Class Notices
There will be homework every week, this will develop and extend from the work that
we complete in class, so it is very important it is completed! Children must complete
all homework to the highest standard in their homework books or sheets should be
glued or stapled in securely. Many of these homework tasks will need the children to
research using books or the internet but please encourage your child to understand
and write the results in their own words.
The children will have word lists to learn each week; these will be given to them on a
Friday and should be practised nightly.
Our spelling test will be the following Friday.
The children should be using their Home/School Diary everyday and I do request
that you please read it daily and sign it at the end of each week.
Please ensure that all school clothes and P.E. kits are named clearly and available in
school at all times.
If anyone has any interesting information about or photographs of
Standon/Puckeridge and the surrounding area please send them in or come and speak
to the children-Your help would be much appreciated!
I will take this opportunity to invite you all to our class assembly which will be held at
9.15am on Friday 11th November to commemorate Remembrance day.
Please feel free to contact me if you have anything you wish to discuss.
Miss Hoy (Year 3/4 Class Teacher)
