Water World!

Year 4 and 5 had a ‘splashing time’ at Water World today! We were so proud to watch them beam with confidence as they played in the water, bravely tackle the many flumes and also behave extremely sensibly in such a busy environment!

Thank you to all of the children for a fabulous day! Thank you also to everyone who came along to make it a safe and enjoyable experience for all.

Mrs Hartwell & Miss Frearson.

Judaism

Year 4 are really enjoying learning about Judaism.

We have discussed where Judaism came from, what beliefs underpin this religion (recognising some similarities to Catholicism) and some of the special signs and symbols.

This week we have been exploring the Jewish festival of light, Hanukkah. Jews celebrate this festival to remember God’s miraculous gift of light which he gave to the people of Israel over 2000 years ago to help them restore their temple after fighting for what they believed in.

After learning about the traditional celebrations that take place during this festival, we learnt a Jewish song and went outside to have a little dance (and a lot of fun!).

Oh Hannukah

 

Electricity

Year 4 had a fun afternoon exploring circuits, creating their own to make a variety of components work including bulbs, motors and buzzers!

 

 

Year 4 & 5 are going to Water World!

As a reward for contributing to what has been a fantastic year, we have organised a trip for Years 4 and 5 to Water World in Staffordshire on Tuesday 17th July 2018. This is a great opportunity for both year groups to celebrate the progress they have made with their swimming either last year or this year and to have a ‘splashing time!’

The cost of this trip is £20; this includes their coach journey there and back, entrance into the water park and a hot lunch. All money should be paid via Sims Agora. PLEASE NOTE THAT SIMS AGORA WILL NOT BE AVAILABLE TO SUBMIT PAYMENT UNTIL MONDAY DUE TO TECHNICAL ISSUES. If you experience any problems with this system, please see the school office. We also ask that every child brings with them a non-refundable £1 coin for their locker. If you would like to send this in earlier in a named envelope, please feel welcome to do so.

We will be leaving school on the coach at 8.45am prompt so ask that children are in school by no later than 8.30am to be registered. Children will need to wear their school PE kit and bring with them a full body swimsuit or swimming trunks, a towel and a pair of goggles (if they wish). We also ask that they bring a healthy snack to eat before we swim and a bottle of water. Children are due to arrive back at school for 3.15pm but please, as always, keep an eye out on the website for any updates regarding traffic.

The food included in this price consists of a drink, fries and a burger, chicken nuggets, or something similar. Children will be able to make their choices on the day but please do note below if there are any tolerances or allergies that we need to be made aware of.

We kindly ask that you please return the consent form on the bottom of the letters handed out today to your child’s class teacher and make payment as soon as possible (no later than Friday 13th July) to secure their place.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask.

Thank you for your continued support.

Sports Day

Well done to all of the children who took part in today’s sports day. All of the activities were great fun and the children put in 100% despite the heat!

Special congratulations to Cana who won the Sports Day Cup!

Thank you all so much for coming to watch, support and cheer the children on, Thank you to the PTA for purchasing the much needed gazebos to provide us with a little shade. Thank you also to the staff who ran each station and of course, Mr Youson for organising such a fab event!

Protecting Me, Protecting You

Year 4 enjoyed taking part in today’s ‘Protecting Me, Protecting You’ programme which teaches children about staying safe.

They were educated on:

  • Safe behaviour
  • Safe supports
  • Their body being private
  • Understanding feelings
  • Saying ‘no’

This was a very informative session based around games, storied, craft and a lot of discussion. I was so proud with how forthcoming with their ideas they were and how they were very mature when discussing more sensitive topics.

Well done Year 4 and thank you Sam 🙂

R-Time

Today, we thought about our choices and the consequences of them. We related this to our British Values and talked about how we have the right and freedom to make decisions but it is down to us to make sure they are the correct ones and challenge those that we think are wrong. We discussed how we should all treat treat eachother how we would like to be treated and show respect.
