Remembrance Day 11th November 2020
The children collaged and created their own poppies using red and green tissue paper and wore them with pride for Remembrance day this year in Year 4.
WELCOME TO YEAR 4!
Year 4 have settled well and are getting into the swing of things - thank you for continuing to read at home with your child; we have noticed a huge improvement in confidence when reading aloud. PE days are on Tuesdays and Fridays - please remember to remove earrings on these days and have kit in school at all times as we do occasionally have extra sessions and kit is needed. Homework is set on a Friday and handed in by Wednesday of the following week. We have had fun with our first topic "Pharaohs and Fortunes!" and we are now exploring the Stone Age until the Christmas break.
NATIONAL SCHOOL SPORT WEEK 2020
With young people set to miss out on their main school Sports Day this summer, the Youth Sport Trust is taking its annual National School Sport Week campaign beyond the school gates to parents and families - reinvented as National School Sport Week at Home.
Taking place from 22 to 26 June, the UK-wide campaign will give families, communities, schools and sports clubs the chance to capture the enjoyment, competition and camaraderie they have been missing out on during weeks of school closures and social distancing.
All you need to do is choose, challenge and capture your sporting efforts from the choices of activities attached. Do this for each day this week and submit them all together by Sunday 28th June 2020 to receive a certificate for your achievements.
Good luck! :)
* There are no limits to the number of activities you choose each day!

Hello, we hope you are all staying safe and keeping well. It has been strange getting used to the new arrangements but there have been lots of activities available to keep the children busy and hopefully they have enjoyed them. Here are a few (optional!) activities to keep the family busy over the Easter break:
Print or draw the Easter egg template to colour/design for our competition - take a photo of the finished entry and email to the office by Easter Monday - email@example.com
Complete this time Capsule activity booklet - you are part of a historical event that people will talk about for years to come, why not record it? You could design your own booklet in your own style if you aren't able to print it!
Create a Spring or Easter scene using real eggs - decorate them and make it fun, be as creative as you can! The link above will give you some ideas but see if you can think of something original! Again, photographs of your entries to be emailed to the office by Easter Monday - firstname.lastname@example.org
Yoga activities for a peaceful break, calm and refreshed mind (and it comes with a lovely sheet to colour in!)
We would love you to share your work, ideas and activities with us. Your competition entries should be sent to the office and any project or class work you have completed can be sent to your child's teacher on their year group email address (see class pages).
Look after yourselves and each other, have a good Easter break!

Welcome to Willow Class 2019-2020!
Our theme this half term is "Ancient Egypt". We have explored the tombs and treasures of the great Pharaoh "Tutankhamun". We have mummified a fish to learn the mummification process undertaken by the Ancient Egyptians. The children have also enjoyed the Egyptian theme day where they tried out a variety of jobs, including mummy making, creating amulets, carving sculptures and trying Egyptian cuisine.
Grandparent Morning 2019
We had lots of fun with our grandparents when they came to play games with us. We played a range of games together including Dobble, connect four and Top Trumps. Everybody had fun and there were lots of smiles and laughter in the class.
Thank you to all the grandparents who joined us!
