Look out for Class News here too! We will update our class page regularly with news and photographs too.
As ever, we are looking forward to our residential to Malham. We have our first meeting about Malham on Wednesday 5th December 2018 at 6:30pm. We will be sending home booklets abou thte trip for any parents who can not make the meeting.
If you or your child have any concerns or quieries about Malham in the meantime, please do not hesitate to come in and talk to one of the teaching staff. We believe that this trip really helps children to become more responsible and gives them a chance to flourish outdoors, with their friends.
CONTINUING THE SUPERHEROES MATHS CHALLENGE AND SMIRFS!
Thank you very much for all of your help so far with times tables and SMIRF practise! We really appreciate this and the children are off to a fantastic start and we are sure this will help their class work too!
Swimming will continue all year on a Thursday morning so please ensure pupils have appropriate kit with them as it is now a curriculum requirement for all pupils to be able to swim 25meters.
Our PE sessions will be on Tuesday afternoons and pupils will require an outdoor kit, including wet weather kit, as we do try our best to go outside if at all possible.
4RT will continue their music lessons on a Wednesday so please can parents ensure children have their instruments witht them. The brass performance will be held in the hall, however the date and time is TBC.
Pupils in year 4 have being looking at evaluating their own learning and have taken part in metacognition lessons; learning about how the human brain learns. This is helping them to take responsibility for their learning and to independently find strategies to progress their learning. To do this, we have been focusing on learning a new skill, touch typing, and evaluating the stages of learning we go through to become competent at a new skill. It centers around building a pathway over the synapses in our brains through practice. We are hoping that pupils will be able to apply this throughout the curriculum in the coming terms.
,We are looking forward to another fantastic term, if you have any questions or concerns please, as always, call in and speak to any of the year 4 team - Mrs Crossley and Mrs Tranter.
Here are a few pictures from our 2018 residential in Malham....
We had a fantastic trip to Oakwell Hall. The pupils gave a great account of themselves showing real enthusiasm and asking some great questions. This trip really helps to make our Tudor topic come to life for the children. A big thank you goes to all the parent helpers as well, for helping to make the trip so successful.
Battle of Towton 2018
This year we will be reenacting The Battle of Towton on Friday 5th October. We are lucky enough to be accompanied by Mr Stringer from the Towton Battlefield society, who will share his expertise throughout the day. We have also arranged for him to vist school the week before to give the children more hands on experience with his historical artefacts.
Please see the pictures from last year's battle below.
