Welcome to Frogs Class

Frogs Class is for year 3/4 children and is taught by Mrs Louise Gurney and Mrs Rachel Hood, assisted by Mrs Burke-Scott and Mrs Wheeler.

Dear Parents/Carers.

We hope you had a lovely half-term break.

Mrs Hood and I would like to welcome you back to the final half-term of the academic year.  We have many exciting opportunities for your child to look forward to (as well as working hard!!)

Mrs Hood will be teaching Monday and Tuesday and Mrs Gurney will teach Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.  

We are kicking off our half-term with a science week that all the children at Debden can enjoy.  In the afternoons, we will be mixing up the children into their house groups so they can go to different teachers to enjoy a variety of science investigations!

Frogs and Kingfishers are also lucky to have a cricket coach come to teach cricket on a Monday afternoon - please ensure your child has their PE kit in every Monday until we break up.  Year 3s continue to swim this half-term, and the year 4s continue with their PE session on a Tuesday morning, so please also ensure your child has the correct kit with them.  

The following week, we have our visit to The Olympic Park with Dragonflies class to look forward to - if you have not sent in your contribution and permission slip, please do so as soon as possible.  

Mrs Hood will be teaching some of her favourite subjects - computing and art/DT, and Mrs Gurney will be teaching some of hers - science and maths, so the children have got both of our passions to share and enjoy with us.  

We also have sport’s day, the KS2 performance and end of year celebrations - wow, what a lot we are going to pack in!

Regarding homework - Mr Shelton gave your child a homework grid, which was for the term, so please encourage your child to continue with this. Reading is of vital importance - so please continue to encourage your child to read regularly as part of their homework.  (We say 10 minutes minimum per night please).

Finally, thank you for your continued support - we are looking forward to the half-term ahead!

Best wishes.

Mrs Gurney                                                                             Mrs Hood
