Roman explorers in Year 4!

What a fantastic day Year 4 had when they visited the Grosvenor Museum in Chester to explore more about their Roman topic!  The children enjoyed all of the activities in the workshop and were fascinated by the artefacts in the Museum's galleries.  Wearing replica armour and shields, and accompanied by a Roman Soldier and his assistants, the children's day was completed with a visit to the largest Roman ampitheatre in Britain.  The whole class were an absolute credit to Broadbent Fold.  Mrs Blomeley


Roald Dahl celebration Day!

All of Year 4 made a fantastic effort to celebrate Roald Dahl Day by dessing up as a character from one of his fabulous books.  Characters from Matilda, The Witches, George's Marvellous Medicine, Charlie & The Chocolate Factory all made an appearances as well as Mrs Twit, The BFG and the Enormous Crocodile!  We even managed to write about our favourite Roald Dahl book!   Mrs Blomeley

Music to your ears!

Year 4 were extremely excited to begin their clarinet lessons last week!   Following a warm up singing session their first task was to learn how to put their clarinets together!  They are all looking forward to learning how to play this instrument from the woodwind family.  Mrs Blomeley 

Come and play with the Halle!

On Wednesday we had a fabulous trip to The Bridgewater Hall in Manchester. We had lots of fun playing our clarinets and dancing to the songs that we have learnt in Year 4. The atmospere was amazing and the children really enjoyed watching the Halle Orchastra play. 

Sports and Geography week!

Wow what a busy week we are having in Year 4! We have begun each day with a 10 minute wake up, shake up on the yard lead by our Sports Ambassadors. Already this week the children have taken part in a skipathon, zumba, cross country and sports day. The children have enjoyed exploring Japan and the culture. They have been learning Japanese symbols and can even count to 10! 


Constructing right angles!

This afternoon in year 4 we made the most of the sunshine during our Math lesson. We worked together in groups to collect sticks in order to construct a variety of shapes that included as many right angles as possible.

"Marbellous" Marble Run!

What a fantastic time everybody had at our family activity this week!  Staff and children are still talking about the fun they had in their attempts to make the most creative marble run. Quotes fom the childen included "It was a lot of trial and error but worth it in the end!"  "My favourite part was building the different components!"  "I thought today was awesome because everyone worked as a team with a smile."  Mrs Anson, our expert scientist, reported "My group showed great determination and ingenuity.

Dogs Trust

On Tuesday 13th March we had a very special visitor at Broadbent Fold. Anna and her dog Mo came and spend sometime teaching us how to be responsible dog owners. We asked lots of questions and even got the chance to watch Mo the dog show us what she could do (she was a very clever dog). 


This half term in PE we are focusing on Gymnastics! We have looked at different positions and stretches as well as how we may trave around a room.
