This week has been go go go! We've gone from healthy food and how it's digested to inflatable obstacles to yoga and mindfulness. As you'll be able to see, we've had a blast.
We had lots of fun during Career's week. We listened to lots of talks from interesting jobs like a doctor, groundsman, bank manager, physiotherapist and much more. Here are a few of the pictures from the week.

We had an absolutely fantastic day on Wednesday. We endured chanting times tables, sitting up straight, listening to Bible readings and sitting in silence. We also had lots of fun though.... Sewing PE drills Handwriting using ink pens Using slates to write on Wearing the dunce hat Getting Victorian names Most of us wanted to stay as a Victorian School.....only if the girls got to do everything the boys did and if Tom could use his left hand again.
Wow, what a busy half term we've had!
From dinosaur week, to skipping festivals, to assemblies in their plenty, to a rocking Easter Production and a fabulous trip to Liverpool.
We really have made the most out of these few weeks.
I have assigned some mathletics and spellodrome activities for over half term.
Please use the Easter holidays to rest up and spend time outside so we can hit the ground running in April.
Can't wait to hear what you all get up to over the 2 weeks, let me know if you do anything on purple mash or write any excellent stories. Don’t forget to dress up for our Victorian Day on Wednesday 19th April.
Thank you for all your hard work. HAPPY EASTER.
Miss Pearson, Mrs Harrington and Mrs Milner.
We've had lots of fun this week getting ready for Easter. We teamed up with Year 3 to have a go at a maths treasure hunt. It was very tricky but 3 teams managed to complete it. We also spent time pretending to be surgeons in English. This involved operating on long words and cutting out the letters we didn't need. As all great surgeons do, we then stitched the words back together using an apostrophe.
We had soooooo much fun at the skipping competition on Monday. We were competing against 6 other Catholic schools in the area and everyone brought their A-Game. Year 4 skipped superbly and came third for our skip dance which involved the whole class. A big well done to: Lily for coming third in the Speed Bounce, Philip for coming third in the dreaded Pretzel, Ciaran for coming second in the Cross Over and the Keep the Pot Boiling team for coming second!
Year 4 had an absolutely fantastic time in Liverpool on Tuesday. We spent time learning about how import and export has changed and looking at the Liverpool Docks. We then looked around the museum, a lot of fun was had singing to the Beatles in the karaoke room! Then after lunch we went to the museum shop - a highlight for some - and went out into Albert Docks.
We sucked up insects using a pooter, looked at different habitats and classified what we found using a classification chart.

I hope you all have a great half term and spend time with your families relaxing. I look forward to seeing you all in just over a week. Miss Pearson
We had a marvellous time in Year 4 on Roald Dahl Day. We made dream jars, drew Quentin Blake style illustrations and wrote fantastic character descriptions of them. We also turned ourselves into giants in the playground, in our maths lesson we drew around our hands and feet and then scaled them up to GIANT SIZE! Everyone looked great and had a phizz-whizzing time!
Welcome back, I hope you all had a great holiday.
We have already been busy with our Literacy and Maths and have got to know each other well.
