On Friday 20th September, Year 4 visited Jarrow Hall to introduce our Anglo Saxon topic. The children were very intrigued to learn lots of facts and information from that era. We carefully handled replicas of artefacts, used during that period of time and thought about their uses. We looked at and talked about the farmland and uses of each animal as well as the life of a soldier. We found out more about everyday life in Anglo Saxon times in the replica village.
On Monday 8th July, Year 4 pupils visited Durham Oriental Museum to find out more about life in Ancient Egypt. We had a fantastic time handling real artefacts and discussing what they were used for. We performed a weighing of the heart ceremony where we found out more about the after life. We even saw a real Egyptian mummy which is over 2000 years old. We all had an amazing day!
In 4NW we have been discussing how we are all different but that we are all equal. We are unique! We created our own jigsaw piece and made on complete jigsaw for 4NW. We drew and wrote things that mean a lot to us – our hobbies, our families, our favourite things. Every jigsaw piece was different.
On Friday 10th May, year 4 enjoyed finding out more about the Ancient Egyptians with our visitor, ‘That History Bloke’. We learned all about mummification and the after life and even mummified our own dead body! We also wrote our names using hieroglyphs using special ink.
16 year 4 children attended Boldon Tennis Club to participate in a tournament against 3 other schools. Our behaviour and attitude was excellent throughout the tournament and our A team were lucky enough to place 2nd overall.
Year 4 worked with a company called balletlorent. We had a great time and used movement and dance to tell part of the story – The Lost Happy Endings.
On 23rd April, 4NW visited the Open zone at The Word. We had a great time using Wedo to build lego characters and make them move. We also filmed in front of the green screen to make a program all about Yellowstone National Park.
Well done to all our pupils who achieved a bronze or silver attendance award this morning. What a great turn out of parents and carers also!
On Tuesday 2nd April we held our Easter Assembly. Each year group had a question they had been working on relating to Easter.
Year 3 – What do Christians remember on Palm Sunday?
Year 4 – Why is Lent such an important period for Christians?
Year 5 – Why is The Last Supper important to Christians?
Year 6 – Why are Good Friday and Easter Sunday the most important days for Christians?
Children shared stories, pictures and work they had been working on in class to answer their question.
Class 4NW enjoyed performing a poem from A Midsummer’s Night Dream as part of our Shakespeare workshop.
