About Us

News and Events

On 18th May Year 4 took part in an exciting maths lesson with Spaghetti Maths. In one of the activities the children had to use clues hidden around the hall to work out how many people were on the train. This involved adding and subtracting and calculating a running total. The children really loved this activity and others that they took part in. They also had to work together as a team to solve problems involving negative numbers.

In May the children in 4B had the opportunity to take part in a Worry Wizard workshop. In the workshop the children shared their worries, played some games to show things they have in common and ways they are different and considered how worries make them feel. They shared a story about a girl whose worries were ignored for too long and how this caused the worries to get bigger and harder to deal with. The children did some drama and freeze-framed the story. They had a lot of fun but also became more aware of how important it is to talk to someone if you are feeling worried or anxious.

Samples of Work

Cartwright Hall

On the 9th March Year 4 went down to our local museum and art gallery, Cartwright Hall, to take part in a workshop called ‘The Art of Noticing’. We spent a lovely afternoon looking, observing, sketching and reflecting on the artwork in the gallery. We also had the chance to have a go at some printmaking which we have been trying out in school. It was a lovely, relaxing and informative afternoon.

Jungle Book Production

We had a great time watching the Jungle Book Production that came to school in February. It was a great play with singing and dancing and great acting. Year 4 were really lucky and got to take part in a workshop after the performance. We found out about acting tricks, about the sound system and special audio effects, about the set design and artwork and also how to do different accents.

Haworth Residential

Year 4 had a fantastic residential visit to Haworth in June. We went to the Bronte Parsonage for some historical workshops and found out all about the life and times of the Bronte Family. We spent a brilliant day walking over Penistone Moor, past Bronte Waterfalls and up to Top Withens. On our last day we went to Doe Park Water Activities Centre for kayaking, rafting and high ropes.


Year 4 have been learning all about the Anglo-Saxons this term. In Art we created symmetrical Anglo-Saxon shields by colour matching with acrylic paint. We took our shields to the forest to role play getting ready for battle as fierce warriors.
