World Book Day - Oh what fun we had! Can you guess the character name and costumes? A superb effort everyone and thank you for a wonderful day!
During our arts morning at the end of the first half term of Spring the children enjoyed learning all about L S Lowry and I have shared some of their amazing artwork produced. I think you will all agree - it is wonderful!
The children have been learning how to make Modroc masks. Initially we researched when the Maya's would wear masks and found out it was for festivals, death and celebrations. Typically the King would wear a leopard mask representing nobility. The masks usually had big noses, mouths and were colourful, unless it was a death mask, which was jade. The children then designed four masks and choice their favourite design. They had to think about how they would create facial features and show emotion and colour. Finally they had the pleasure of then making the masks using Modroc, which is a plaster impregnated bandage. It was messy but fun! I think you will agree the children's task was enjoyed by all!
The children have been studying the Mayas and have been learning about some of their traditions. During their celebrations they would Maya headdresses, especially Kings and Queens. They would wear flamboyant headdresses bedecked with masks, quetzal feathers, and jewels as they conjure their ancestors or perform other important rites. The Kings crafted their headdresses to look like the head of a jaguar.
The children have been learning all about Diwali and have used chalk to draw Rangoli rugs using chalk and working together in teams. Well done - your designs are amazing! Enter text...
The children have had so much enjoyment learning all about the power of electricity and then creating their own electricity game. Enter text...
The children have had an exciting day consolidating their learning - Romans. They have had battles, dressed up played Roman games and more .... A huge thank you to Mr Cadle for a brilliant day bringing all the learning alive with fantastic drama and practical activities.
The children had an amazing afternoon acting out their Roman battle skills. Can you spot the Tortoise formation? I think you will all agree what wonderful shields they all created and they all enjoyed battling against one another!
Congratulations Sam for your amazing achievement at the weekend. Sam competed in a triathlon and came 3rd out of 27 participants.

Year 3 and 4 Class News
Welcome to Year 3 and 4's class page!
Our class teacher is called Mrs. S Dixon and our teaching assistant is Mrs. Thirlby.
Welcome back to Spring Term 2021! It has been lovely being able to open our school doors on Monday 8th March and welcoming all the children back to school. It has been wonderful to see all the children engage with their friends and have fun.
This week in science we have been learning about the skeletal system and the children got to make their very own skeletons!
The children have also been leaning about the Vikings and Anglo Saxons and have had fun designing and making their very own shields.
Our topic this term is focused on history and the Viking and Anglo Saxon era.

The children in science have been considering some of the natural changes that could happen to an environment and to understand what some living things can do to survive changes. Enter text...
The children in Year 3 and 4 have had a lovely morning celebrating Rogation Service in Crowle village. Enter text...
The children have been looking at the features of a non-chronological report over the last three weeks and have independently written their own double page spread report on a chosen subject. They have worked so diligently and have created some inspiring pieces of written work. Well done Year 3/4.
Red Nose Day - fun at Crowle School
Finally, our Viking shields have been made and the children have had so much fun battling with one another - Vicious or victorious Vikings vs Savage or secretive Saxons!
The children have designed a piece of jigsaw to show how we all fit together even though we are all different. I think you will agree they have all done amazing.
Secret Students this week have been awarded to Sam, Molly Seb and William for showing that they are committed to their learning, caring and confident. We have also celebrated Dexter's amazing achievement earning his purple belt in karate and celebrating Zoe's walk.
Take a look at our amazing Viking shields, as the children worked so carefully and diligently to do their very best.
We have had fun celebrating being back at school with our friends and our furry friends Harold the giraffe, Kiki the Kangaroo and Derek the penguin. The scarf represents: Safety, Caring, Achievement, Resilience and Friendship. It was lovely to listen to the children talking about what makes a good friend.
The children as part of science, have been learning all about the skeletal system and naming the bones in our bodies. They were able to confidently by the end of the lesson name several more bones than they knew before: phalanges, cranium, ulna, radius, metatarsals, carpals, clavicle, scapula, tibia, femur, sternum, patella, metacarpals and humerus.
A big thank you to all the children in Year 3 and 4 for accessing Seesaw so competently and completing online learning. It is a different start to the year, than expected, but I would like to thank you all personally for taking the time to get to know the new platform and for completing daily tasks.
The children this week have been writing an independent short story showcasing the techniques we have been learning in class over the last three weeks to include: pathetic fallacy; fronted adverbials; power of three; alliterative phrases; powerful verbs and expanded noun phrases; complex sentences to name but a few. I could not be prouder of them. Here are a few exceptional examples of the children's story telling. Enter text...
The children have been writing a story about the Disney film 'Feast'. Here are some examples of excellent sentence stacking by our very gifted children.
Winston was used to his healthy food now.
One day something changed again; a magical, munchable, mighty meatball hit the floor and emerged into Winston’s view. Curiously, Winston followed a trail of sauce. Then he looked up. A helpful hand appeared, reminding him of the one that had helped him years ago that saved him. This one was small. This one wasn’t Dad’s. This one belonged to a baby!
What followed was a never-ending feast. A feast of love. A feast of Ice cream. A feast of joy. A feast of kindness. A feast of biscuits. A feast of Cake. By Cameron.
WALT To write effective sentences for our story
One afternoon, something changed; a marvellous, meaty, messy, meatball fell into Winston's already full bowl of food. A mini, cute hand appeared, which made him think back to the kind palm that gave him the amazing crinkle-cut crisp many years before. However, this one didn't belong to Dad - it was a baby! A feast of pink doughnuts. A feast of cheese. A feast of ice cream. A feast of snuggles. A feast of hugs. A feast of love. By Minnie
Sadly, he watched her place the green, mysterious leaf on his food again, reminding him of his place in the beautiful house. By Zoe
Last week the children were learning all about Shabbat and why it is so special to the Jewish religion. As part of their religion they make a special bread called Challah with a secret ingredient honey, which makes it special. The children in class and at home all had a go at making the bread and were so pleased by the taste that some children made more! A gallery of pictures to follow soon.
In Art we have been looking at how to draw fruit using charcoal, oil pastels and paint. In response to some of the art work we have been creating, I would like to share with you some expert examples.

Hi Isla, thank you for your messages. You are not quite the 200th messenger as there were some that were not for publishing! We didn't get much snow in Ledbury but it looked like there was a lot more in Worcestershire - I hope you all had lots of fun, This is my last day logging on to the website but I will continue to take a look at the class pages, I know you are going to have a lot of fun!

Well done Willow, that is really committed. Put a pompom in when you back after the holidays.
Today, Willow tried out dictating a story to the computer. She sat with Daddy and held the microphone, then started to talk. The computer program picked up her voice and wrote it all down for her. It did struggle with the name, ‘Arlo’ though! It then read out the words back to Willow. Thank you for suggesting this, Miss. Morris!
I'm glad you enjoyed it Athena. I have loved being your teacher.
Thank you for caring for me and for being the best and craziest teacher. I really liked hearing our song on the radio last night. I love you and miss you Miss Morris. Love from Athena x
Miss Morris I think you (again) have made a marvellous mistake in the reading section/paragraph ,since between Ella G and Miles there is no comma! Also I’m really sad
Isla, I think the cheeky elf has been in the postbox, swapping cards and envelopes!
Miss Morris I think you made a marvellous mistake because Hamish’s card has the right name on his envelope but the card says To Alexa !(!) My theory is that you realised that since Hamish and Alexa (used to be) are engaged
