Welcome to Skylon 2022/23


What the Children Do

Welcome to Skylon class! We are getting right back into it after the summer break including our first trip, to RHS Wisley gardens, which is in the second week! We're looking forward to all the exciting learning that is going to happen and will regularly update the website to give a glimpse into the children's days. 

If there is anything else you wish to know, or you have any questions, please do not hesitate to speak to Miss Stillwell, Mrs Traer or any member of the Year 4 team. You can also contact me by emailing skylon@towerhill.hants.sch.uk and I will do my best to get back to you as soon as possible.


PE days

Our P.E. lessons will take place on a Tuesday and Thursday for this half term. Please ensure your child comes dressed in their P.E. kit on these days unless told otherwise. Your child will need to wear dark coloured shorts and a white t-shirt for indoor P.E. sessions and for outdoor P.E. sessions they will need to wear trainers/plimsolls, a white t-shirt, dark bottoms and the new Tower Hill P.E. sweatshirt if the weather is cold. P.E. sweatshirts are available from the office. Please ensure that all of your child’s uniform, including P.E kit, has their full name inside, especially jumpers.


Reading books

Reading books will be sent home with your child’s new reading record by the end of this week. We ask that children read a minimum of three times per week at home. You may wish to sign and date their reading records and include any comments you have about their reading. It is important that the children bring their reading book in to school every day.



Homework will be sent home every half term in the form of a homework menu. The children will have a range of different tasks to complete across the half term at home. The children will be expected to complete at least three out of the six tasks from the homework menu each half term but more is encouraged.


Breaktime snacks

We would like to remind you that as a school we insist on healthy snacks like fruit and vegetables. With the snack trolley system being unavailable during this time, a healthy morning snack will need to be provided from home if you would like your child to have one. The children are encouraged to bring in water bottles to stay hydrated.
