The Five Pillars of Islam

In RE, we are continuing to learning about Islam this term, looking at the difference it makes for Muslims to follow the Five Pillars.  In groups, we designed pillar shaped  posters to demonstrate our knowledge of Shahada (Faith), Salah (Prayer), Zakat (Charity), Sawm (Fasting) and Hajj (Pilgrimage).

Welcome back Year 4!

Class 3 and 4 have had a great first day back getting stuck into their new book, Alice in Wonderland. Children used persuasive language to present their point of view in a debate about whether Alice should drink the potion left for her. Children also made delicious jam tarts, Cheshire cats and rewrote a blurb for the book. We look forward to the rest of this Potion themed term!

Reminder – please bring in a glass bottle or jar for Monday.

Camp fire

Marshmallows and bread dough cooking on the fire. We have learnt how to set up and start a fire as well as how to keep safe.

Winding down

  • We have just finished our last activity and are calming down before packing and leaving.  The children have had a really busy day and are having a drink and snack.  We are all really proud of each and every child for their resilience and effort.  They will be tired, hungry and a bit dirty but have had a fantastic experience.  We would like to compliment the children for their fantastic behaviour.  Many thanks to the staff who have given up their own family time to make this an unforgettable experience.

A quieter night

Year 4 residential adventurers have had a peaceful final night under canvas.  We have a few more activities in our action packed day before we say goodbye to SSG.  We have been visited overnight by the sock fairy who has mixed up most of our socks!! Let me know if you find a Darth Vader pair!!  We hope to be home on time and will keep you updated via text message.  See you all soon.
