⭐Behaviour -Steps to Success⭐ 

We have introduced our new behaviour system in class where children aim to reach the 'Sky is the limit' zone to show outstanding behaviour or maintain their good behaviour in the 'Green for Growth' zone. Look out for a certificate on a Friday to commend your child if they manage to end the week in green or blue zone.

Introducing our Year 3/4 Wellbeing Warriors.

 

Wellbeing Warrior Pledges

Tuck Shop

After our first 'Talk It Out Tuesday' session about playtimes our Wellbeing Warriors met with warriors from the other classes and discussed ideas to make playtimes more enjoyable. One idea they reported back on was the introduction of a class 'Tuck Shop'. Everyone liked the idea and Year 3/4 enjoyed their first playtime tuck last week (7th May). 

 

Tuck shop will be every Friday, with a snack being offered each week at the cost of 30p.

Children can bring their money in any day of the week and give it to a member of staff for safe keeping.

(Monday - Thursday children can bring their own fruit snack in for morning break).

Summer Garden Party End Of Term Celebration.

Unfortunately, pouring rain stopped us celebrating the end of term outside in the sun the way we had hoped but we didn't let that dampen our spirit! We loved spending the whole day having fun with each other. We danced, played party games and enjoyed plenty of jam and cream scones.

Children's Art Week

We created some great art this week influenced by the Pop Art movement. We were inspired by our recent study of Liverpool during our Local Area history work.

Sports Day

We had a great afternoon of fun races at our KS2 Sports Day.

Elmer Day 2021

 

Elmer helps us remember how important it is to be ourselves so during the week Year 3/4 celebrated what made each of us unique by making our own Elmer full of words that describe different members of our class.

On Thursday we wore bright clothes and spent lots of time having fun with our friends who we love because of those unique qualities.

What a boring place the world would be if we were all the same!

Mental Health Awareness Week (10th - 16th May 2021)

During Mental Health Awareness Week children were encouraged to spend as much time as they could outside, connecting with Nature. In Year 3/4 we used natural resources to help create some amazing self portraits and wrote affirmations to remind ourselves that we are special. We also spent time on the yard sketching the things we could see.

On Friday children were invited to dress to express themselves and strike a pose in colourful clothes.

Our self portraits.

Stress Awareness Month

This April to combat stress we got outside and enjoyed the sun as much as we could. Activities included meditation exercises, planting flowers to make the space outside our classroom bright and beautiful, making stress balls and sensory bottles and some mindful colouring.

Healthy Habits

Year 3/4 have been enjoying a 5 week Healthy Habits programme with Active Sefton. During which they learnt the importance of a healthy, balanced lifestyle. They looked at healthy eating habits and the importance of daily exercise.

World Earth Day

On World Earth Day we made the most of the bright sunshine and took our learning outside. We planted beans and worked in pairs to create posters warning people of the danger our earth is in and advising on ways we can help to keep it safe.

Science Week

We Are Scientists: Science Investigation

 

Which member of staff stole the pies?

White powder was found at the scene and 6 members of staff were found with white powder.

We had to  help the police to catch the culprit by testing the reaction of each powder when added to a glass of coke.

But we didn’t want to blame the wrong person so our investigation had to be fair. We used the same amount of powder, the same amount of coke and timed our stirring of the mixture and the reactions.
