Welcome to Year 4 at New Hartley First School!
Mrs Lyndsay Gates

Mr Nick Benefield
Class Teacher (Thursday and Friday PM)
We have had tremendous first week back in year four! I am so proud of how well the children have settled into their new class and routines and many members of staff have commented on how sensible year four have behaved around school, proving themselves to be excellent role models for our younger children.
I will be posting regular updates to our class page, sharing with you all the exciting things which we get up to in year four :-)
Happy Harvest from Year Four
Year 4 did an absolutely super job during our cycling skills sessions. I saw some tremendous examples of resilience, determination and courage. Bring on the Spring for our off site bikerides!
NU Outreach Team Workshops!
KS2 had a fantastic day this week, exploring STEM subjects with scientists from Newcastle University. A very inspirational day, encouraging children to ‘dream big’ when considering their own aspirations.
Wow! What an amazing day we had to introduce our new History topic of The Romans. The children looked fantastic in their fancy dress and had great fun exploring how and why the Romans built roads in Britain. They then recreated this layering technique using biscuits, custard, smarties and custard cream biscuits! We learned about Roman gods and goddesses and the children used plastic tubing to explore the engineering behind the Roman aqueducts. We can't wait to learn even more this half term!
Take a look at what we get up to in class!
