Year 4 started the week with a shared story called ‘Something Else’. This was the name given to a creature by his ‘friends’. We shared our feelings and thoughts.
‘It doesn’t matter what we look like but what’s inside that counts’, Skye
‘We all have different hair colours, eye colours, skin colours’, Hasan
‘We have different likes and dislikes; personalities’, James
‘We have different jobs, religions and family members’, Harjan
‘We are all different. If we were all the same, it would be boring’ Lillie R
We enjoyed a range of activities this week, particularly making and eating our fruit kebabs!
Today we have had a wonderful success in WINNING the South Tyneside Tennis Finals, held at Boldon LTA.
Our 8 fantastic tennis players won 27, drew 3 and lost just 2 of their matches. Their hard work, dedication, enthusiasm and determination to succeed has certainly paid off.
They were resounding winners having done superbly in their challenges too, 2nd were Lord Blyton and 3rd Mortimer.
It is a tremendous achievement. Well done to all of the pupils, I am so proud of you all. Congratulations!
Well done Year 4!
Some of the children took part in a great opportunity to take part in Level 1 Bikeability. They passed with flying colours and in record time too. The children were presented with their certificates, badges and booklet on Friday 4 December 2020 in our Class Achievement Assembly by Mr Rogers.
Well done, we are so proud of you!
What a busy week for Year 4!
In English this week, we worked as a team to discuss our spelling pattern ‘cian’ and played a loop game. The children have also completed writing a letter to Grandma Krank (from George’s Marvellous Medicine). They self edited their own work as well as peer marked. Some great discussions with one another and lots of positive praise. Some children volunteered to share to the class too!
In Maths, we began to look at coordinate grids. We tried hard to remember to rule ‘Walk along the ground, then climb the ladder’ to help us with the x and y axis.
We took part in the Google Meet session with Year 6. We listened to their speeches and voted for our House Captain and Vice Captain. It was great fun and lovely to see so many faces across the school on our screen.
Year 4 took part in the Santa Paws competition. We have had a great response from our families. We would like to THANK YOU for your support. This is supporting a great cause and we know they will be thrilled by the time and effort put in by both the children and the adults at home.
The children in Year 4 are beginning to feel all Christmassy.
We have begun our Christmas activities- stitching a Christmas stocking. Yesterday, the children practiced threading their needle. They persevered well- well done! You can see the children practicing their running stitch before applying this skill to the fabric.
This year, World Science Day 2020 is about the importance of science in our lives.
Today, Year 4 looked at the ‘parts of the plant we eat’. We shared a range of food types, discussing our thoughts and sorting pictures/ words into the correct section. The children found this very interesting and we had some surprising answers!
HAPPY HALLOWEEN from YEAR 4!
Year have thoroughly enjoyed the day. They began by greeting friends and having a chat!
We took part in crafts, a quiz and enjoyed a Halloween movie, Casper.
A Year 4 pupil is very talented at drawing (all free hand). Great work Mylo!
Look out for Mylo’s future work – take note of his signature!
Happy Halloween everyone!
Year 4 have been challenging themselves with all four maths operations in Arithmetic. We took part in a range of games looking at mental strategies for addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.

Year 4 have had a very busy week…
The children explored the different features of what makes a good persuasive advertising poster.
We used the peg boards and loom bands to create symmetrical shapes with our partner. Can you spot which ones are symmetrical and show the line of symmetry? Can you spot any that are NOT symmetrical?
We even attempted to create a symmetrical repeated pattern later in the week.
This week we explored the differences between conducting and insulating materials. Firstly, we made a complete circuit, followed by introducing different materials such as paper clips, rubbers, plastic rulers, metal spoons to name a few. We made predictions, experimented and explained why they were/ weren’t good conductors/insulators.
