Our Class

Sparrowhawk Class
 
Welcome to Year 2, 3 & 4's class page
 
Our teacher is Miss Willett and our Teaching Assistant is Miss Hetherington.
 
P.E is every Monday afternoon. However, the children should have their kit everyday so that we can be flexible with our timetable. Children who do not bring their kit will have to sit out of the P.E session, and I will inform parents at the end of the day if this has happened. 
 
Bury Rangers is every Wednesday afternoon. Please make sure the children have their forest kit and suitable coats and welly boots/walking boots.
 
Spellings are every Friday. We have a quiz based on the spellings given the previous Friday, and new spellings will be given. Please make sure they practise these throughout the week in their red spelling books.
 
The children have a yellow reading record where their reading must be logged everyday. This can be logged with a comment or just a signature.
