Although it sounds easy - staying home can be a real challenge for anyone. Please try to stay positive while you're at home. Below is an activity to keep you smiling. Think about all of the things you dream about doing once we are able to go out and explore. They can be anything from going to visit a family member you have missed, walking up pendle hill or even going on a nice sunny holiday. The choice is yours - we look forward to hearing about your plans! 

Miss Brown



Please view our folders at the top of the page to see what we have been up to in our topics. Any videos uploaded will go right to the bottom of the page (under year 4) please check! We enjoy showing you what we have been doing.

Quick reminder: PE is on a Thursday and full PE kits must be kept in school 
                                       Homework is set on a Thursday to be returned the following Tuesday

It is important that every child reads aloud to someone older at least three times a week for 10-15 minutes per read. After this, every child MUST have their reading record signed by an adult. Also, please could you ensure all children are practising their times tables up to 12.

We have a lot of fun and exciting learning to do and we hope that all of our class have had a well-earnt rest and are ready to come back to give 100% in everything they do.

Year 5 have had a careers fair morning where we got the opportunity to speak to lots of people inlots of different careers. We spoke to the RAF, photographer, scuba-diver and a pharmacist. We also did different activities exploring a range of careers. 


This art week we have been looking at junk art. Children have brought in junk from their home to create their own junk monsters. Children worked in teams to create their monsters with help from their parents.
Thank you to all of the parents for coming and spending time with us the children really enjoyed it. 


10 of our year 5 have been out of school to Padiham Green and Whittlefield Primary Schools. 10 children from those schools visited our year 5. We took part in some team bonding activities and discussed what it takes to be a good friend. Lots of our children came out of their comfort zones and impressed us with their ability to make new friends.


We have had an amazig story teller visit our class and share some traditional tales with us. This had got us excited for world book day.



Year 5 have been on an amazing trip to Jodrell Bank, we discovered so much about space we have been blown away by how much knowledge our class have. We visited the planet paviliion where we found out lots about the Solar System, the star pavillion where we did lots of experiement and we also visited the huge Lovell Telescope. We had such a great day.               


This term we are doing gymnastics - here are some of our displays we have created.

Fun run!
Thank you for sponsoring our children for their fun run!

Attendance treat

Lots of children who had school attendance 97% or above got to enjoy their attendance treat. An afternoon of laughs with a magic show. Well done to all of the children who make the effort to come to school on time to learn. 

Library opening

We welcomed the new term with the opening of our new school library. All children had to chance to go and take out a new book of their choice. Year 5 really enjoyed locating their book and sitting on a comfy chair for a read.

Year 5 are continuing to use and love the library.
Reminder: Books are due back every 2 weeks - they are able to take the book out again if they are not finished. 

We have been very lucky to have a skipping workshop to practise and learn some new skipping skills. Some of us even got to showcase them in our assembly. There are some videos on this page of some of our tricks!

For Anti-bullying week we have been discussing the importance of being kind, as well as speaking up if ourselves or someone else is being bullied. We have worn odd socks in support of anti-bullying. 
We have had a visit from PC Sange - We asked some really good quesions and found out lots of information about bullying, cyberbulling and the police force.

We have started our new PE topic 'Dance' first we learnt the Samba! 
We then moved onto learning Street dance, African dance and then Bollywood. We practised for weeks before performing our finished piece in our bollywood outfits (see video at bottom of page). 
Thank you to coach Amy for all of your help and listening to our ideas!

We have had a fun filled art week. We have been looking at pop art and Andy Warhol. We have created our own paintings and collages. We have also had lots of parents in class to help us, thank you to all of the parents who took their time to watch their children learn. They really enjoyed it!

Also, Zainabs sister got involved and created her own pop art collage!

CONGRATULATIONS, Zainab Arif on your headteachers award, the first in our class!
Zainab completed a fact book about our topic Anglo Saxons. Outstanding effort Zainab, well done!

Already in september we have had a visit from a real author E.R. Riley, some children in our class purchased his books.

In Miss Browns friendship group children have been discussing and taking part in random acts of kindness. We have created a kindess book with all of our ideas, we aim to do at least 2 a week. Children are really enjoying being invovled.
We have had lots of great suggestions such as helping their parents cook and simply holding the door for someone and giving them a smile. 

We did a comminity circle where we show our empathy and listening skills. Children can only talk when holding the rolling pin to make sure we're listening to other people. Children have shared something good in their lives either past or present.

Thanks for your participation Deonta (Y6), Alex (Y6), Hamza (Y5), Ahyan (Y5), Rimsha (Y5), Hadjra (Y3) and Muhammad Esa Khan (Y3)

Everyday we do 15 minutes of skipping and prastice our techniques we learnt in our skipping workshop. We are really enjoying it! Please see our class skipping video at the bottom of the page.

Plant a tree day!

Here is Hamza our wonderful classroom architec, every wet play time Hamza creates some form of building out of paper. Super creative Hamza!

Miss Browns friendship group - we gave advice to each other on our final session. We spoke about what it takes to be a good friend, what to do if we have any troubles and how we can support other children in our group. Thank you to Rimsha, Ayhan, Deontae, Alex, Hajra and Muhammad Esa Khan for taking part.







Previous year...

Courageous Cheetahs

Welcome to our classpage! Here will include some snippets of our learning, details about important bits for the week and any other information that can help you to view the wonderful learning in our class! We are always very proud of our learning, so make sure to check back each half term to see what we have been upto!

Class Teacher: Miss Wade

Teaching Assistant: Miss Harvey

We have had a fantastic half-term and a brilliant start to the year. We have been lucky enough to get the chance to earn an extra half an hour of playtime! We really enjoyed it.


Well done to Abdullah for being our Year 4 Spelling Bee winner. All of the children in our class tried their absolute best in entering the Spelling Bee, we are incredibly proud of you all. It isn't easy to stand up infront of your class and spell some tricky words, so well done!

Here is a picture of the audience watching on as two brothers went in to battle to become the Year 4 champion!

Thank you to Mr Gaughan and Miss Lee for your hardwork in our class during the Autumn term, we hope you enjoy your new classes! We will welcome Miss John in to our class in the New Year.


Our school week is packed full of activities; below is a timetable of useful information to help our children bring important resources.

Monday: We have swimming fortnightly, starting from the first week back after half-term. Swimming kits should be brought on a Monday morning and taken home the same day, to ensure they are clean.

Tuesday: Homework given out the previous week should be completed in your homework book and returned to school ready to be marked! Don't forget your PE kit on a Tuesday too! It's important this is in school for all of half-term and taken home during the holidays to be washed.

Wednesday: Today is a good day to bring in your reading record to be looked over and any reading books to be changed. Reading books should be read three times a week for around 15 minutes at a minimum.

Thursday: Homework will be given out on a Thursday for you to take home and complete. Don't forget to bring it in by Tuesday!

Friday: Bring your 'Friday-feeling' smile and ready to finish the week off with our celebration assembly!


Happy New School Year!

It was fantastic to see you all on the first day ready for the start of an exciting new year in Year 4!  What a positive start we have had with everyone already working hard on their times tables and spellings. We also have some new members of the class who have joined Team Reedley this year. Everyone has settled in really well. 

We are all looking forward to having a great year together that combines learning, challenges and fun!

End of School Day Arrangements

Children in Year 4 are only allowed to walk home with written permission from parents. Otherwise children should be collected from the area at the far end of the playground.  Please help us keep the children safe by remaining at the bottom of the slope and making yourself known to a member of staff when your child puts their hand up to say you have arrived. As we get to know you this should be much quicker!
