Ash Randall a Football Freestyler came into school on Thursday. He showed us some of his skills and then taught us how to do some freestyling.
We were really impressed with his dedication to his job. When we asked the children what they had learnt from his visit Cyprian said "Practice, Practice,Practice!"
Mason said "Never give up, practice makes perfect".
Once again the children behaved exceptionally well and all of them tried their hardest with the skills - never giving up.
Year 4 have had a fantastic start to the new term. On Tuesday we visited Armley Mills museum in Leeds and experienced what it would have been like as a child working in the mills. The children behaved superbly and the staff there commented on their enthusiasm with the activities. We were really impressed with the efforts they had made with their costumes and they certainly looked the part. Photographs will be added at the beginning of the week.
Please look at the Homework page below. Spellings will now be added at the start of each half term so you know what to expect over the next few weeks.
