Here are our Favourite Five books for this half term:
Week 7 - We made it to the final week of half term! It's been a long haul but we did it, and we have done some fabulous learning in the past 7 weeks looking at natural disasters. We carried out the eruption experiment on the volcanoes we made ourselves. The children absolutely loved it. We have also had our final sessions of forest schools for this year. Mr Rayner has been fabulous and we simulated some of the natural disasters in the forest. I hope you all have a lovely week off and get plenty of rest. See you in a week!
Golden book winners are Lilly and Alex! Hand writer of the week is Jake!
Week 6 - We have had the best week ever! The Year 4's had an amazing time on Wednesday afternoon when we went to Ackworth School for the Tim Henman tennis event. They were amazing representatives of our school and made me so proud. We even made in onto Look North. The Year 3's also behaved impeccably back at school with Mrs Rhodes... superb! We have finally fished our paper mache volcanoes which have been a long messy job. Lots of resilience was needed!
Golden book winners this week are the whole class and Lydia who we will miss in our class as she moves to her new school. Hand writer of the week is Maisie.
Week 5 - Another gorgeous week for Tiger Lily class! We have made our own volcanoes and learnt all about the structures of them. We have also mastered co-ordinates in forest schools and played our own life size game of battle ships. We even built our own grids!
Our golden book winners are Alex and Bradley. Our hand writer of the week is Lily Ella.
Week 4 - This week has been short but sweet for Tiger Lily class. We have been getting some practice in on the new tablets this week and have made Powerpoints all about natural disasters! We are going to present the presentations to the rest of the class next week. Friday was very exciting as it was number day. We enjoyed playing bingo against the rest of school and even had a TT rockstars tournament against Mr Finch's class!

Week 3 - Wow we have had such a busy week. Our maths challenge this week was time! We are all practising so hard to become superb time tellers.

Please can I ask all YEAR 4 children to bring back their slips for the tennis trip ASAP so we can look at booking transport. Also please remember appropriate kit and footwear for forest schools on Thursdays. Thank you!

We had a lovely online music lesson with Miss Garside and it was great to see some of the children who are at home! It’s been a great week for us and we are looking forward to March 8th when we can all be together again.

Welcome back! I hope you have all had a lovely Christmas and are looking forward to coming back to school. This half term our class topic is Ancient Egypt!
Week 5 - Wow, what a strange yet wonderful half term it has been. We have finished our Ancient Egypt topic and made our own Egyptian death masks. They look absolutely amazing and took a lot of hard work and elbow grease. We had a fantastic day at forest schools this we, we conducted an experiment where we made water filters and saw which groups would make the dirty water the clearest, it was so interesting and we really enjoyed. I would like to that all of the children for working so hard this half term and being so resilient even when times have been tricky. I can’t wait for the day when we are ALL back in the same classroom together. Have a lovely half term and enjoy some well deserved rest.
Week 4 - In Tiger Lily Class we have had another smashing week. We even had a snow day! Can you guess who made the biggest snowman? All of the children are doing a super job and I can’t believe how amazing some of the work I’m receiving is! Please can children who are in school bring a newspaper and a kitchen roll tube by Monday for our DT project. Thank you!

This week has been lovely and Miss Taylor is so proud of us as always.
