Red Kites

Dear Parents and Families, 


I hope you have all had a great half term and have managed to stay busy considering the weather. 


We are excited about our Tudor topic and we are planning a trip, information will be sent out soon. 


This term both year groups from the Red Kites will work together apart from maths and science. I will continue to teach year 3 for all subjects whilst the year 4s will be taught by Mr Alfieri and Mrs Morton (Maths) and Mrs Hood (Science).


I would request that your child brings in a water bottle each day so that they can stay hydrated in class. Water fountains are located around school so bottles can be refilled during the day. In additon, it is important that children bring their coats with them each day as the weather can change quickly at this point in the year.


If you haven’t done so already, please ensure that your child has a named PE kit in school, including trainers or plimsolls. Our PE days for term 3 are Wednesdays and Thursdays. I request that children keep their PE kits in school in case other opportunities arise. 


Homework for this term will continue to consist of the following weekly activities:

  • Spellings
  • Turbo Tables
  • Reading (remember 4 reads = 1 star ad 7 reads = 2 stars)
  • Power up maths 

Please can you remember to record the reads in their reading record each time so that we can award stars accurately. We have had many children achieving a range of different coloured reading bands. Keep up the hard work. 


As you know, we use Class Dojo as a tool to communicate and share information with you. However, please do ensure you contact the school office to inform us of any important information such as an absence or change in after school arrangements as we may not see dojo messages until the end of the school day. Our focus in school in the first term is being ‘responsible’ and being ‘loyal’. Children will be awarded a dojo ‘Epic Learner’ if they have exceeded expectations in class. 


My classroom door is always open and please feel free to ask questions or share any concerns. 


Yours sincerely, 


Mr Platt, Ms Mohammad and Mr Alfieri
