We love hearing all about what the Year 4 children are getting up to at this strange time. A member of Class 10 has been busy developing their baking and cooking skills, baking cakes most days and delivering them to people in the local community, including nurses at the hospital. Keep up the great work Year 4!
Here are some more photos of the wonderful home learning happening in Year 4.
Friday 8th May 2020 was a very special day as people celebrated the 75th anniversary of VE, paying tribute to the service and sacrifice of the entire Second World War generation: from British, Commonwealth and Allied Forces to evacuees and those who served on the home front. We took time to remember the enormous sacrifices that were made across the world of the people who gave their lives for our freedom and it was an opportunity for us to celebrate joyously as people did 75 years ago of the arrive of peace in Europe. As we remember 75th anniverary of VE Day we are reminded of the current struggles we face, but as we celebrate this special day let us, "Never give up, never despair" and to be filled with hope for the future.
Thank you all for taking the time to remember this very special occasion and thank you to those of you who have sent in your lovely pictures! It was wonderful to see all your lovely celebrations in the sunshine! Here are a few to enjoy, from fantastic flans to amazing decorations!

Children in Year 4 have been busy today writing poems about Spring and drawing cartoons of Viking Gods. Keep up the great work!
Thank you for sending in your photos of your home learning this week, here's a taste of what Year 4 have been up to.
Home-Learning going well for Year 4 pupils. Well done. These rainbows will definitely help to cheer people up! Thank you for displaying our Rainbow Values at home by creating them.
All of the children thoroughly enjoyed their poetry workshop today with Pete The Poet. The used a given image and their prior knowledge to create freeze frames and write poetry to a set rhythm. The children loved using the instruments Pete provided to aid the rhythm of their poetry.
Year 4 started the Spring Term with a Drama workshop led by Divergent Drama to kick off their new topic (Settlers and Invaders) by re-enacting the life of Alfred The Great. They then applied this knowledge to create a fact file about him in their Topic lesson.
In Art, we have been looking at the technique of pointillism and the children used this technique to paint a Viking long ship which were displayed in the art frames around the school.
The children have also been busy creating Viking artefacts for their homework activity which we think enhances our Topic dislays in class. Well done Year 4 and thank you to all the parents for supporting your children at home with this.
The children enjoyed performing their Good News Nativity. We are sure you all agree they did themselves, us and you as parents proud.
On the 19th and 21st of November, Year 4 pupils visited Ninesprings Country Park as part of their Fantastic Beast Topic learning. The children learnt about the water cycle and used keys to clasify mini beasts found in the river. The children also discussed ways that the environment could be improved to create better habitats for wildlife at Ninesprings.
Year 4 children at Holy Trinity have been getting to grips with using concrete resources to help their understanding of place value, particularly negative number. It was great to see the lightbulb moments when children finally grasped the concept and flew with their diagnostic review sheets. We were so proud of them! Additionally, the children were then able to link this prior knowledge to their work on sequences, explaining that no sequence ever ends at zero.
We have also been wowed by the beautiful homework that has been flying in recently, some quite literally! Year 4 children were asked to be as creative as possible and make a fantastic beast using whatever resources they could find at home. As you can see, some truly fantastic beasts have been created and children are really keen to now start writing their non-chronological reports about them.
Class 10 were visited by Mrs William's tortoises.
