It’s all Greek to me!

A huge thank you to all of the family and friends of our Year 4 children for attending our Greek WOW morning. It was great to see so many of you at school. We all had a super morning painting our Greek vases, writing hidden messages to each other using the Greek alphabet and even tasting Greek food whilst being blindfolded. Have a look at the photos for some fab reactions.

Exploring Ancient Greece

This week, Year 4 visited Palace Green Library to take part in an Ancient Greek workshop. We had fun handling real Greek artefacts, exploring the museum gallery, building our own temples, playing traditional Greek games and even performing our own Greek play. A super way to kick off our Ancient Greek topic!

Super Scientists!

Groovy Greeks

We started our new topic this week…The Groovy Greeks. As well as writing the myth of Theseus and the Minotaur, we spent some time researching our own lines of interest around Ancient Greece. Why don’t you ask us what we found out?

Inflatables Fun!

Years 4 and 5 had a fantastic, fun-filled afternoon at Hetton School where we had a taster of a variety of inflatable activities. We climbed, bounced, balanced, jumped, aimed…you name it, we did it!

Class 1DS have been busy planting flowers and vegetables!  After reading 'Billy's Sunflower' by Nicola Moon, we decided to plant our own seeds and see how tall they would grow.  We have also planted some beans to see if we can grow a beanstalk as tall as...

World Cup Football Frenzy

As part of our WOW week in Year 4, we invited our family members in to school to work alongside us to design our own World Cup football strips. Some of us chose to base our designs on England, some on the teams we picked in our class sweep and some on ourselves. We think they have turned out great! C’mon England!

Our Country

This week in Geography, we explored globes and atlases to learn more about the country we live in. We were able to identify, recognise and find the countries in the U.K and name the capitals of those four countries. We discussed the surrounding seas and labelled our own map. We also used the World map to find other countries around the world, including our friends in New Jersey, America.

Bubble Football Bonanza

Year 4 had a fun-filled morning playing bubble football as part of our topic on the World Cup. We rolled, bounced, flipped…some of us spent most of the games upside down! Our smiles, giggles and hair showed how much we enjoyed ourselves!
