Door number 1 of our advent calendar is ready to open now!

Year 3/4

Welcome to our Year 3/4 class page. Please check our webpage for key dates and reminders about what is happening in school. The children have been working very hard this week with their tests and preparing for all our Christmas events.

Tomorrow evening (Friday 2nd December) twenty-five children from the Lower Juniors will be performing at the turning on of the Christmas Lights in Clapham Old Town. Everyone is welcome to attend and join us in supporting those children. If you are representing the school by singing in the choir you will need to be in school uniform. We will meet in Clapham Common (in the area by Joe Public next to the Common Tube Station) at 5pm. We will walk around together at 5.10pm. Any children in attendance are the responsibility of their parents/ guardians although some of the staff will be there too.

On the 9th December is the Christmas Fair in the main playground after school. Please come and join us and support the PSA in raising money for the school.

On Monday 12th December all of the Lower Juniors will be singing for our Christmas Carol Concert in the small playground. All parents/ families and friends are invited. Children need to be at school at 4.45pm for a 5pm start. The children will enter school by the big gates by the nursery and congregate in the small hall (music room). Parents you can enter school at the office and gather in the small playground. The children are to wear their uniforms but should be well wrapped up. The performance will last for approximately 45 minutes.

On Thursday 15th December the children will have their Christmas Lunch. The children are welcome to wear their own clothes on this day. School will close on Friday 16th December at 2pm.

PE Kit

Children are now allowed to wear their PE kit to school on the days that they have PE. Please ensure your child has the correct PE kit which consists of a white t-shirt, navy shorts and plimsoles or trainers. During the colder weather your child should wear the School PE jumper.

If your child has to attend an event such as Mass or go on a school trip, they will be required to wear their school uniform on that day. PE kit should be brought to school and children will change for their PE lesson accordingly.

If your child has a club before school, uniform should be brought to change into, once the club has finished.

If your child has a club after school and it is not a PE day, uniform should be worn as normal and PE kit should be brought to change into before the club begins.

Our PE days are Monday and Friday and the children will be keeping their PE kits in school and changing in school again, rather than coming to school in their PE kits as they have this past couple of years. The children will bring their PE kit home at the end of each term to be washed.

If your child plays football in the court they are welcome to bring in trainers to keep in their lockers to wear during lunchtime.

Homework will be set on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. The class page will be updated with homework for my classes - please note that my maths homework will be for my maths group only.​ Homework will be set starting next Wednesday 21st September.
