A big welcome back to you all! We hope you've had a lovely summer. 

 

We are very excited about teaching you again in Year 4 and we've already got the term off to a good start with all our rules and routines in place. Here is some information you will find useful as you settle in to the new term:

Teachers

As well as Mrs Craddock and Mrs Darnton, you will also have the opportunity to be taught by a few other teachers too. Here are some of the teachers you will get to know this year:

  • Mrs Watson - RE
  • Miss Chalmers - Times tables and spelling tests
  • Mrs Pawson - computing and French
  • Warrington Wolves coach - tag rugby
  • Dave - PE
  • Broomfields' swimming teachers
  • Jackie - dance
  • Mrs Clarke is our teaching assistant every morning

 

Rules

You have worked very hard to create our rules. They are based on our school values so we will be really concentrating on friendship, kindness, love, respect and trust. To this you have also chosen to add honesty and focus.

 

Rewards

It is great to see you're already working hard to earn star table points, star table prizes and housepoints. Keep following our rules.

 

Curriculum

Please have a look at our curriculum planner below.

 

PE

Don't forget your swimming kit for 14, 21, 28 September and 12, 19 October. Keep you PE kit in school and remember to bring trainers and games kit for rugby each Tuesday this half term. We will be enjoying plenty of expertise from Jackie our dance teacher at Tattenhall.

 

 

Home Learning

English and Maths - handed out on Wednesday, back in Monday.

GAPS and spellings - handed out each Friday, back in Wednesday.

Spelling tests - Thursday.

Tables tests - all tables, in and out of order and related division facts.

Projects will come home each half term.

 

Residential

Tattenhall Residential 3 - 5 October. 

Art and dance linked to Lewis Carroll.

If you get a spare moment, Daresbury Church has a stained glass window dedicated to 'Alice in Wonderland' and a museum with information about Lewis Carroll and his links with Daresbury. It would be amazing if you could fit in a visit before we go to Tattenhall.

 

Diaries and reading

Please use our new-look homework diaries. Any messages from us or from you will need to go on the left-hand page and all reading at home or school needs to be recorded on the right-hand page. You need to read daily and record this in your books. Bring your diaries and reading books to school daily. We are aiming to get you on our star readers' board. Please remember to get your diaries signed each week too.

 

School website

As always, please keep reading our class page on the school website and look out for links and activities that we put on throughout the year. Don't forget to use Purplemash and Activelearn. The logins are in your homework diaries.

 

We look forward to a happy year of learning.

Tattenhall Diary

 

Wednesday Morning:

After we had put all our cases and bags on the coach we set off for Tattenhall.

It wasn't very far until we arrived at the centre and it was time to unload our bags again.  The staff at Tattenhall made us very welcome and showed us around the rooms and the playground areas.  They also told us about how to keep safe while we are here ... No jumping on the bunk beds!

We think the social area is amazing and LOVE the bean bags, although if we sit on them and bounce little balls do squeeze out of them!  We have enjoyed sitting and chatting, playing games and reading.  Soon we'll be going to the Dance Studio and the Art Room to work with Jackie and start our canvases.

10 Wonderful Facts About Lewis Carroll

Lewis Carroll's real name was Charles L. Dodgson. The pen name came about by taking his own name, Charles Lutwidge, translating it into Latin - Carolus Ludovicus, reversing the names and retranslating them into English - hence, Lewis Carroll. Born in Cheshire, Charles was the third of 11 children.
