Welcome to Year 4

Dragon Days

After weeks of hard work  rehearsing  for our end of year play the evenings finally came when we performed in front of our family and friends.

Both nights were amazing in the wonderful hall at Kings Hawford School. We all acted magnificently, sang beautifully and read perfectly. It was a very proud moment for our parents and teachers. All the hard work paid off – Well done everyone!

 

Sports Day 2019

What another great Sports Day! The sun shone, the house gazebos were set up and everything was ready.

The Year 4 house captains led their houses in a mass school warm up, to start the proceedings.

There then followed running , skipping, sack, egg and spoon, beanbag and dressing up races for each of the year groups. It was great fun and very competitive.

The final races for the children were the House relay and Key Stage 2 Ombersley Marathon.

While the scores were added up our young visitors had a running race and the Mums and Dads were persuaded to do the sack race, by their children.

Finally the results were announced and Ruby house won. Well done to Ruby house, everyone who competed and all the parents who came and supported and cheered. It was a lovely morning made even better by our DJ from Kings Hawford school. Thank you. 

Cluster Sports

Ombersley had a very successful morning at the Cluster Sports 2019 taking part in different events against Hindlip First school and Tibberton First school. After a morning of exciting races all the scores were added up and Ombersley came first!

Well done to all the children who took part in events throughout the morning. There was some great support too from all the children. 

Festival of Flowers and Music

As part of the Festival of Flowers and Music, which will be taking place in St. Andrew’s Church, Ombersley from June 28th to July 5th, some of the children were chosen to take part in a flower arranging workshop.

Mrs Packer came and showed the children how to make two flower arrangements. We were very impressed with her flower arranging skills!

Hopefully, some of the children will have a go at making one of these arrangements so that we can display them in the church during the festival. We are going to be singing there too.

Year 4 Cricket competition

Well done to the Year 4 children who took part in the Droitwich School’s Cricket competition, at Droitwich Cricket Club.

The children fielded really well and there were some great 4s scored in the batting. 

 

Tri Golf competition

Ten children from Year 3 and 4 were chosen to take part in a School Games Level 2 Tri Golf competition at Worcester Golf Range. There were six other schools there from across the Droitwich and Worcester area who had all won smaller competitions.

The children had to complete six different activities and then all the scores were added up. And we came second, narrowly missing out on first place! What an achievement for such a small school! The children were amazing and used all the skills they had learnt in their golf lessons this year. Well done! Mrs Hobbs was very proud of you all. 

Key Stage 2 Cricket

The Key Stage 2 children have enjoyed working on their cricket skills this half term, with a coach from Worcestershire County Cricket Club.

In the final session there was a house Cricket competition. It was great fun and all the children enjoyed it.

Bell Boating

What a fantastic day year 3 and 4 had today Bell Boating. We rowed all day; from Vines Park all the way to Ladywood! It was hard work, but each boat worked as a team and helped each other to keep going.

We stopped for lunch at Ladywood Lock and experienced what it is like to go through a lock.

The weather was beautiful all day too. well done everyone. Excellent collaboration! 

 

Awful Egyptians theatre trip

What an amazing end to our Ancient Egyptians topic! we all enjoyed an afternoon at Shrewsbury theatre watching A Horrible Histories performance of Awful Egyptians. It was a long journey; but well worth it!

There was lots of funny bits, disgusting bits and plenty of scary bits, especially in the second half when we wore 3D glasses, which made it all come to life.

We all had a fantastic afternoon and as always made our teachers very proud with our beautiful behaviour!

Easter at Ombersley Church

Year 4 followed the footsteps of Jesus during the Easter story at Ombersley Church. Starting at Palm Sunday, washing their hands (not feet) for the last supper, waiting in the Garden of Gethsemane, listening to Mary talk about her son and looking into the tomb. Thank you to all the helpers at the church for making the story come alive. We learnt a lot and thought about the Easter Story in a different way.

Jump Rope competition

What a great time the skipping club had at their first ever Jump Rope School Championships!

The children had been well trained by their coach Stacie and took part in 30 second speed, 30 second crosses, 30 second jumping, 30 second double dutch speed, long rope challenge and at the very end performed a whole school skipping routine. All the children were amazing and thoroughly enjoyed the whole day.

Finally at the end of the day medals were awarded to all the winners. Ombersley won an amazing 4, 1st place medals and 5, 3rd place medals and that didn’t include the two won by Mrs Hills! Congratulations to everyone.
