Friday 16th December - Christingle Service

Today we had our Christingle Service. Our Year told the whole school what Christingle is and why we celebrate it each year. 

Christingle means 'Christs Light' and it is a symbol of the Christian faith. They are made up of different parts and each one is a symbol to remind us of something.

The orange represents the world.

The candle reminds Christians of Jesus who they believe to be the light of the world. 

The red ribbon goes all round the 'world' and being the colour off blood, reminds Christians that Jesus died ti save the world. 

The four cocktail sticks repesent the four seasons; Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter. They have dried fruit to represent all the good things in the world. 

Each year has their own Christingle to keep in their classroom. 

Thursday 15th December - Christmas Party Day! 

Today was our class Christmas party! We started our day with a singing assembly in the hall to get us all in a festive mood!

We made Christmas decorations and Christmas cards for our families.

After Lunch we played Christmas games with Year 3 and won prizes.

We had a lovely lunch  with lots of treats and received a present from school. Miss Wright and Miss Shannon brought us something in too.

We had so much fun and all enjoyed a festive day at school. 

Year 4 Charity Toy and Book Sale!

Friday 25th November - Today our class held a charity toy and book sale to raise money for our chosen charity Diabetes UK. We held an assembly asking members of staff and all the pupils in school to donate any unwanted items we could sell. We also decorated our own biscuits with chocolate, icing, sprinkles and marshmallows! We held the sale after lunchtime and invited each class to come buy from our stall. In total we made £92 for Diabetes UK. 

Well Done Year 4!

Tuesday 8th November - For the past week our class have been rehearsing for a play all about The Romans. We practiced each day as we all had our own lines to learn and lyrics to songs to remember. We acted out how the Romans lived, where they lived and how slaves were treated. We performed today in front of the school and some of our family members were invited in to watch our play. 

Nelson Mandela    Black History Month 

Wednesday 19th October - Today we celebrated Nelson Mandela and performed an assembly for our school and families. We spoke about Nelson Mandela's life and how he changed the world. He spent 27 years of his life in prison and people protested for him to be freed. A song was written about him by The Specials and we included this in our assembly. We made our own posters and demonstrated what a protest would look like.
