Welcome to J K Rowling Class Page (Class Four)

Welcome to our Class website page, where you will find lots of information about our curriculum, our trips and (most importantly) our chidlren's learning!  You can also get hints about where to get help with your child’s learning at home. Additional links and resources will be added over the coming weeks, including Reading support materials.

With Year 6 Boosters in full swing, we are now offering a comprehensive range of after-school and pre-school sessions: Monday before school is for Challenge Writers, Thursday after school is a fun Reading Comprehension booster, and our newest 'learning club' is on Wednesday after school, which includes both children and parents and focusses on Maths skills, knowledge and strategies.  Many thanks to the parents who attend, and to the children for extending their school day and special thanks to the two children (you know who you are!) who help me by being 'Miss DP's special helpers'!

The Extreme Reading competition is running again this term - which one of our Class Four readers will in the £5 book token this time? Well done to Caitlin who won it last term.

If you have any questions, please always feel free to come and chat with me at the end of the school day.


Homework for Year 6 will benefit from being topped up with as much extra as possible - the CGP Guides and SAT Buster packs are ideal for this. PLease ensure you are using these as often as possible.

Where there is any extra time in your busy weeks, I would very much encourage you to visit the library and to share with your chil the love of books.  To this end, we are launching a new Join The Library initiative - details to follow by letter.

Lastly, as always, homework is set on Friday and due in on Wednesday.

Dates for the DIary
