Welcome to Snowdrops

Welcome to Snowdrops. We are a Year 3/4 class and our teacher is Mr. Brown. We are a hardworking class and always do our best.

We will have PE on Mondays and we will take our PE kit home with us each Monday afternoon.
Homework is given out on Fridays and returned the following Thursday. This will consist of maths, grammar and vocabulary.
We take home a new set of spellings every Monday, to learn for our test each Friday. Spellings and times table are expected to be practised regularly over the week.
If your child is having school lunch, please ensure that payment is brought in at the beginning of the week.
Thanks for reading. Remember to check the website each week to see what we’ve been learning!
