Y 3/4 have been celebrating their success in coping with these difficult times. The children have not only been completing their school work at home but they have also been showing their support to the local community.
The children have been busy writing messages, prayers and drawing beautiful pictures and posters to offer support, sympathy, kindness and hope to others. Here are some examples.
We are continuing with our home learning.
In Maths, we are using a range of online resources including https://www.mymaths.co.uk/ and https://www.purplemash.com/sch/stedwardsts5 to set tasks and activities for children as well as worksheets posted to Google Classroom too.
In English, we have started our new text called ‘Leon and the Place Between’ which we will be using to inspire our writing with tasks linked tot he story posted daily on Google Classroom.

Pupils are also completing a range of art and craft activities including creating ‘frames’ for nature and also a daily drawing challenge, as well as their own imaginative ideas too.
Also, we launched our Easter Egg Display rather than our usual school competition.
We had some eggcellent entries! Thankyou for all your efforts!!
Some images are below including Egg Sheran and The Midnight Gang!
During this month, we all faced a big change to our usual school routine. A lot of us are now completing our learning at home. We understand that this is a big change for everyone so just keep doing your best. The children have all been working super hard at home. Keep it up!
During December, we worked super hard rehearsing for our Nativity Play. We really enjoyed performing ‘Hosanna Rock’ for our families. We hope that our families all enjoyed it too!
Children in Need 2019
We came to school in our own clothes and brought donations in for Children in Need.
We looked at the history of Children in Need. We discussed who Children in Need help and where the money raised goes. Also, we thought of different fundraising ideas which could help to raise funds! To finish the day, we made Pudsey Bear book marks to take home!
Year 3/4 Indoor Athletics at Trinity
On Thursday 14th November, 30 Year 3/4 pupils competed in an indoor athletics competition. They participated in events such as running, hurdles, long jump, triple jump, speed bounce, obstacle course and javelin.
Our St Edward’s Year 3/4 team achieved 2nd place and brought an amazing silver trophy back to school!
We are very proud of them all!
Anti Bullying Week 2019
The theme this year is Power for Good.
During Anti-Bullying Week, we have discussed the issue of bullying. We read a poem called ‘Power for Good’ and discussed how it made us feel.
We thought about ways which we can help to stamp out bullying for good and use our Power for Good!
Remembrance Day 2019
We spent the day reflecting on the importance of remembering the sacrifice of our service men and women during the World Wars.
Through our English work, we studied the poem “In Flanders Field”. We discussed the meaning of the poem and discussed our thoughts and feelings about it. We also performed the poem in small groups.
Within History, we researched and fact found about the First World War.
In Design and Technology, we made poppy biscuits, poppy wreaths and 3D poppies.
We completed some beautiful pieces of art work including poppy pop art, a poppy collage and we also painting a sunset background and stuck a silhouette of soldier over the top.
Take a look at some examples below!
For Black History Month, Y3/4 are focusing on the life and significance of Mary Seacole.
We will research her life to create a biography within our English work. We will look at various images of Mary Seacole’s life and discuss what we can see from the image. We will think about what is happening and what it would be like to be there. We will incorporate drama opportunities to take on a role and act out different events within Mary Seacole’s life. In music, we will learn a song based on Mary and perform this thinking about pitch and tempo and will portray her actions through dance. Within Geography, we will use mapping skills to locate her country of origin and map out where she traveled on her various adventures. In art, we will be using street art style words and phrases to show our understanding of her life and character.
Extraordinary Month of Mission
Year 3/4 held a cake stall to fund raise for the local Food Bank.
