Now more than ever, it is important to make sure your hands are kept clean!
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
Our main topic is about Volcanoes and Mountains.

We have freeze framed the formation of a volcano.
Here is the knowledge organiser for the next English topic of Explanation Texts.

Here is what we will be doing in Maths for the first few weeks. This will underpin everything we do this year! Please have a look at it!
Here are the knowledge organisers for Science.
Our first topic is all about sound. Have a look and read the knowledge organiser on sound. It will tell you what we are learning!
Ederle Class had great fun, placing sound monitors around the school to see which was the noisiest area at lunchtime!
No! It wasn't the staffroom!!!
They even worked out why there was a sound in Mrs Roughley's office, when she wasn't there!
The children have been learning about how sound travels and how it reaches our ears.
They wrote and performed a short infomercial on it and delivered it to the rest of the class!
PE is on a Wednesday.
Please come to school in your PE kit and green school jumper.
Mr Dunkley, from Bolton Music Service, has been teaching the children about music! Eventually they will be learning to play a brass instrument.
Until then, they are having fun, learning the different sections of the orchestra, the different instruments within the sections and learning about pulse and rhythm.
