Skylarks class is taught by Miss Bentley and Mrs Haq. We try our very best in Skylarks and we have fun along the way. We aim to build confidence in everyone so that and enjoy seeing all the children learn and grow, watching them surprise themselves at just how amazing they are!
Welcome to Skylarks
Welcome to Skylarks' Class - we are a mixed year group class of Years 3 and 4. We are taught by Miss Bentley (Monday, Tuesday and Thursday) and Mrs Haq (Wednesday and Friday). We also have Mrs Wright in class who will be working alongside the children.
Moving from Key Stage 1 to Key Stage 2
If your child is moving from Year 2 to Year 3, please note that your child will no longer receive a free piece of fruit or vegetable at playtime. Alternatively, the school runs a tuck shop at playtime where they can purchase a healthy snack for 30p.
Lunchtime is a little later, running from 12:30-1.30pm. To contribute to our school values of teamwork and community, your child will take on additional roles on a rota basis during some lunchtimes, such as handing out and collecting toys to put away.
Your child will no longer have an afternoon break time, but we ensure the children have opportunities to be active in lessons and regularly go outside for the Golden Mile.
Reading : Your child will take home their school reading book each day. We ask that they spend time reading at home each day and record their reading within their Reading Record book. We ask that your child brings their reading book and Reading Record book to school each day. They can do tests on Accelerated Reader after finishing their books.
Spellings: Children in Year 3 and 4 will need to know how to spell the common exception words for their year group. These can be found online and will be given to all children.
Timetables: Children should be practising their Timetables regularly. Children in Year 4 will complete an assessment at the end of the year.

Please ensure that your child comes to school dressed in the appropriate kit on these days. As the weather improves please can you ensure your child has their water bottle and has had sunscreen applied.
Please make sure that long hair is tied up on PE days, and earrings, if worn, are removed.
Skylarks will be swimming in the Autumn Term. All children require swimwear, goggles, swim hat and a towel.
Trips and Visits
This term we will learn about Ancient Egyptians. We are planning an exciting day where the children will get an opportunity to dress up and take part in different activities relating to our topic.
Year 3 / 4 Production: Each Spring, Year 3 / 4 produce a play, full of songs and performances, in which all children across the Phase take part. Please don’t miss it!
