This week we used some drama for learning with Mr. Quinn to help us with our story writing. Through our 'Rivers' topic we explored some of the species living in the Amazon River and created a story involving some of the most dangerous animals. We really developed our characterisation using some Drama and added in as much descriptive language as possible to really engage our readers in our stories.
Skipping Festival Semi-final
Earlier this month, Year 4 competed in the North Tyneside skipping festival semi-final. Class 4 demonstrated their individual and paired skipping skills, and performed a skip dance collectively together. Receiving the most points overall meant they came out of the heat in first place, winning a place in the North Tyneside final. Both Mr. Quinn and Mrs. Marshall are extremely proud of the class for their hard work and determination. Next stop - the final!

This term our topic in Geography is rivers which we started learning about this week with Mr. Quinn. Class 4 came up with some brilliant questions about what they want to find out during this topic:
"How did rivers retain their water?"
"Which river is the longest in miles?"
"Does the water cycle have anything to do with how rivers are formed?"
We can't wait to learn more interesting facts about rivers throughout the world and enhance our geographical vocabulary.
This week we made the most of the sunshine and done some topic work in our prayer gym space. We built our very own river and labelled the different parts: source, mouth, confluence, tributary. Here's class 4 working together and building their own river.
