On 28th June we went on an adventure of our own. In Sandall Beat Wood we learnt the five essentials for survival, built shelters, lit fires and made 'Bannock bread' to eat. We could imagine how the invaders and settlers had felt coming to our country. In addition, we realised how difficult it was for the Famous Five to keep warm and dry in the storm. Despite the unrelenting, torrential rain, Class 4 had a marvelous time!
As part of our learning about Rivers and the Water Cycle, we were visited by Severn Trent Water. There was a whole school assembly and then Class 4 took part in workshops learning about water treatment, water usage and given a challenge to save more water.
Spelling homework: Spellings are given out on a Friday to be tested the following Friday. We are also learning topic words once a fortnight. Spellings can be practised online by clicking the link below:-Click here to practise spellings online
