We can't believe it's almost half term already!
Year 4 enjoyed the fun run and especially enjoyed beating Mr Burton as he attempted to run. Some seismic activity was apparently located in the Whitley Bay area - Mr Burton is adamant that it was an earthquake and not caused by him!!!
Both classes have been working hard on Varjak Paw in English, exploring characters and settings amongst other things.
In Maths, we have changed groupings and the children have enjoyed their work on graphs and data handling. We have some budding market researchers in our midst!
As we move beyond half term, we hope to keep the children outside for PE and games.
Remember to wear the correct kit (plain white t-shirt and blue shorts please)
All children need to remember to bring a water bottle into school to use. Please do not bring juice as it becomes sticky when spilled. For hygiene reasons, we cannot provide cups.
Enjoy the rest of this week and then half term.
It'll soon be SUMMER!
Year 4 are learning Handball with our Access Coaches.
It is a fast-paced game that is popular across Europe and is in the Olympic Games.
Maybe one of us will make it there!
Year 4 at the Youth Village
Year 4 have arrived safely at the Youth Village (Emmaus Village) near Consett. The children are very excited about their rooms and have already started their activities.
FOLLOW US ON TWITTER @ starseatweets for updates and pictures. We will update this page when possible.
(Belated) World Book Day
Today (Thursday 8th March) we celebrated World Book Day. This was held over from last week when the snow stopped us having fun. It was great to see so many children in costumes to show their favourite book characters. Well done.
Jolly Hockey Sticks
Well done to the children who represented our school so well at the hockey festival on Wednesday 24th January.
Despite being up against older (and bigger!) children, our team were tenacious around the ball, fearless in attack and strong in defence. Whilst we lost 2-0 to the eventual winners, St Mary's, we drew both of our other games, scoring once in each.
A final position of 3rd is something rather special.
The children received special mention from other teachers, not only for their playing, but also for their sporting spirit and impeccable behaviour. They were a credit to the school, their parents and most of all themselves.
On Thursday 0th November, Year 4 went to Siemens in the Cobalt Business Park to learn about electricity.
What a fun time we all had!
Dahl Day Dressing Up
To celebrate Ronald Dahl day on Wednesday 13th September, we were asked to dress up in yellow, or as one of Ronald Dahl's characters.
Year 4 certainly made an effort.
HAPPY NEW YEAR
Welcome back to school.
Here are some pictures that show we have already started to work hard in Year 4!
First day back, and hard at work!
