Year 3 & 4 Sports Day - Thursday 26th May 2022


All parents and carers please join us for a fun filled sports day!


Location: Earlswood Junior School Field


Time: 9:20-11:40am followed by a picnic on the field which will end at 12:20pm


The entrance for parents and carers will be via the top main entrance for the junior site. You will be asked to sign in when you arrive at the gate and if you are unsure there will be members of staff to help direct you to the activity your child will be starting on first. Please be patient, we will aim to sign you in as quickly as possible.


As much enthusiasm and encouragement not only for your child but the whole colour team would be fantastic! See you there on what will hopefully be a bright and sunny day!



For the summer term the Year 4 P.E days are Tuesday and Friday.

Please make sure children are wearing their full P.E kit on these days. 

Book Swap Shed


Now that we have launched our book swap sheds at the Infant and Junior school sites, they are open for use for any year group before and after school every day. Please ensure that the books are age appropriate and in good condition!

STEM Week - Jars


During STEM Week Year 4 will be carrying out an investigation that requires jars. If you have any washed jars with labels removed that you are happy to contribute, please give them to your child's class teacher next week!

Book Swap Shed


We are excited to launch our book swap sheds at the Infant and Junior school sites. Each week we will invite a different year group to bring a book they no longer want and swap it for one in the book swap shed. Please ensure that the books are age appropriate and in good condition. Please bring your books to class and they will be put in the shed. The children will get the opportunity to swap the books during the week. It is Year 4's turn the week beginning 14th March.

If you have any carboard or plastic recycled materials that you could donate we would be very grateful. Please hand anything you can bring in to your child's class teacher.

Christmas Cards


This year, if your children would like to write any Christmas cards to children in their class, class lists will be available on their Google Classroom pages. We will be doing year group post boxes so the children can bring them in and put them into the box. They will then be distributed to the correct classes, so please ask your children to write the class on the envelope as well as the name!

Children in Need


On Friday 19th November it is Children In Need. We would like the children to come in their own clothes, wearing something spotty if they can!

We are also asking for all children to donate £1 or more if possible. They can either bring their donation on the day or you may donate online through Scopay.

Anti-Bullying Week


The week beginning 15th November is Anti-Bullying Week. To kickstart the week, we would like the children to wear odd socks on Monday 15th November!

Year 4 Egyptian Day


On Friday 8th October Year 4 are having an Egyptian Day! We will be doing lots of fun activities and would love it if the children would be able to dress up in a costume. Please see the letter below for some ideas!

Reading Records


The children are expected to read every day and record it in their reading records. The teachers will be checking them every day to ensure they are reading and read any messages from parents.

PE and Woodlands


Please send children into school in their PE kit on Tuesday and Friday. The children will need black or burgundy shorts or joggers, a white t-shirt and school jumper. They can also wear an Earlswood hoodie for outdoor PE. They will need black trainers. 


Our Woodlands day is Thursday, so the children will need their wellies and waterproof clothing every Thursday.


Wellies can stay at school long term if you prefer, however the children must have them on the days stated.
