An exciting update!
This term Years 3 and 4 have an exciting new topic: Invaders and Settlers. I’m sure the children will tell you more about this as the term goes on.
The children in 3/4AY will also have the opportunity to learn either the Clarinet or the Trumpet on Tuesday afternoons. There will be more information about this soon!
We have also changed when homework is handed out and in, it will be given on Thursdays and returned on a Wednesday, spelling tests will remain on a Wednesday.
The children will still be doing PE on a Monday and Friday and so will need both an indoor and outdoor kit in school throughout the week.
Visiting a French Café
In the last week of term a French fever took over Years 3 and 4.
In the morning the classrooms became bakeries creating delicious French apple tarts, pupils made pastry and sliced apples carefully. After break we made a golden syrup and cornflake topping and practiced a quintessential French tune – Frère Jacques for the parents.
In the afternoon after learning all about some key French café phrases the classes were transported to Paris to enjoy some French delicacies such as brioche, croissant and pain au chocolat. For dessert? A slice of homemade French apple pie that went down very well!
To end the day the parents joined us in 3/4AY for a sing along and to sample our food and view our fantastic work from the day!
Our GLOW day
We recently had an amazing GLOW day and certainly had the weather for it!
In the morning we made our own games out of what we could find in the playground and the field, they were fantastic! We had all sorts of ideas such as snakes and ladders, squares, mazes, mini golf and more!
We then learnt all about making bug hotels and have hidden them all around the school grounds so keep an eye out for them.
In the afternoon we planted some seeds around school and made very inventive natural paintbrushes which you can see us trialling in the pictures above.
We ended the day with a cup of hot chocolate, a biscuit and a recap of our favourite moments of the day.
Our exciting Ancient Egyptian day!
Just a reminder that we are going to be having our Ancient Egyptian day next week (Thursday 22nd November 2018). We can’t wait to see your costumes, just an oversized white t-shirt or a bedsheet will make a lovely outfit!
Remember your warm coat and school shoes as we will still be going out to break and lunch though.
A letter has been sent home this week to tell you all about our exciting swimming lessons coming up.
Our first lesson is the 30th October.
Please speak to the office if you need more information.
Today we tested our rafts, they all passed with (dry) flying colours floating across the pool beautifully!
Thank you to all the parents who helped out with this Cliffedale Challenge!
Pictures will follow soon.
