Theatre Trip 

Year 3 and 4 were lucky enough to visit The King’s Theatre in Glasgow to see ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’. The children read the Ronald Dahl book in year 3 as part of their guided reading so we took the opportunity to enrich their learning by watching the theatre show. It was AMAZING and the children represented our school brilliantly. 
One pupil said, “That was the best thing I’ve ever seen!” 

Water Workshop - Science/Geography 

The whole school had an assembly all about water from United Utilities. We learned about how much water we might use in a day and we got some tips on how to use less water. The children were very shocked about how much water we could be using daily! 
Year 4 were lucky enough to take part in a workshop which taught them even more about where our water comes from and how we can conserve water. This linked to our science learning about the water cycle and it also linked to our local geography map work. 

Year 4 have read ‘Wind on the Hill’ by A A Milne this week. They were inspired by the poem and wanted to write their own. They all chose their own focus based on nature and they thoroughly enjoyed trying to include exciting vocabulary and personification. Have a read of some of their fantastic work: 

Wheelchair Basketball (January 2024)

Year 4 had a great time playing wheelchair basketball this afternoon. The children said:


‘It was absolutely outstanding!’      ‘It was so fun and I loved it.’              ‘It was so good that I nearly fell off my chair!’          ‘I was so excited!’        ‘It made me realise that it is hard work steering a wheelchair and it was a good experience.’ 

Science - Living Things (January 2024)

As part of our 'Living Things' learning, we went on an invertebrate hunt by searching the microhabitats around our school grounds. When we found an invertebrate, we used a classification key to help identify what it was. After our search, we returned to class where we sketched the invertebrates we found and focussed on their characteristics. 

Library Opening 

Year 4 were very excited to see our brand new library and enjoy a story read by Mrs Davidson. They were amazed by the transformation!


Let's Dance 

8 children from years 3 and 4 took part in the Let's Dance competition at St Benedict's School. They represented our school brilliantly and they made us very proud. They worked so hard on a group dance, duets and solo dances and our school won! Well done Year 3 and 4! 


Mental Health Week

Children across school took part in an assembly based on Mental Health Week. The children watched a message from Ant and Dec and were reminded that it is good to talk. They found out about different strategies to help when they are, feeling worried such as breathing, exercising, taking time out or just having a giggle with friends. They completed a feeling good work out and ended with a song.
