Super Science Week

We have had an amazing, spectacular, supersonic, dynamic and revealing Science Week in year 4. Lots of research, data analysis, creative craft, exercise and poetry performance have made it one of our best cross-curricular topics ever. The children have worked really well in their Health Club teams. Thank you to the adults who have come in to give talks on Sports Engineering, Physiotherapy and Nutrition.

Year 4 Times Tables Tournament

We are excited to announce the launch of our brand new...

 Year 4 Times Tables Tournament. 

As you've all worked so hard throughout the year to improve your recall of times and division facts, we thought it only fair to allow you the chance to shine. At Bradway Primary school, we strongly believe that you have strengths in different areas of the curriculum and we are very honest and open about the difficulties and challenges we all face with some aspects of our learning. That is why we always talk about Building Learning Power and celebrate effort and progress as well as attiainment. 

Now that the year is drawing to an end, it's time to see who are our times tables champs.

We will have the following categories:

Girls only quick fire
Boys only quick fire
Girls and boys mixed quick fire
Speed test
Most progress since the start of Y4

Just like the Spelling Bee, this will be a fun but relaxed competition and no one will be forced to enter. There will be prizes for winners and runners up so get practising those times tables facts. 

More information to follow...

Summer is here at last

It must be summer because learning can move outside  the classroom. Here are the children playing giant battleships using their knowledge of co-ordinates and direction.     

Bugsy rehearsals are really taking off and we have some really talented children in Y4 who are showing real potential for the next couple of years and beyond. Please check the blog for rehearsal times after school next week and a reminder that costumes should be brought into school in a named carrier bag by next Friday at the latest.

Finally a fond farewell to Mr Robb, who has been a School Direct student in Mrs Heap's class. We shall miss him and wish him the best of luck in his new post at Ballifield School.

Enjoy the sun but don't forget to apply suncream and bring a water bottle and sun hat next week.

Our Thornbridge Adventure

Anyone could be mistaken for thinking the year 4 children had their residential on the Costa Brava a couple of weeks ago. The weather was amazing and great fun was had by all. It's not very often we get to 'Rescue the Duck' but this year was different. The children faced every challenge with great enthusiasm and grew in confidence as a result. Climbing, riding bikes, den building, problem solving and rambling were just some of the activities we got up to. However, the social aspect of living together with friends, sharing mealtimes and playing until the sun went down shouldn't be underestimated either. A fantastic time was had by all as the photos below who. Back in the saddle now for the final half term. Those children in Bugsy will be gearing up for a great performance. Letters for tickets for those in the cast will be going out this week.

Our City - Sheffield

The children had an amazing time on their trip to Sheffield to launch our new topic. They met the Lord Mayor, interviewed members of the public, played snooker in the Winter Gardens and saw lots of other famous Sheffield sites.
