PE with Manchester United Football Foundation.
We have been learning about Jill Townsley and some of her sculptures. She makes a piece of artwork, using the same object but repeated. Her structures are then left to collapse in their own time. We decided to make a volcano out of clay balls. We learned how to score and attach the balls to make our volcano. In true Jill Townsley style, our volcano collapsed!
We will remember them.....

Welcome to Y4 Ederle Class. We have been very lucky to be named after this famous person. She has had such a huge impact on people's lives.
Gertrude Ederle was born in New York City on October 23, 1905. She was a champion swimmer by her late teen years, and she competed in the 1924 Olympics.
In 1926, she became the first woman to swim the English Channel; her record-breaking achievement brought her a period of fame and acclaim. During her swim, she damaged her hearing, so she spent the rest of her life teaching deaf children how to swim.
Please read the information below. If you have any of these symptoms, phone the NHS on 111 and isolate.
You MUST phone school if any of your children have these symptoms.
Thank you for your help, Mr Lockwood
welcome to Ederle Class. I'm Mr Lockwood your teacher. Let me tell you a bit about myself!
I have been a teacher at Haslam Park for 10 years and think it is THE best school in Bolton, or else why would I work here? The staff and children here are great and make sure everyone feels safe and welcome.
My favourite subjects are writing and History. I love learning about life in the past. When I am not in school, you can find me either on my bike, in the gym or playing rugby for a local team!
I can't wait to get started and enjoy learning about new things with you all!
If you need to get in touch with me, then you can do that via Dojo. I will get back to you as soon as I can.
See you soon,
Year 3/4 Lockwood
