Welcome to Castle Class' Page!

Welcome to the Autumn term!


We hope you have had a lovely summer and are coming back refreshed and ready for a new school year! Welcome to the Castle class page, the best place to keep up to date with your child's learning. Here we will regularly share our class and personal achievements and the exciting activities we get up to in school.


⭐Mrs Jones teaches on a Monday and Tuesday and Miss Smith teaches Wednesday-Friday.

Mr Rogers will be with us to support our learning all week.⭐


⭐Reading at home is very important. We expect children to read at home at least 3 times per week with an adult. Each time your child reads, please record this in their reading record as it will count towards their 'Read around Shropshire' prize! Please ensure your child has their reading book and record in school daily along with their water bottle.⭐


⭐In KS2, children are encouraged to take responsibility to record their new spellings on a post it note and stick it in their diaries to take home. New spellings are given on a Monday and tested on a Friday. Please do practise them at home. This can be done in lots of fun ways - chalk on the patio, whiteboards, paint, in sand, using bright colours etc. ⭐


⭐We also encourage your child to practise their times tables regularly- we recommend TTRockstars. All children have their TTRockstars log in details in the front of their reading diary.⭐


⭐There are many links attached below to support your child with their home learning.⭐


⭐PE is on Thursday and Friday. We recommend that your child brings in their PE kit on a Monday and takes it home on a Friday- this way they have it in school for any other event that may crop up.⭐


⭐We welcome open communication so please contact us via our class email We always aim to respond to you within 24 hours (apart from weekends). If it is an urgent matter requiring a response it is best to call the office and leave a message for us.⭐


We're very excited about the learning journey we have ahead of us smiley

Darwin Values Checklist Y3/4 Galapagos Award


Here is a copy of the Darwin Values tick list that we cover in Year 3 and 4.  We are creating a portfolio for children as they move through school.  We are asking parents to send in photos. certificates, awards that show the new skills or activities children have taken part in.  This could be photos of them on their bike, scooter, roller skates, or of them cooking or sewing.  It might be charity events they have been involved in.  Any questions regarding this, please ask.
