Year 4

KS2 School Games Day.

As part of School Games Day, the whole of the school enjoyed a variety of activities both in class and outdoors. Following a fantastic ‘Wake up, Shake up’ school assembly in the hall, our aim for the day was to show that anyone can take part in sports and that children can be successful in any game they choose to play. A great day was had by all. Here are some of the activities years 3, 4 and 5 took part in. Well done everyone!



year 4 – The Aztec Number System

As part of year 4’s Aztec topic we have explored the Aztecs very own number system. We discovered that their number system was made up from 9 characters. Similar to the Romans the Aztecs combined the different characters to create more numbers. Year 4 were able to take these 9 characters, read more numbers through working out the combinations and then also solve maths word problems. Fantastic work year 4!

Year 3, 4 and 5 have fun at the beach

Last week, years 3, 4 and 5 set off for the beach at South Shields despite a weather forecast predicting some rain.  We were prepared for all eventualities however we were very lucky to have fine weather all day!  After building sandcastles and digging tunnels we had lunch and then ventured into the sea for a paddle. In the afternoon we played games including football and cricket as well as having fun with the parachute.  A great day all round!



Year 4 – Africa Day

Yesterday in school was Africa Day! A chance for children to dress up in bright colours and explore the fantastic continent of Africa.

In Year 4 we had great fun taking part in lots of African themed activities. The children designed their own Kente cloth, created their own tribal mask and used coordinates to locate the different countries in the African continent.

African Day

African Day

African Day got off to a great start with a whole school assembly led by Mrs Innerdale.

Mrs Innerdale told us a little bit about the continent Africa and then showed us where Cameron will be working next year and the types of activities he will do.


Lots of fundraising activities took place throughout the day … penalty shootout, cake sale, raffle, guess teddy’s name, guess the number of sweets and nail painting. It was a great success!

After many African themed activities in class, the children then came back together in the hall for a final assembly. The raffle prizes were drawn and winner announced.

Well done and thank you everyone!
