Happy Half Term Blue Class

Well done Blue Class for another successful half term during which you continued to work hard with resilience and enthusiasm. We kicked off 2024 with an exciting 'Blackwell Film Festival' topic where you created your own films linked to all of your learning. You proudly shared them with Yellow Class who were very impressed with your film making skills. 

We finished the half term with a 'What's special?' topic where we enjoyed reading an award-winning text, The Rhythm of Rain by Grahame Baker-Smith, and created your own picture books for our Red Class friends to help them learn how special water is. During this topic we also learned about the Hindu faith. Our trip to the Hindu temple was certainly a fascinating one particularly being able to observe many rituals, see artefacts and hear stories learned about in school. Visiting such a place, for many of us, was very different and new but the respect and curiosity shown by all of you was noted by our guide and other visitors there. These experiences are important in helping you to understand how diverse our local area is and how such diversity helps make our community and wider world an interesting place to live.

It has been a busy and hardworking half term so have a good break this week. Enjoy time at home or away, with lots of time to rest and play. A little bit of reading and times table practice would be really helpful too so that you continue where you left off when you return. We look forward to seeing you on Monday 19th February where we will set sail on the Seven Seas and learn about some swashbuckling adventures!

Be safe, helpful and kind and we'll see you all soon.

Happy Christmas Blue Class

Well done Blue Class for a great end of term. Your performance of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe was absolutely brilliant and deserved the standing ovation you got (we've never had one of those before). You certainly led the way as Year 4s with great singing, dancing, acting, narrating and even being stagehands.

We’ve certainly shared a lot of exciting learning this half term including our Big Blackwell Book Festival, fascinating yet stomach churning investigations about the digestive system and discussing famous Christmas paintings. And what a lovely end to the term this week with a festive panto, a delicious Christmas dinner (thank you to Mrs Barker, Mrs Miles and Miss Shepherd) and fun party games! You've all been stars and have made it really enjoyable for the adults too.

We hope you all have a lovely Christmas and enjoy having fun and lots of rest with your family. Thank you so much for the very kind gifts and messages. It is very kind and generous of you.

Only three more sleeps to go so keep being patient and keep safe.

Happy Half Term Blue Class

Hello Blue Class,

Well done for an excellent first half term in Year 4. You have worked very hard and are setting a great example to the rest of the school. Learning about 'The Anglo Saxons' followed by 'Planet Earth' have been enjoyable topics and it ended in style with your fantastic family assembly. We were very proud of you during your performance and it was lovely to see how much you've grown in confidence and what super learners you are. Your grown ups were certainly blown away by how much you've learned in just one half term!

Have a lovely half term break with lots of rest and play. If you are able to find some time to work on your targets we sent home last week, that would be great. When we return to school, our new topic is 'Best Books' where we'll be sharing a tale from a snowy land and developing your Science and Geography skills further.

We look forward to seeing you on Monday 6th November when we will tell you about our new exciting project.

Love from Miss Townsend and Miss Kuriger xxx
