Year 4 enjoyed their Big Foot Arts session on Tuesday 3rd March. They learned about the themes of romance, tragedy and comedy. They practised and performed parts of the play.
On Wednesday (12th February) Year 4 had a fantastic music morning with Mrs Cronin from PocoMusic. They learned all about marching music linked to our history topic and listened to Pomp and Circumstance by Elgar and some of the Star Wars music by John Williams. They even played The Grand Old Duke of York together as an ensemble on glockenspiels.
As part of Life Skills in Year 4, Mrs Garrity applied to the Woodland Trust to have some trees sent to school. Year 4 have been planting them around school and in our wildlife garden all week with Mrs Wood. The trees are Rowans, Hazels and Crab Apples and we hope to attract some wonderful wildlife with their fruits. During the session, the children learned how to plant and protect newly planted trees.
Article 29 Education must develop every child’s personality, talents and abilities to the full.
On Monday morning (18/11) Year 4 children had an energetic and fun session with Gemma from the school sports partnership. They learned lots of different moves including a salsa and a merengue. Everyone worked hard and enjoyed the session.
Article 24 Every child has the right to the best possible health.
On Wednesday 6th November, Year 4 children had a trip to the Refuse Cafe in Chester-le-Street. They learned about the link between food waste and climate change. This was part of our Local Environment topic for Life Skills week and the children all realised how much the cafe was doing locally to help a global problem.
