Welcome to Year 4 at Warren Park!
We would like to start by thanking you for your kind support. It has been wonderful to finally welcome all of our children back into school.
We have been so very impressed with just how well they have settled back into school life and the positivity with which they have approached the changes to their learning experiences.
With our day to day communication now limited due to Covid, we wanted to update you with some key information as we begin Year 4 together.
Please make sure that your child is sent into school wearing their PE kit on Thursdays. This will limit the amount of kit in school. Contact sports will be limited and all equipment will be cleaned after use.
On PE days, we kindly ask that you ensure that your child wears their normal Warren Park polo shirt and jumper or cardigan with either shorts or tracksuit bottoms (blue, grey or black preferred if possible). We would ask that children do not wear jeans on PE days and that they avoid wearing a football kit as well. PE lessons will be held outside wherever possible so your child should wear their trainers rather than school shoes.
Please remember that your child will remain in this kit throughout the day.
Earrings should not be worn to school on PE days. If they are newly pierced then
you should send your child in with surgical tape covering them. We only allow small stud earrings in school at any time and sleepers or dangly earrings are not permitted for health and safety reasons.
- Sadly, we can no longer accept any birthday cake or sweets for distribution during the school day. We can also no longer allow the children to distribute birthday invites in school either. We ask that these things are dealt with outside of school for the time being. Please be assured that as soon as we are able to accept cake, we will most certainly let you know!
- The children will soon be able to start bringing reading books home again. Please be assured that we will be working hard to make sure the children begin on a suitable book band colour, especially to encourage fluency and confidence having had such a long break. These bands will be under regular review so don’t be surprised if they seem to move quite quickly through the colours this term! We ask that reading records come in only once a week, on a Friday, when they will be checked and signed off in the normal way.
In Year 4, our COSMIC time will be on Tuesday. Unfortunately, we are not able to provide coats or welly boots so please ensure that children come in suitable shoes and have coats and jumpers on cold days. We will try to keep children away from the mud and will not be going out in heavy rain but please only send them in shoes that you are happy to get a bit messy.
We were delighted to see the children settle back into school brilliantly last week and we are really excited to explore all the interesting aspects of Year 4 life at Warren Park over the coming year.
Please don’t hesitate to give us a call if there is anything you wish to discuss.
Thank you for your consistent co-operation and understanding.
Year 4 Team
