Blue Class News
Hello Everyone back at school,
Here we are in sunny Malvern. We arrived at 10.30am and have had a great walk up the beacon this afternoon. Tonight we will be on a Wild Wood Walk and orienteering! Everything is lovely and we are all happy.
Love from Mrs Moss, Miss Townsend and all of the children in Year 4 x x
Just a reminder that Blue and Green Classes will be running an organic farmer's market on the playground this Thursday at 2.45pm - 3.15pm. There will be plants and tasty treats for you to buy.
All of the children are extremely excited about our trip next week and have been asking LOTS of questions! So I have put a few reminders for them on here to hopefully clarify some things.
- Children do not need to come to school in school uniform
- Children will not need their book bags
- Homework can be handed in the following Monday
- Children need to bring their lunch and drink in a small rucksack (food and drinks are only needed for Monday lunchtime)
- Children need to bring a water bottle so it can be used during the three days
- Wellies, sun hats and sun cream are essential!
This time next week our bags will be packed! I am very much looking forward to our residential at Malvern. Please check that you have handed the letters you received last week to your grown ups at home and return the forms back to me as soon as possible (Wednesday at the latest). If there is anything you are unsure about ask me during the week. I have put a task on the School Wall to get you into the Malvern spirit!
See you in the morning.

What excellent ideas and work posted on the School Wall so far this holiday. I have enjoyed reading your posts and look forward to more over the weekend. I wonder who will be top of the star tree when we return. Keep up the hard work.

P.S. If you have any ideas for activities linked to food or farming, post a message to me on My Wall and I'll see what I can do!
For all children who are taking part in Voices and Visions at Worcester Cathedral on Monday 9th June, due to only one ticket per child being allocated, we welcome other family members who are unable to attend to watch our dress rehearsal in the school hall on Friday 6th June at 3.15pm.
I hope you all have a restful and happy holiday. Well done for all of your hard work over the last few weeks and for making a brilliant class library. I'm looking forward to reading all of your stories. You will be able to borrow books from your library when you return to school.
Keep reading and practising your times tables during the holiday and I'll look forward to seeing you after the break with an exciting new topic.
Love from Miss Townsend xxx
Hello Blue Class. I have added three exciting School Wall activities for you to take part on during the holidays linked to our new topic 'Food and Farming'. There is one online game which will help develop your mental maths skills. Enjoy learning and earning some stars and shields!

What a brilliant day we had on Wednesday, bell-boating along the Alvechurch canal. Mr Train was very impressed with your technique and determination and he said with a few more sessions at Upton Warren to help develop your stamina we will be serious title contenders at the annual Bromsgrove regatta! Wow!
Mrs Moss and I had a very pleasant day with you all, learning about the history of canals, spotting wildlife such as herons and the bluebell wood and chatting with the house boat residents, holiday makers and fishermen. Thank you children for once again being exceptionally well behaved enabling us all to have fun and learn so much.
Just a reminder to bring in your favourite book from home to share with us on Tuesday.
See you all on Tuesday.

To keep your brains active over the Easter holidays I will post some activities for you to do on the School Wall. In addition to this, keep reading regularly and practise your times tables we have learned so far this year (3, 4, 6 and 8).
Our new topic when we return is 'Best Books'. I would like you to have a look on your book shelves at home and find your 'best book' and bring it to school to share it with us on the first day back.

Happy Easter everyone.
I hope you all have a good holiday and rest. Fingers crossed the sun continues to shine.
See you after the break.
Love from Miss Townsend x
If you are unable to attend Wednesday morning's Easter Celebration and you would still like your child to have refreshments, please send £1 in to school with them on the day. They will be able to enjoy the refreshments with a member of staff unless there is another parent (in the same time slot) who you would like them to join. Please let us know if this is the case.
I have put some new activities on the School Wall linked to our new Easter topic. There is a maths activity too.
See you on Monday.

What a busy day we've had today! You all did very well this afternoon at Alvechurch Middle School. It was lovely to see you trying your best (and some games were quite challenging) with the older Year 5 children and getting to know some of the children you may be with in September. Once again, you were a credit to our school with your outstanding behaviour and attitudes. From watching you all today, I know that you will all be ready in September to move to middle school and have a happy and successful time.
Well done Year 4s.
from Miss Townsend
Well done Blue Class. I was so proud of all of you today for your performance in our family assembly. Your singing, dancing and story telling were all fantastic and it was lovely to see you all perform with great confidence. I have had lovely comments from your parents who thought you were all brilliant! I think we have a few budding actors and actresses in the class!
Our pirate morning was also a huge success which was down to all your hard work over the last few weeks and your excellent communication skills. Your parents enjoyed taking part in your treasure hunt challenge as well as all the other things to see and do.
We will finish our pirate topic on Friday by writing your very own pirate story. So, over the next few days you might want to start thinking about what exciting adventures you might include in your story upon the Seven Seas.
Once again, very well done for your fantastic performance and work today.
See you tomorrow.
