Welcome to Year 4H

Welcome to the Year 4H class page. This year I am your teacher and our class is supported by Mr Jackson. This year I am looking forward to having lots of fun, working hard and learning lots of new things together. Mr Jackson and I hope to create an exciting and stimulating learning environment with opportunities for all children to learn and reflect. We also hope to equip your child with the skills needed to succeed in school and in the wider community.  To find out the topics we will be studying, visit the Curriculum page. I can't wait to see what this year brings for us all!

Today we had a session with Nicola Noble, who works for the Gateshead SSP. We had a session focussed on improving stamina and fitness levels. It was to encourage exercise at home with little to no equipment. We had a fantastic time and our hearts were racing in the end!

This half term, we will be looking at the local area. We went on a walk around the local area to find out how things have changed since Mr Jackson was younger.

As part of our Science week, we investigated a plate rainbow and recorded our observations. You wouldn’t believe what the skittles looked like when the water was poured away!

This week is Science week! We have been thinking about our plastic usage as a school and how recycling can help the environment!

 

Can you guess how many pieces of plastic - as a school - we would use in one year if we used one a day? This is children and teachers!
