Food Bank Reminder

There will be a collection of food for the St. Wilfrid’s Centre by our PTA reps on Thu 11th July. Y4 have been asked to give potatoes, fresh or tinned. If you could bring a donation, that would be wonderful.

Thank you for your kind support.

Tennis Taster Session Y4 Wed 10 7 19

We are lucky enough to have been given another Tennis Taster Session at Grove Club on Wed 10th July 9.30am – 10.20 am. We will walk to the club and the children will need their P.E. kit and a water bottle.

If any parents would like to accompany us, please let Ms. Devitt know as soon as possible. Thank – you.

Our R.E. Topic is ‘Building Bridges’

Our current R.E. topic is all about reconciliation and making the best choices. We read and heard the Parable of the Good Shepherd (Luke 15) and with a small group we made a board game to show the ‘way’ for a Christian on life’s journey and wants to be ‘found.’ We included advice written on squares and cards and we designed fun characters, as well as showing what we understand about our beliefs about reconciliation and how these affect our own behaviour and that of others.

Finding out about the Tundra Biome and the Arctic and Antarctic Regions

We got into some new learning in our Geography topic ‘Is Climate Cool?’ today when we found out more about the climate, plants and animals of the Tundra. We used Google Earth to find the 5 coldest places on earth. We looked at some photographs by Sebastiao Salgado of the Nenet people of Northern Russia and their life in the harsh climate.

We found out why the Antarctic is colder than the Arctic. Can you remember, or do you know, why this is the case?

Y4 at The Oakes

Here are some of the pictures from last week’s fantastic trip to The Oakes. The weather didn’t dampen the children’s spirits and they were all a credit to St Wilfrid’s with their fantastic behaviour, manners and attitude. Well done everyone!

Fun Squash Session 17 5 19

An email has been sent to parents about the following trip, however Ms. Devitt apologises for not giving out the paper letter copies. There is no permission slip and no cost, so this is just for your information.

We have arranged for the Y4 class to take part in a squash session at the Hallamshire Squash Club, 11.00 – 12.00 on Friday 17th May.

We will leave school at 10.15am and walk there, returning for about 12.45pm after eating a packed lunch at the squash club.

Please let school know if you could accompany us as a helper on this trip.

Following the taster session, some of the children will be selected for a competition which will take place on Tues 21 5 19.
