Welcome to Ash, Sycamore & Beech Class! 

We’re really excited to have the children back in school with us! Our classes are taught by Mrs Silverthorn (Ash), Mr Moon (Sycamore) and Mrs Timms and Mrs Eggleshaw (Beech).  We’re lucky enough to have two Teaching Assistants Mrs Morris and Mrs Ross supporting year 3/4.We also have Zak from Bristol Sports coming in to coach the children.  We’re extremely keen to get started on our new curriculum!

Terms 1 & 2


Welcome back to school!  This term in year 3/4 we are answering the big question ‘How can we help people belong?’  There are two strands to this topic.  We begin with a geography focus, following clues provided by our ‘hook’ and using the journey of the local river into Yate to help us explore what Yate used to be like, human and physical features as well as learning about the structure of rivers.  In term 2 our focus changes to look at history in terms of people who have travelled to Bristol, in particular the windrush generation.  We will consider, using historical sources, how these people were treated and how we can help everyone in our diverse community to have a sense of belonging, no matter where they have come from.  We look forward to inviting parents in toward the end of term 2 to share in a carnival experience with us to celebrate our learning and bring our school community together.
