Oil Pastel Art

Date: 26th Apr 2018 @ 2:00pm

We spent an afternoon learning how to use oil pastels effectively to create stunning landscape drawings of Castleton. We are really excited that we’re going to be visiting this rural landscape next week as part of our Creative Curriculum work this half term.

World book day

Date: 15th Mar 2018 @ 4:00pm

We have a wonderful time celebrating World Book day today. The children made a fantastic effort with their costumes – well done everyone. We has a great time in the hall sharing stories with other children from year 1 and 3.  It was lovely to have some parents visit this morning to share a story with the children.  I hope the they day encourages all the children to pick up a book and get reading at home!

Water topic launch

Date: 15th Mar 2018 @ 3:58pm

Today year four had a visit from Dave, a volunteer from Water Aid. He told us all about the work the charity does in counties that don’t have access to clean water or sanitation. Its was really interesting. We decided as a year group that we would like to raise money this term to give to the charity Water Aid. We have been challenged to think of interesting ways to do this. What could you think of?


Tudor holiday home learning

Date: 15th Mar 2018 @ 3:54pm

What a pleasure it was to come to school this morning and be greeted with such wonderful holiday homework. I was so impressed with all the models, PowerPoint presentations booklets. It was great to see it all! Oliver Pr even made us some Tudor biscuits from a recipe he found on line -how creative! He brought enough in for us all to share which was lovely, a tasty treat. Thank you Oliver!

Tudor gingerbread

Date: 15th Mar 2018 @ 3:53pm

Thank you so much to all the children who did their extra home learning, following a Tudor recipe and making Tudor gingerbread!

We all had a taste of it this afternoon, some children loved it and others were not so keen. It is interesting to think about how differently the Tudors lived and learn about the good they ate. I wonder if you can research any more old recipies af home!


Smarties fractions

Date: 15th Mar 2018 @ 3:52pm

Today we looked at equlivilent fractions using smarties and a fraction wall. This helped the children to see how fractions that are written differently but have the same value. We look forward to seeing you at our class maths drop in.


Ordsall Hall

Date: 15th Mar 2018 @ 3:50pm

We had a great day today at Ordsall Hall, the children loved the dressing up and meeting the Tudor charcters. It was a great way to bring the Tudor period to life. Apparently the house is haunted and some children saw the ghost of Lady Grey. I hope they all had a great day and were able to learn lots. Thank you to the three lovely parent helpers, you were great!


Measuring Challenge

Date: 15th Mar 2018 @ 3:49pm

Today in maths we had fun practicing our measuring skills. We used tape measures to answer different questions for example : a persons hieight is the same length as their outstretched arms – true or false?

Why not try at home and see what you find out.


Tudor archaeological dig

Date: 15th Mar 2018 @ 3:47pm

Today 4SH launched their new topic the Tudors, this term we will be learning all about Tudor life and exploring how the time period changed Britain forever. We started by becoming archaeologists and digging to find Tudor historical sources. We used these to explore what Tudor life would have been like and how it would differ to 2018.

The children had some great ideas, do ask your child at home about the dig.


Christmas Party 2017

Date: 15th Mar 2018 @ 3:46pm

We had a great chistmas party today. There was plenty of food and lots of fun had by all. The children really enjoyed playing games both in the hall and in the classroom. We had some very good statues in one game and a great game of musical chairs.

Thank you for all the generous donations of food. I wish you all a very merry Christmas smiley


Christmas Dinner

Date: 15th Mar 2018 @ 3:45pm

We all enjoyed a very tasty Christmas dinner today. The children all had a great time and the food was delicious.


Y4 Artist's Visit

Date: 15th Mar 2018 @ 3:43pm

Each week an artist comes into school to work with different year groups. This week it was y4’s turn and they started to make sculptures inspired by an American artist.


Earth Explorer

Date: 15th Mar 2018 @ 3:42pm

Today we had a wonderful time exploring the world with the earth Explorer who came to visit us in school. We traveled to Italy to investigate Mount Vesuvius and then to San Francisco to experience the feeling of an earthquake.

It was a great launch to our new topic What would we find in North America?

Mayan cooking

Date: 15th Mar 2018 @ 3:41pm

This the week the children had great fun making some Mayan tortillas. Based on an ancient recipe they were able to follow the instruction I hope you agree that the final outcome was good! Maybe you can try cooking at home this weekend.

Drop everything and read!

Date: 15th Mar 2018 @ 3:41pm

The children really enjoyed the moment they had to drop everything and read, we were in the middle of writing and the children were keen to start reading and quickly became focused on their books! Perhaps you could try it at home take 10 minutes a day to drop everything and read!

Sports Day

Date: 15th Mar 2018 @ 3:40pm

Well done to all who took part in sports day! It was a shame that the rain came but I am sure we can repeat something next week.

It has been a really great half term, I have  enjoyed getting to know the children in 4SH and have been impressed by all their hard work.

I hope they are excited about next term and the trip to Castleton.

Have a great half term.
