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:
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:
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.
It is great to see you're already working hard to earn star table points, star table prizes and housepoints. Keep following our rules.
Please have a look at our curriculum planner below.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Mrs Craddock, Mrs Darnton and Mrs Clarke
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 have eaten our dinner, played outside and we are back in the Dance Studio and Art Room. We are all very happy and are looking forward to our supper in a while.
Watch this space!
It's a long day and we are all ready for bed. Mrs Craddock is reading us our bed time story.
Good night all!
Thursday 4th October
We all woke early (some earlier than others!) and have enjoyed a hearty breakfast.
