Year 4 had a lovely visit to The Great North Museum and The Hatton Art Gallery.
We spent our time sketching some of the exhibits in the museum.
We had a guided tour of the Art Gallery and took part in a drawing workshop.
Year 4 attended a Multi Skills Festival at Temple Park Leisure Centre. The children took part in lots of mini games including skittles, long jump, dribbling, throwing and hoopla. Great fun was held by all and the children were impeccably behaved.
Our Year 3 and 4 children loved performing their Christmas performance to all their parents and carers.
Year 4 had a very interesting visit to Jarrow Hall.
We enjoyed finding out about about an Anglo Saxon Village. We found out about the farm and sampled riddle telling and traditional biscuits around the fire in the Grand Hall.
We dressed up as warriors and recreated our own battle.
We told the story of Beowulf and looked for Anglo Saxon treasure.
Year 4 went for a visit to All Saints Church as part of their RE studies.
Year 4 had an amazing visit from That History Bloke Richard. We had a great session learning all about Egyptian life. We had great fun finding out how to mummify a body which included removing major organs from the body and storing them in Canopic Jars. We even had our own class Pharaoh. We handled artefacts and finished our session writing Egyptian hieroglyphics. We are now Egyptian experts.
We enjoyed our visit and learnt lots of new facts.
In Year 4 we found out about different bridges. We looked at pictures of famous bridges and wrote about the materials they were made from and their uses. We investigated how we could join art straws and lolly sticks and how we could make materials stronger. We used all of this research to design and make our own bridge.
