Philosophers 2023-2024

Welcome to our class page!


Miss Briggs is our Class Teacher.


Mrs Davey will be working in our class to support our learning and Mrs Russell will cover Miss Briggs' PPA time on a Wednesday afternoon.



We are looking forward to a brilliant year, full of exciting activities, adventures and lots of learning!


If you ever have any questions, please come and speak to us!


Key Information:


Please ensure your child brings in a water bottle and their reading book/record every day. It would be helpful if you can also ensure that their belongings are labelled - it makes it easier to return when left around school!


PE and Swimming:

For Spring Term 2 and Summer Term 1 - Monday's will be Forest Schools and Thursday will be swimming.


On Thursdays, both Year 3 and Year 4 children go swimming (dates below, they will have PE lessons on the other weeks). Children will need their swimming kits on these days.


For normal PE lessons, Children will need to come in their PE kit.  

This should be:

  • plain white t-shirt
  • black shorts/ joggers
  • plimsoles/trainers

Please ensure a bobble is provided to tie back long hair and your child is able to remove their own ear-rings (or has tape to cover).


For Forest Schools, children will need to wear appropriate outdoor clothing that you don't mind getting dirty or wet. Children will need a change of shoes (boots, wellies) that they can change into for this session. 



Homework will be set on a Friday and needs to be submitted by the following Friday morning. Homework will be set on Seesaw each week.

The homework each week will be as follows:

  • A spelling activity on Seesaw
  • Times Table Rock Stars
  • Reading every day for at least 5 minutes and recorded in Homework Diaries (these are checked on a Friday too)


All of your child's logins are inside of their Homework Diary


Please see the 'Homework Help' section below for more information on homework. 

Any incomplete work will need to be completed by children during break/lunch. If they need a little extra help, please let me know and we will find a suitable time to go through it.
