    Geography rapidly became everyone's favourite subject today as the children learned all about tectonic plate movements using biscuits and chocolate icing.  They had to move the biscuits to represent a divergent, convergent or transforming plate movement and we learned all about how this creates volcanoes.  It was a delicious way to learn!

  • PSHE - Manners

    Published 10/11/17, by Lucy Hazlewood

    This week we are focusing on manners in PSHE lessons.  We did some drama today where the children acted out the wrong way to behave and then the correct way.  They definitely enjoyed not opening doors for people, shoving them as they walked past and interrupting each other.  They should be saying please and thank you a lot more so listen out for it at home over the next few weeks.

  • Wear It Wild!

    Published 01/11/17, by Zoe Duggan - Webmaster

    On the last day of a busy half term, the children in year 4 really enjoyed dressing up for “wear it wild”, in order to raise money for WWF.  This was all down to a persuasive letter written by Jamie in HB5 who convinced Mrs Green that it was a worthy cause.  Here are some pictures of our fantastic costumes.

  • Practising Problem Solving

    Published 20/10/17, by Zoe Duggan - Webmaster

    Some parents suggested they would like ideas for ways they can support their child practising problem solving.  Here are two fantastic websites to find the kind of problems the children are working on in maths. Just find the objective they are working on in class (addition, division, fractions etc) and there are banks of problems you can try with you children at home.  We are so grateful of the support you give your children.
