Welcome to Year 4 2022-23
Welcome to Year 4 we are looking forward to an exciting year ahead. Both classes have made an excellent start and it was lovely to meet so many parents at our meeting. For those of you unable to attend, please see the powerpoint we used attached.
Class Letters 2022-2023
The Great Orchestra Experiment
Wow what a day! 4E had an exciting time getting on the bus into town with all their instruments to go play with lots of other Nottinghamshire schools and a youth orchestra. The children played and sang along to music all around the world and even heard an opera song being performed. What lucky children!
Perlethorpe River Trip
4E had the most amazing day visiting the River Meden in Perlethorpe, set in the beautiful grounds of Thoresby Estate. We had a interesting morning on a mini-beast hunt on an investigation over whether we would find more animals in the grassland of Thoresby Estate or in the woodland. We then had a lovely afternoon getting our feet very wet looking for aquatic life and measuring how wide and fast the river was. The children were very well behaved and learnt lots. A trip we will definitely remember even if it is for the soggy feet!
A visit from Michelle Reader
Year 4 had the most amazing day with Michelle Reader making sculptures from recyclable materials. Michelle
has been making recycled sculpture for over 20 years. Through Michelle's art and sculptures, Michelle highlights the links between the things we consume and the destruction of wildlife habitats, whilst at the same time portraying the beauty and wonder of the natural world.
Lakeside Moon Rabbit come to Haydn
We were very fortunate to watch the 'Lakeside Moon Rabbit.' The children learnt all about the stories that surround Chinese New Year and even saw three instruments from China. The children thoroughly enjoyed themselves and are now on the lookout to see if they can find a rabbit on the moon themselves tonight!
Matilda Themed Day
In preparation for our visit to see 'Matilda the Musical', we had a very special visit from the previous West End Matilda, Lily-Mae Evans. Lily-Mae discussed her time on the West End and even taught the children her dance in the musical from the song Naughty. The children had a great time and may even show off their moves to you tonight. Hopefully just the dance moves not the naughty part!
Emma Carroll Author Event - 29th November 2022
To mark 100 years since the discovery of Tutankhamun's tomb, we attended a live zoom event with over 200 other schools hosted by Emma Carroll: author of our class book 'Secret's of a Sun King'. She read us some extracts from the book and spoke about the discovery of the tomb by Howard Carter 100 years ago today!
Haydn Bake Off 2022
We had a great afternoon in 4E. From bakers to tasters, we all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and definitely had no shortage of cake! Well done to Inaya and Tibbie who were our star bakers!
National Poetry Day
For national poetry day, we focused on writing a poem all about Ancient Egyptian pharaohs. First, we learnt all about Pharaohs and some famous pharaohs such as Tutankhamun and Cleopatra. Following this, we wrote a poem describing what a pharaoh looked like.
Ancient Egyptian Topic Work
During out Ancient Egyptian topic, we studied Ancient Egyptian jobs. We then became Ancient Egyptian bakers and jewellers, practising our skills in making Egyptian flatbread and necklaces.
It is almost impossible to believe we have almost reached the end of our year! It has been an absolutely amazing year in which I am so immensely proud of all the children. We have had the most exciting of adventures, embraced all of our learning with enthusiasm and are absolutely ready to tackle Year 4 with such positivity.
We have said goodbye to old friends and welcomed new ones to our class whole heartedly. Thankfully we have been able to go on several trips, where the children have behaved impeccably and were a credit to the school. Sports day was a fabulous occasion with the children very much focusing on team work, taking part, sportsmanship and above all having fun.
The entire year really has flown and it's hard to believe that it is almost time to say goodbye. It has been an absolute pleasure getting to know the children and I will very much be keeping an eye on them as the continue their journey throughout Haydn x
To celebrate Haydn Arts Week, Year 3 decided to meet the 'Fashion and Textiles' brief by being inspired by Disney's 'Sneakerella'. We designed, made, decorated and then evaluated our very own pair of shoes! The results were spectacular! The children displayed their work for a Haydn Art Exhibition, where we were able to look round each year group to see what they had created from Arts Week.
Spring 2 : Our Bodies
It is hard to believe how quickly this half term is going! Once again, it has been action packed with the children showcasing just how much they have grown and developed over the course of this year. I am so proud of all their hard work and determined attitudes. We were all so excited by the Emma Raducanu Trophy Tour, getting up close to such a special and shiny trophy as well as our trip to St John's church in Carrington.
Spring 1 : Light and Shadows
It's hard to believe we are almost half way through this half term already!! The children have been working so hard, and thoroughly enjoying all the aspects of our new topic.
A particular highlight of our term so far is learning the Ukulele. Our weekly lesson is so much fun and everyone is doing a fantastic job. I am so proud of them all
In celebration of the Beijing Winter Olympics in 2022, we invited the New Age Kurling Roadshow into school to introduce the children to Kurling. Our class was split into 6 teams representing countries from the Winter Olympics and then they played a series of games against each other before finishing the session with a Class v Teacher Challenge. At the end, we had an awards ceremony where everyone got get a special wristband and the winning team will got special gold ones! Well done team Germany, who won all their games!
The children behaved impeccably for our visitors, took turns brilliantly and showed absolute sportsman like behaviour. I was so proud of them, and they even earned 2 treat squares towards our next treat day!
Autumn 2 : Rocks and Volcanos
Once again the term is whizzing by with so much learning, fun and even wiggly worms!!! Everyone is working extra hard to understand the new concepts they are being taught and showing great perseverance skills when it is sometimes tricky!
CLASS LETTERS - 3T - 2021-2022
Welcome to 3T!
We have had an amazing start to Year 3 and it has been a pleasure getting to know all of the children. The first half term whizzed by with an action packed start to the year and already we have got busy learning all sort of new skills and knowledge after our well earned holiday!

Home Learning & Return to School
1S, you are all AMAZING! You have been working so hard on your home learning and I am so incredibly proud of you all! (see the photos and videos below!)
Now that we are able to invite more children back to school, we are really excited to see lots of you very soon!
We will continue to upload weekly home learning planning for those of you who are returning to school.
If you are returning to school, you do not need to complete the home learning for the week that you are in school. When you are at home the following week, you will need to complete the home learning set for that week.
This will follow on from the learning we have been doing in school and wherever possible, we will send resources home for these weeks on the Friday that you are at school.
We cannot wait to see you soon!
I would LOVE to hear from the children and find out all about their exciting home learning adventures!
Please let me know when sending photographs or videos of your child whether you would be happy for these to be uploaded to our class page as a celebration of their learning and so that the children can see what one another have been up to!
Photos and videos will be added below!
Look after yourselves and stay safe
Stay safe, from #TeamHaydn
Creative Quarter Challenges
Keep an eye on the Creative Quarter page ( https://www.haydn.nottingham.sch.uk/creative-quarter/ ) on our website for weekly art challenges that you can all get involved in, inspiring websites and links.
Home Learning Pack
In addition to the weekly home learning planning and resources, here is another resource to use for ideas if you want to supplement the class home learning packs.
Week beginning 20th July
This week is the last week of school!
For those in school, we will be breaking up on Wednesday, for staff INSET on Thursday and Friday.
I have therefore provided a short list of ideas for things you can get up to at home for the last three days, as if we were in school, we would be doing lots of lovely, fun things together and enjoying our last few days as a class!
Take the next 3 days to reflect on the whirlwind of a year we have had together, start thinking about your exciting new adventure into year 2 in September, and celebrating what an amazing job you have done at keeping motivated, enthusiastic and working SO hard during the last 17 weeks!
Week beginning 25th May
You have all worked so unbelievably hard the last few weeks and we are SO proud of you!
Make sure that you take some time this week to enjoy the sunshine and reflect on your home learning journey so far.
Keep smiling, stay safe!
Mrs Sudborough & Mr England xx
