Class 9 (Year 4)

Class 9 trip to Castleshaw


On Wednesday, Class 9 had a trip to Castleshaw centre in Oldham. The purpose of the trip was to learn all about rivers and how they are formed. In order to do this, the children explored the valley and found the source of the river which leads all the way to the River Mersey. Additionally, the children did a pond dip where they found lots of different animals within the river.

St Joseph's Day


This week, we celebrated St Joseph's day by doing a number of activities. As a class, we created a class prayer to Saint Joseph. We looked at some art work based upon Joseph being a zealous protector of Jesus and replicated the pictures. Finally, on Friday we invited adults in to be a part of the class liturgy that the children had created. 


Tuesday 7th February- Trip to Chester


On Tuesday, Class 9 visited Chester which is a city famous for its' Roman ruins. The children visited a museum where they looked at artefacts. Additionally, they attended a workshop where they learned all about Chester and what life was like during Roman times. To end the day, the children went on a march around Chester dressed up as Roman soldiers. We made our way to the ampitheatre where we re-enacted some battle formations. 

Friday 6th January

To mark the feast of Epiphany, Class 9 made Epiphany cakes. This is a tradition that is celebrated in various countries around the world. The child who found the 'gem' in the cake got to be the king for the day.

As part of our D and T work this half term, we are creating nativity scenes. In order to do this, we ask could you please give your child a cardboard box to bring into school. Thank you.
