Curriculum Letter

Here is a copy of our autumn term curriculum letter: 


This term, our PE days are Wednesday and Thursday. Please ensure that your child comes to school in a PE kit that is suitable for colder weather. Please also make sure that long hair is tied back on these days and any jewellery is removed. Children will not be able to participate if ear piercings are not removed.

Times Tables

Times tables will be a big focus this year with the Year 4 Times Tables Check being administered for the first time in June 2021. Please encourage your children to practise their times tables on Times Tables Rockstars. The children have their log in details stuck in the front of their reading diary. Times tables will be tested weekly on Thursdays.


 New spellings will be handed out every Tuesday once we have taught the children the new rule or pattern for that week. Please help your child to learn their spellings at home.

Reading regularly is paramount as reading is a transferable skill across all areas of the curriculum. It is really important that your child is reading for at least 80 minutes each week so that they are improving their fluency and comprehension skills and consolidating what has been taught in class. Diaries will be checked each Friday. 


Here is a copy of the Alresford PSHE curriculum and letter that was sent out regarding the new policy, for your information:
