The latest news from Year 4
What busy term it has been for our Year 4 children. Just before half term, we put on a very successful Harvest assembly and with our raffle we raised almost £300 for child refugees in Syria. This was the most money we have raised in recent years. The winner of the raffle prize, a tablet computer kindly donated by Sungard was Chloe in Year 5.
The last part of the term seems to have flown by with the children working very hard. Our visit to The Mary Rose Museum in Portsmouth was enjoyed by all - we even received an email from Mary, Head of Learning at the museum praising the children for 'their positive attitude, readiness to learn and courtesy!' She continued to say 'They were a real credit to the school, to their teachers and themselves! They were so enthusiastic and knowledgeable about the Mary Rose – a wonderful reflection on the very high standards of teaching at Calcot School!'. So well done Year 4 children! A special thank you also goes to Mr Hancock for organising the visit.
We hope that you enjoy your Christmas break and return to school ready for learning in January.
