Welcome to Waves

Here you will find information about our learning and events. 

For information about the curriculum in our Year 4 and 5 class - please see the topic web below.



Reading - daily and for an increasingly longer duration. This must be active reading (thinking, talking, questioning, relating to other reading experiences) and books must be from our Accelerated Reader books. 

Home-Learning - this will be set each Friday and is due each Wednesday. The children must take responsibility for completing this and bringing it to school by the deadline.
