Melbur is our year 4 class taught by Mr Tonkin with Mrs Grindrod providing general teaching assistant aid.

We also have specialist teachers that will take the children for certain sessions:

Ms Trula – Spanish (Mondays)

Go Active! - P.E. (Mondays)

Children in Melbur bring reading books home with them and they are expected to read 5 times a week with a parent, for at least 10 minute sessions at a time. Children who read 5 times a week will have a sticker for their reading reward chart. They will read in school with an adult twice a week. To cement their learning, homework is sent home with children on a Monday and collected in on the following Monday. It would be beneficial to the child if an adult could spend time talking about their homework with them.
Empty! Please add a resource.
