Welcome to Spring Term!
 
This half term, our beautiful planet Earth will be at the heart of all of our work. Children will consider the challenges facing our planet, those which humans contribute to and how we can work together to help save our planet. Please see the attached Parent Info sheet for further information about the specific learning within each subject.
 
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 :-)

Cycling Skills
 
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. 
Roman Day!
 
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!
