Blue Class

Happy Half Term

Hello Everyone,

Very well done Blue Class for working so hard this half term during our 'Go Global' and 'Jubilee' topics. They have been fascinating topics where you have developed both your understanding of the wider world, including the history of South Africa and The Commonwealth, and closer to home when investigating our Royal Family. It certainly was a surprise when we discovered that Queen Elizabeth owns all of the dolphins in British waters and she doesn't have a driving licence or passport!

Last week, was certainly one we're sure we'll remember for a long time to come. Learning how to dance around a maypole with friends from Astley Primary School, being put through our paces by Darren Harris (the most decorated British blind footballer), creating crowns of coins (followed by endless counting of 1ps and 2ps by some willing volunteers), a warm and wonderful sports' day with parents able to cheer you on and a street party with lots of tasty treats were some of the main highlights. Phew... we'll all need a good rest this week.

Thank you to your grown ups at home for supporting you in so many ways this half term from encouraging quality homework each week, working on targets shared at parent consultations, generous donations during our sponsored learning and cheering you on particularly during the Year 4 'big' race. Parental support is greatly appreciated and it makes such a difference to the children's academic progress and learning behaviours.

Have a lovely half term and any Platinum Jubilee celebrations you may be taking part in. Keep enjoying lots of reading and times table games over the next few days too. Your times table fluency and accuracy have greatly improved as a result of lots of practise both at home and in school so keep going during the holiday so you'll be ready and raring to go for our special times table quiz during the first two weeks back. 

Have fun, keep safe and we'll see you next week.

Happy Easter

Hello Everyone,

Very well done Blue Class for working so hard this half term during our Adventures and Easter topics.

It has been a busy few weeks and yesterday you finished on a high with a great song and poem performance to entertain visitors at our art exhibition. We were so very proud to see your excellent artwork on display and pleased to see many orders placed. We imagine they have pride of place in your house and in many grannie and grandads’ houses too!

We’ve also enjoyed a super 'live' family assembly this half term as well as excellent sporting performances in High Five netball and cross country. All of our events this half term have shown us just how much your courage, resilience and communication skills have developed. Well done Blue Class.

Over the holidays, have fun reading and keep practising those times tables too. Can you master the 7s before we move onto the 9s and 12s when we return?

Have a wonderful Easter break and a well earned rest. We’ll see some of you for holiday club next week but if not, we’ll look forward to seeing you in a couple of weeks to begin our ‘Go Global’ topic.

From Miss Townsend and Miss Kuriger 

Happy Half Term

Hello Everyone,

Well done for another successful half term with lots of hard work and creativity. It was lovely to finish our Ancient Egypt topic today sharing your learning with our Yellow Class friends with the bread tasting a particular hit (especially of pepper and chilli for some)!

This week, 'Bankwell' has been in operation for the first time and it has been great to see you paying in your hard earned wages, from bakers to window cleaners to Nursery helpers. Have a happy half term and a well earned rest. We look forward to seeing you in a week's time for the start of our Adventures topic. You'll find out which particular adventure/adventurer you'll be learning about when you return.

Happy Christmas

Well done Blue Class for a great end of term. Your performances in Christmas Around the World were fantastic and, if your grown ups at home are able to watch it on the DVD or online, they will be equally as proud of you as the adults in school. You certainly led the way as Year 4s with great singing, dancing and narrating.

We’ve certainly shared a lot of exciting learning this half term including our Wonderful Words Celebration Day, solving dilemmas about libraries and exploring and discussing famous Christmas paintings. And what a lovely end to the term today with a brilliant panto, being crowned Christmas Wake 'n' Shake champions 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 eight more sleeps to go so keep being patient and keep safe.

Love from Miss Townsend, Miss Kuriger, Miss Burgess and Miss Bailey xxx
