We hosted the Year 3 and 4 Locality Football Tournament at Stadio Del West Meadows and had a great afternoon despite the British weather! Thank you to all who attended, including a magnificent 10 teams – a new record for our partnership! Some fantastic football was on show, well done to the eventual winners @HoylandCommonPS a well-deserved victory after some terrific performances. Thank you to Mr. Smith & Mr. Armstrong for preparing the pitches – West Meadows were certainly terrific hosts. A brilliant afternoon.

Happy Halloween!

What a fantastic day we all had on Thursday! Together with Y4 and some Y6 children, we took part in some spooky Halloween activities. We started off the day with a game of hide and seek. All of the ghosts and ghouls had to search for the children that were hiding around the school. One clever Y4 boy managed to escape from all of the spooky characters searching for him! Our next activity was the Haunted Catwalk. We took it in turns to creep our way towards the judges – the scariest moves won a prize! A famous spooky dance completed this activity which we all really enjoyed. Following this, Year 5 took part in some maths activities and later in the day we dished out the popcorn and settled down to a spooky film. To end our Halloween day, we attended an amazing disco that our wonderful PTA had arranged for us.

Hockey Heroes

Our Year 4 Hockey team attended the locality competition at Springwood. The team breezed through the group stage finishing top of the group with some fantastic individual and team performances! The semi final was closely contested however the children edged through to the final with a 2:0 victory. The final was extremely competitive and was decided by just the one goal, unfortunately against us! The children were brilliant as always and were a real credit to themselves and our wonderful school! Finishing second was a simply fantastic achievement!

Year 4 Block Code

Year 4 have been working on their Block Coding using Scratch in our ICT suite. Mr. Child was particularly impressed with this amazing times table game linking the mathematics and ICT curricular together perfectly. Some very impressive coding allows random questions to be posed to the user, the programming also allows the user to choose which times table they would like to focus on! Great work, really well done.

Year 4 Brilliant Bridges

As part of our topic on Town planners, the children were given a challenge for their homework. They had to design and build a bridge which had to be at least thirty centimetres long and strong enough to hold a can of coke [other drinks are available.] Here are their outstanding bridges in action. Some super engineers of the future for sure! Fantastic work

Building houses in Year 4

As part of our cross curricular learning, we looked at fairy tales with a twist. This week, we have been reading the Three Little Wolves and the Big Bad Pig. The children spent time in the wild walk collecting resources to build their houses. They worked as a team to create some amazing homes. Unfortunately, the big bad pig came and smashed them down and we all had to run for our lives. The children thought it was great fun and created some amazing conversations about what happened in their Literacy lesson. These were then used as we praised punctuating direct speech. Well done everybody.

Year 4 Fabulous Homework

This Year 4 superstar has produced some terrific homework – none of which has been set by Mrs. Walton! She has made her own ‘WALT’ and Wish Lists or recycled some from class and produced work across a range of subjects, even planning her next 3D modelling task in ICT. A wonderful, self initiated collection of work!

Homework Heaven

Recycling has been a key theme in this showcased Year 4 homework; what an effort! The base of the bridge is made from laminate flooring. Recycling at its very very best. Beautiful, creative work, really well done!

Limericks

Year 4 have been learning about Limericks in literacy. They enjoyed their work so much that they even performed one live for or office staff! The standard form of a limerick is five lines, with the first, second and fifth rhyming with one another and the shorter third and fourth lines also rhyming with each other. A brilliant effort, really well done.
