Tickets will be available from Tuesday (20th March), 50p adults, children free.

No under5’s to the evening performance please. All pupils will have seen the concert during school time.

Mulberry and Oak Class


Rainforest Concert


We are sure that the children have told you all about the songs we are busy learning for our Rainforest Concert. This will be held on the afternoon and evening of Tuesday 27th March. We will send more details about times in a later letter.

We ask that the children dress up like animals – but we really do not want you to go to any expense with regards to costumes. We thought if they had animal print, striped or spotty items they could wear these, or if not brightly coloured but plain tshirts with leggings or tracksuit bottoms. Perhaps some of them have dress up items that might be appropriate such as wings or tails.

We have been learning about the Rainforest so would love the children to be brightly coloured parrots, butterflies, tree frogs or tigers or orangutans! We will make masks or headpieces in class so it would be great if they had an idea of what colour/clothes they could wear so we can try and match this. If they could bring their outfits into school by Monday 19th March, this will give us time to see if we can add wings, antennae or tails!


Thank you for your support in this, the children are very excited!


The Year 3 & 4 Teams

Week beginning 12th March

Homework  -  Term 4

We are sure the children have told you, but as we are so busy preparing for our Rainforest Concert we have said that they can choose to learn their songs in place of our usual homework.

The homework books are in class and the children have the option of bringing them home and completing the set tasks if they wish.

More information about the concert will follow soon.


Week beginning 5th March 2018

This Week's Spellings

Fire Walker!

Fire Walker! 1
Our amazing George completed a fire walk last week! He raised lots of money for charity too! Well done George, we are all very proud of you!!

This week's spellings 5/3/2018

This term we have been working hard learning about grams and kilograms. We have used different scales to weigh things and have improved our estimation skills.


If you get a chance, why not try to make a cake or bake some biscuits and use all your new knowledge to measure out the ingredients carefully! Let us know how it goes!


Remember to look carefully at the scale and work out what each interval (little mark) is worth.
