P4 – Glow Password Change

Password Correct Icons - Download Free Vector Icons | Noun Project

Over the last few days, P4 all changed their Glow passwords. We discussed why our password needs to be secure and changed regularly to keep our accounts safe. They will use this password to access Glow, and Teams, in the future.

Each child picked 3 words, separated by spaces, for their password. If possible, please give your child a chance to try out their new password at home, while it is still fresh in their memory. If a previous password was saved on devices at home, this will need to be updated too.

With thanks,

P4 Teachers

Welcome Back and Spelling Homework

Hello P4M!  It was lovely to see your smiling faces  when you settled in this morning and it was fantastic to see you remembering routines introduced last week.  Well done!

We are starting homework this week, but only introducing  the spelling task. Last week we did it in class, now it’s your turn to attempt it on your own. Just try your best, that is all I can ask.

Spelling Homework   – ai / ay / a_e                                                                                You have been issued the same task using this week’s spelling words instead.   Remember that the instructions and guidance for  layout are on your front page and this week’s spelling has been stapled onto the second page. I would like to remind you to take each word in turn: Look, Say, Cover, Write and Check.   If you make a mistake, don’t worry, (we learn from our mistakes) just take the time to correct it.    The task is to be completed and returned to school by this Friday. If you complete it earlier, you can return it  sooner.                                                                                                                                                            A more detailed homework letter for the different curricular areas will be issued soon.                                                                                                             It would be great if at some point over the next few weeks, you  could cover your spelling  and maths jotters to protect them .

Reminders :                                                                                                                                P.E. is outside this term  on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

Remember to come to school with some sort of waterproof jacket (even on a sunny day) as the weather is so changeable.  Intervals will still be outdoors if it rains.

If you have any queries, then don’t hesitate to get in touch.
