Well Done Y4!

Y4 have won an extra Scoot Fit session, which will be this Wednesday 9th December. This is a reward for their excellent behaviour at lunchtimes recently. It is a good idea for the children to bring gloves to wear, as they can get blisters from the handlebars.

Thank – you.

Reverse Advent Calendar in Support of St. Wilfrid’s Centre

This year, due to the circumstances we are asking children not to bring in Christmas cards for their friends to be distributed in school.

We thought this could be a nice opportunity to do something different as a family, and donate money that would have been spent on cards to a charity, or contribute to a reverse Advent calendar.

We will have a reverse Advent calendar box in our class for donations to the St Wilfrid’s centre. These items will then be quarantined before being delivered.

Suggestions for donations can be found below:

Felt tip pens, colouring pencils & mindfulness colouring books

Stationery, notebooks & puzzle books

Luxury toiletries, hand cream & bar soaps

Biscuits, sweets & chocolates (wrapped)

Tins of casseroles, potatoes, vegetables, fruit, pot noodles

Thank you all for your continued support.

Advent 2020

Sunday 29th November is the first Sunday of Advent, the Church’s season of preparation for Christmas. Y3 (Mrs. Wilde’s class) have made a liturgy video to help us to start our Advent journey, which we will be continuing through R.E. and prayer times in class for the next three weeks. The video is on Google Classroom for you to enjoy and share at home.

Wishing you all a blessed Advent season.

Non Uniform Day Monday 30th November and P.E. Next Week

On Monday, 30th November, school is having a non uniform day in aid of the Bethlehem Fund. Y4 usually come to school in P.E. kit on Mondays, however we will join in with the non uniform day, so Y4 can wear own clothes. We will still be going swimming on Monday, so children should wear something that won’t make it too difficult to change at the pool! We will not have our usual P.E. on Monday, although we will take a quick active break in the afternoon if the weather is good. Please can the children come in their P.E. kit next Friday 4th December, as we have a super session of sportshall P.E. booked that morning provided by an external coach. Please pass the information on to other Y4 parents, and hopefully everyone in Y4 will arrive suitably attired on Monday!

Home Learning While Self Isolating

This is information for those parents finding themselves in the position of having children at home self isolating while the rest of the Y4 bubble is still at school.
If your child has to stay at home to self-isolate and is well enough to complete some work,  please check the Y4 Google Classroom for home learning to reflect what they will be missing in school.   
I will add the Maths lessons from the Oak National Academy which link to the topic currently being taught in school.  The English lessons from Oak Academy on Google Classroom are currently based on our whole class text ‘How To Train Your Dragon.’ In addition to this your child can also access Times Tables Rock Stars and MyOn Reading. I will also post R.E., Science and wider curriculum lessons based on the topics we are covering in class this term, depending on what we are doing in school that week.
Please encourage your child to read as much as they can and to talk about what they are reading while at home.

Thank – you.

Scooting and Skipping this week in Y4

This week in Y4 we have been really active, with the Skipathon and the Scooter Day as well as our first swimming lesson on Monday! Friday seems to have come around very quickly, as we found that the time flew by doing all these activities. We still haven’t finished all our skipping challenges, and we’re going to continue next week and really keep up our skills and fitness! If you have a rope at home, why don’t you try some of the challenges you’ve learnt?

Y4 Swimming on Monday 9th November

The Y4 class will be going swimming at Mylnhurst School Pool on Monday 9th November. They will still be doing P.E. on Monday afternoon, so they will need to come to school fully kitted out ! The children will need to wear their swimming costume/trunks under their P.E. kit and bring their underwear and a towel in a bag. They may bring a snack to have on the walk back to school.

If you are able to volunteer to accompany us on any of the Mondays up to and including 25th Jan, please let the school office know as we usually need 2 extra adults to help with the walk to and from the pool. Thank – you for your support.

Big Write

Well  done  to everybody in Y4 for their excellent efforts in our Big Write on Wednesday. We wrote descriptively using similes and metaphors to describe Hiccup’s feelings, the dragon cave and everything he could experience through his senses. Many of Y4 have really improved their punctuation, presentation and length of writing this term.  This is just some of the beautiful work produced.
