Welcome to Year 4 - Miss Black & Mr Lindstedt

November/December

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.

September

Welcome to our blog!

Hello everyone! A huge welcome to the Year from 4! We will be sharing our thoughts, opinions and experiences relating to topics, school events and much more. This will be updated on a monthly basis so please keep visiting.

Settling into Year 4 this September!

We have had a lovely start to year 4. I am so impressed with how smart the children look – a big thank you to parents for ensuring our children are the smartest in Sunderland. The children have helped me settle in (and helped me find my way around the school!) I have been really impressed at how hard working the children of year 4 are.

Our New Topics

This term, we are learning about ‘The Stone Age to the Iron Age’. We have found out that stone age people had it tough and would even eat each other to survive! (Charlie loved that fact!) We have looked at photographs of skulls and stone tools from thousands of years ago. We have found out lots of interesting facts about Britain and how it has changed over time. Did you know that Britain was once connected to France?

We have really enjoyed reading Stig of the Dump by Clive King. We have found out about diaries and wrote our own diary entries. It was good fun pretending to be Barney from the story. We have also written descriptive passages about Stig’s cave. Mrs Rogers has created a lovely display for our work about Stig.

We’ve also been learning about place value. We’ve spent a lot of time ordering, talking about, comparing and counting numbers. We are working hard to crack the 6 times table. We love playing number games and learning at the same time.

We have really enjoyed our visits to the aquatic centre. The swimming pool is enormous and the instructors are really cool. We’ve also enjoyed travelling on the metro each week. Swimming is such an important life skill to have so it’s great that we get to go every week.

Important dates.

Don’t forget that our school assemblies this term are on Wednesday 4th (Miss Black) and Friday 6th of October (Mr Lindstedt). It would be lovely to see you all and share a little of what we have been learning. Next month, Miss Black’s class will be telling you all about their start to year 4.

That’s all for now!

Year 4!
