I'm sorry I could not have been with you on your last couple of days before the school closes. I hope you are all feeling well and positive. I am attaching some photos to this blog post with some ideas for daily timetables to keep you all busy, some fun activities you can do at home and some great websites you can all use to help you with your work or to play some educational games!
I think that this could be a great opportunity for you all to learn new life skills such as cooking, baking, drawing, painting, gardening, building or DIY. I know this will be a strange time for all of us but I am contactable via the seesaw app so please don't hesitate to get in touch if you need anything :)
Don't forget to complete your three daily activities which will be set each day starting Monday 23rd March 2020 (you could complete these during the 'academic' time on the attached timetable if you decide to follow this). I will be checking the activities each day and responding to them. I look forward to hearing from all of you!
Make sure you keep washing your hands and staying positive. I'm already looking forward to seeing you when we eventually return to school.
Love Miss Miles x

As I am sure you all know, this term the children will be studying and beginning to perform Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet.
For World Book Day the children are allowed to come dressed up as a character from Romeo and Juliet. Throughout the day the children will be taking part in lots of different activities based on the play.
I look forward to seeing your outfits.
Throughout the past few weeks, the children have been reading and retelling the story of 'The Journey'. The story is about a family who have had to flee their war torn home and move to lands afar in order to find safety and refuge. The children have written newspaper reports based on the story. They have also been writing their own version of 'The Journey'. Yesterday, both of the classes in our year group came together to read their stories to each other. The children all enjoyed it a lot and I think we have a lot of future authors in the making!
Well done everyone :)
This week we have finally planned what kind of jelly we are going to put into our jelly vessels!
The children have considered which foods would be the healthiest and the most practical.
We will post photos of our finished vessels next week.
This week we have been blessed again with yet another visitor to our classroom. As part of our 'Community' topic in RE, we have been learning about different roles people may have within out parish. We had a visit from a Eucharistic Minister and Father Michael.
Thank you for taking your time to visit our school. It was much appreciated!
This week the children have been so well behaved and I was very pleased to give two excellent awards out in assembly today. A huge well done to Riley and James for their awards!
We have also had a very exciting day as we have had a visitor from Franco the hamster! The children have been so kind and caring and have enjoyed learning all about syrian hamsters.
I hope you all have a good rest over the weekend and come back ready for another exciting week.
Welcome back and happy new year to all the parents and children of 4RM!
I hope you all had a wonderful break and are coming back refreshed and ready to learn. This half term our topic is going to be 'The Shang Dynasty'. I know that lots of us are very excited to learn all about this ancient Chinese civilisation. Thank you to all of the children who have paid so far for our 'Chinese Calligraphy' workshop, if you have not already done so please pay £2.75 to the office as soon as possible.
I am looking forward to another lovely half term with you all and can't wait to see you all make ANOTHER terms worth of progress!
Miss Miles :)
This year, our Advent Fundraiser will be raising money for people in Manchester who are not fortunate enough to have somewhere to live over the Christmas period. The money raised will help homeless people in and around our city and will provide beds, meals and toiletries to those who really need a gift at this special time of year. In our class, one caring young man has collected donations from his street and raised a huge £30 for the homeless with his younger brothers. An absolutely huge well done to you Bentley.
Thank you to everyone else who is bringing / will be bringing donations in over the period of advent.
