Just a reminder that all Y4 children will need to come to school in jogging bottoms and trainers (wellies are not needed) on the three days that we are bell-boating. On each day the children need a packed lunch and at least 2 drinks and please ensure your child has a sun hat and sun cream with them.
Many thanks - yet more exciting times!
I would like to say a big well done but also a big thank you to all Year 4 children who made our 2014 residential to Malvern a wonderful experience! Your attitude every day (and even this morning when late nights were beginning to take their toll) was fantastic, giving everything a go with smiles on your faces throughout. You enjoyed challenging yourself throughout, achieving things that seemed a bit scary beforehand, such as the climbing wall, zip wire and the tunnel of doom!! Kate and Heather told me as we left that your behaviour was so excellent that you made their three days really enjoyable and with your brilliant co-operation, desire to learn and positivity they only wished we could come and stay each week!
Please tell your grown ups all about your trip (maybe tomorrow after a good night sleep) and I'm sure they will be delighted when you tell them that you all now know how to make your own bed and your own sandwiches!!!
Sleep tight tonight, have a lie in if you can and I'll see you bright and breezy in the morning.

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.

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
