Welcome to Year 4

Hello Parents & Carers. My name is Mrs Kelly and I am your child's class teacher.

The children have settled in very well to Year 4 and are continuing to enjoy the responsibility

of being in Key Stage Two.  Please come and see any of the class staff

if you are unsure about anything, we are here to help everyone!

Whole school pilgrimage - Friday 24th September 2021

After collecting our ebenezer stone outside the school entrance, our annual pilgrimage took us down Causeway Side and towards

Manchester Road. We learned about local mill owner George Mallinson. He built Barbour Row for his workers.

Mrs Travis pointed out the 'witches perches' which were added to the roof of a house. It is thought that witches

would choose to sit on them, instead of going down the chimney and bringing bad luck into the house.

We then ventured past Clough Head school and stopped opposite the Methodist Church. George Mallinson paid for the church to be

built to benefit the community.  We crossed the road and headed up to Black Rock House, which is one of the few remaining buildings behind the Methodist

Church. We learned the story of Florence Lockwood, a local artist and millowners wife. Following a speech given by Emmeline Pankhurst

in Linthwaite, Florence became instrumental in the local suffragette movement. She created a banner for

local events, that is now housed at the Tolsen Museum. Our journey took us back up Causeway Side and via the church graveyard. Florence Lockwood

and her husband are buried there, so we stopped to pay our respects. Reverend Tim ended the pilgrimage with a prayer in the vicarage garden.

We layed our ebenezer stones in a cairn then went back to school for a much needed rest.

English - The  Highway Man 

Our English work has been centred around the famous Alfred Noyes poem, The Highway Man. The children have been

exploring the language used in the poem and learning how to write extended noun phrases. We received a letter

from King George III who was looking for the Highway Man so we helped him by creating wanted posters. When we finally

saw the Highway Man, we promptly wrote a letter to King George III to tell him where the villain could be found.

We hope he pays us our reward.
