Welcome to Class 4
Our class teacher is Miss Johnston.
In Class 4 we are learning lots more skills and applying them to a wider range of learning opportunities. We are also beginning to prepare for our exciting transition to Secondary school.

Children spent today, 7.7.21 learning about England’s victory in the 1966 World Cup and what the words to the Lightning Seed’s ‘Three lions on a shirt’ actually mean. A really fun day was had by everyone.

Fundraising Day : Update
Thank you to everyone who contributed to our Alzheimer’s Fundraising Day, we raised over £160 in total. Well done to Oliver, Connie, Ellie, Isla CM & William for your super fundraising ideas. We have also got some lovely gifts to take to the local care home. We hope everyone has had a lovely half term and we look forward to seeing you all back at school on Tuesday 8th June.
The children in Class 4 have been learning all about the history of the village and the fell. They’ve really impressed us with their knowledge. Why not ask them about Robert de Cockfield or who the trappers were and where they worked and why the mines were so important to the Industrial Revolution? Every child in the class achieved a special reward card for their enthusiasm, knowledge and hard work. Well done Class 4!
Fundraiser for the Alzheimer’s Society
Our fantastic team of Head Boy. Head Girl and Deputy Heads are organising a special fundraising day in aid of The Alzheimer’s Society. On Friday 28th May children can come to school in their own clothes and will be taking part in lots of fun activities in school. The team have been to every class and led a socially distanced assembly where they taught the children about what it means to be Dementia Friends. On the day every class will also be making special gifts for residents of a local care home. We will be accepting donations in school on 28th May, but if you prefer we have also set up a Justgiving page all proceeds will go directly to Alzheimers UK. The children chose this charity themselves as they felt that people in care homes and those who suffer from dementia had had a very difficult year and they wanted to do something to help.
You will need some equipment for your science activity this week. (This will be introduced Tuesday). You will need the following:
*A plastic bag,
*String or wool,
*Plasticine, blu tac or play doh,
*A rubber band,
Many thanks – Mrs Hancock

Christmas Party Day
”Class 4 enjoyed their Christmas Party on Wednesday. They played a variety of party games such as pass the parcel, musical statues and corners. The children tucked into a delicious buffet. Much fun was had by all. ”
This week has been Diwali and Class 4 have been considering the theme of light. This led to children considering how light shines through the darkness. We decided to make ‘Lanterns of Hope’ to shine through these dark days, also using recycled materials.
Class 4 worked so hard this week on the theme of Remembrance, producing poetry and water colour paintings. On Monday they also took part in an on-line workshop about Remembrance Day. Well done Class 4!
Following on from finding the injured Bat outside the other day we have been learning all about Bats and how they survive. This piece of work is by Connie in Class 4.
There have been loads of apples on the tress in the school allotment. Rather than waste them, Class 4 made apple crumbles which we have given to Cockfield Luncheon Club. We hope everyone enjoys the crumbles; the school certainly smelt lovely when we made them.
How to make apple crumble by Deputy Head girls Ellie B and Isla C-M
First we put flour, sugar , butter and oats in a bowl and mixed with our hands to make the crumble. Next you peal the apples and chop them into thin pieces. Then you put them in a tin and cover them in sugar and mix it. Lastly put in the oven for 20/25 minutes and leave them to cool.
Isha spoken by the children
‘On Tuesday last week, Isha came into our school to talk and answer questions about Islam and Islamic beliefs. Isha taught us about Mecca and how she prayed 5 times per day. She also taught us about racisism and to be aware of it because it is terrible for her to have to witness it.
We all really enjoyed seeing Isha’.
During the warm weather Class 4 enjoyed some time contemplating the sky and what it means to be a person on Planet Earth. How small we all felt! We wrote some fantastic poems afterwards.
