Class 4 had our parent's assembly on Wednesday afternoon. It was very well attended. the children thoroughly enjoyed performing the dances, singing and reading their poetry and writing extracts.
As part of our Allotment topic, this week we visited our local Tesco store to do the "Farm to Fork" trail. We had a look at the huge fridge and freezer, gathered information about some of the fresh produce and made our own healthy cereal.
This week class 4 had a wonderful time when we visited our caretaker, Mr Clarke's garden to see his allotment. He told us lots of really useful and interesting information, some of which we had never heard of before!
For example: Mr Clarke uses "nematodes" to kill the slugs and snails and "four crop rotation".
Congratulations to our "Sport Stars of the Week". This week's lesson was learning and developing bowling in cricket. They showed good teaching and coaching skills, helping others to improve or made very good progress in the lesson.
Our Year 5 pupils had a fantastic "taster" day at St. Pius. They experienced:
English or R.E.
Food or design technology
and everyone did maths.
The staff at St. Pius commented on the excellent behaviour and conduct and asked that we pass on what a credit to their families and school the children were.
Well done Year 5s, we are very proud of you.
This week class 4 have been getting to grips with word processing on the "new" to us laptops. They loved it! Those children who are familiar with word did a great job coaching their partners.
Class 4 are thoroughly enjoying our class reading book - "All Fall Down". It is a story set in a village near York in the 1300's. The pestilence (plague) comes to the village.
We read the description of Isabel, the main character's, house and made a model just like it.
