P.E. Reminder

Dear Parents / Carers,

                                   I am looking forward to teaching your children in Year 4 at East Acton Primary and working with you to ensure that your children have the best well-rounded education possible.


Here are some ways that you can support your child at home:

  • Read every night for at least 20 minutes 
  • Learn times tables every day (up to 12x12)
  • Ensure homework is completed in plenty of time by the deadline (every Wednesday)
  • Practise spellings every day and encourage their use in writing and conversation
  • Encourage independence at home, particularly with self-organisation
  • Ensure that good quality sleep is a priority


Physical Education

PE for this term will involve and range of invasion games. Correct PE kit must be worn for every session and it is advisable for children to leave this in school at all times. It can be taken home for washing at the end of each half term (or more often if required). For indoor and outdoor PE lessons, your child will need: Black slip-on plimsolls or trainers, White t-shirt, black shorts or black track suit bottoms. All clothing and PE bags must be labelled clearly with your child's name. All items of school uniform must be labelled with a name.

PE will be every Monday and Thursday, so please ensure children are wearing their kits and have their water bottles on those days. 


Children will be asked to complete one piece of maths, one piece of English, spellings and Maths Passports. Maths and English tasks will be marked in class. Spellings and Maths Passports will be tested every week. Homework will be given out every Friday and should be completed and returned the following Wednesday. If you or your child need any assistance or have any questions regarding the homework, please see the class teacher.



You will find up-to-date information on events in the school newsletter which is also on the school website. There is also a parent noticeboard as you enter the playground with the current newsletter displayed and notices with additional information. The newsletter is sent out by email every Friday afternoon (or a paper copy is sent to those without email). Letters with parental permission slips will be sent out via the children's book bags prior to trips. Please check your children's book bags daily.


I hope this has helped and given some ideas on how we can encourage an effective partnership to support your children in their learning journey.


Yours faithfully,

Ms Harvey
