick up a loyalty card for the chance to win a new book from the SMSJ bookshop!

* Homework is given out every Thursday and should be returned on Monday.  All children have a homework book with a homework grid for the half term.  Homework includes: home reading (3 parent signatures required), spellings (test every Monday), TTRockstars and one other piece to be completed.
