Have a look at what we have been up to…
After putting on 3 fabulous performances of our Year 3/4 Summer play, Hoodwinked, the children were treated to some performance poetry, courtesy of the Theatre Royal in Bury. We watched a sweet and witty play about a pirate with the children being given the opportunity to ask Justin, the actor, questions about his life and work afterwards.
In Science we have been exploring separation processes including sieving, filtration and evaporation. The children were given a mixture of sand, water, stones and salt and used their knowledge of the different processes to work out the best way to separate it back out to the original materials. We are now waiting to see how long it takes for our filtered water to evaporate, leaving behind the salt we dissolved in it.
We had fun decorating our mini clay pots with Ancient Greek designs. Some designs focused on repeating patterns while others show scenes of daily life. Given the size of the pots and the intricacy of the designs, the children had to be very precise with their painting. These pots will be showcased at the Summer exhibition at All Saints’ church on 13th July.
Our Friday afternoon concluded with our third session of badminton. The children have shown some impressive skills, learning the various grips and techniques and some even got a rally going this week! Apologies for my poor photography of moving objects!
Each Friday selected pupils will have the opportunity to talk about some of their achievements outside of school. We recognise that our children have many talents outside of academia and our Friday Showcase is the perfect time to showcase what we’re proud of.
Iris is an accomplished pianist and has recently received her Grade 1 in Piano. She proudly showed us her certificate and explained what the process involved. Well done Iris!

Reading is so important for your child’s development. We encourage all parents to read with their child each night, if possible. Why not check out the ‘100 Books to Read in Year Spring timetable23/4′? You’ll find many of these titles in our class reading corner or your local library.
100-books for Year 3/4
The National Curriculum sets out 109 words that children should know by the end of Year 4. These words will form the basis for our weekly spelling test.
