End of Year expectations

Please find the video of Bells Ring Out (Class White's Christmas performance) on our Google Classroom page. It is split into 2 parts due to the performance lasting 20 minutes. I'm sure you will agree, that the children have, once again, shown great enthusiasm and commitment. Everyone sang beautifully, acted professionally and most importantly had a wonderful time. Thank you for your continued support.

Visit to Church

Today, we visited St Luke’s church in Brierley to ask Father Jonathan all about Incarnation and the Holy Spirit. We learnt that Incarnation means flesh and that God took on human form by sending his son Jesus to Earth. We also learnt that the Holy Spirit is part of the Trinity – The Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. We learnt that Christians are christened so that they become part of God’s family and will have the Holy Spirit to guide them and look after them. We said that sometimes the Holy Spirit can be shown as a dove or a candle (light).

Father Jonathan also allowed us to light the first candle of the Advent wreath. He explained to us that each candle counts down the days to the birth of Christ.

Please see the wonderful photographs below. 


Christmas fun! Party Time! 

Class White have had a wonderful time dancing, singing and playing lots of party games. As you can see, there were lots of happy, smiley faces. Ho, ho  ho - they also saw Santa in the playground! He had delivered the children some presents at lunchtime. Merry Christmas everyone! 

What a fabulous afternoon in DT! We had great fun learning how to assemble our car chassis in preparation for our safari Jeep design. The final design will need to be able to withstand heavy loads, be durable, practical and travel over rough terrain in the Serengeti National Park, in order for tourists to catch a glimpse at the Big Five. Let's hope the lion isn't sleeping that night and we can hear his magnificent ROAR!

Take a look at some of our wonderful artwork created for the Rotary Art Club Competition in November. Our theme was Remembrance Day. We hope that you enjoy them.

What a great afternoon, learning some basic movements for our very own flamenco dance in Spanish with Senora Britton.

Class White have been looking at identifying a variety of habitats and exploring why organisms live in different habitats. We enjoyed exploring our outside area and around the pond. Can you guess what we found?

Starting back in September 2020

For children who do not have any siblings in school, their start time will be 9.20am, lining up on the left hand side of the barrier gate. The finish time will be 3.20pm, where you can collect your child from the pathway down Beech Close at the front of school. Your child will be escorted when crossing the road to meet you. For all other Year 4 children, the start time will be slightly different and this will be on your individual letter that was sent out on 10.07.20. These staggered start and finish times are in place to minimise congestion and contact with other bubbles of children.
