Welcome to Year 4 - Miss Black & Mr Lindstedt

March

Hello everyone!

Hindu workshop.

We were so lucky to be visited by Indri, who travelled up from Nottingham to tell us all about the Hindu religion. We learnt lots of interesting facts about the religion, took part in a Hindu wedding and learnt a Hindu dance. The children looked fabulous in their Hindu costumes and really enjoyed dressing up and having their faces painted.

Music Extravaganza

The children from year 4 who were involved in our Musical Extravaganza did brilliantly. I was so impressed with their musical talent. The year 3 & 4 choir sounded lovely and the solo singers were so brave to sing in front of so many people.  Well done to the saxophone players from year 4 who really impressed the audience.

Our New Topics

We have been reading Charlie & The Chocolate factory. The children have had lots of fun pretending to be characters from the story. We have also been learning about persuasive writing and have looked at adverts and the techniques they use to sell different products. We created our own chocolate bars and used these skills to make our bars of chocolate sound as delicious as possible.

World Book Day

World Book Day was great fun. It was lovely to see so many children dressing as their favourite story characters and a lot of thought had been put into some of the costumes.

Hello everyone! Happy new year!

Pantomime!

We had a great time at the Customs House in South Shields watching the pantomime. The actors were so funny and the singing and dancing was brilliant! It was also great fun singing on the bus!

The Centre For Life

What a brilliant time we had at the Centre for Life. We learned so much about dinosaurs and fossils. We created our own fossils and had a fantastic time on the ice rink.

Our New Topics

We have been reading The Iron Man. We have really enjoyed the story and have rewrote parts of it, as well as pretending to be journalists and reporting on events from the story. It was great to make an iron man ( a big thank you to the parents and carers who helped with this on open day.) We have been learning about multiplication and division in maths. We are slowly getting better at our multiplication tables.

This term we are looking forward to finding out about The Romans and Roald Dahl’s revolting rhymes.

Important dates.

Don’t forget that our school assemblies this term are on Tuesday 30th January (Mr Lindstedt) and Friday 2nd of February (Miss Black.) Friday 2nd February is also open afternoon for parents. It would be lovely to see you all and share a little of what we have been learning. Don’t forget school is closed on Monday 19th February for a teacher training day. On the 21st March, we will be having a musical performance day which Year 4 will be part of, so make a note in your diaries!

That’s all for now!

Dinosaur came to town!

During the month of October, a gigantic dinosaur and his friend Mike came into school to talk about the egg that he had accidently left in our nature garden. We had the opportunity to ask questions and get our photo taken with him. During the month of October, a gigantic dinosaur and his friend Mike came into school to talk about the egg that he had accidently left in our nature garden.
