Learning together, growing together

Spring Term

We imagined our lives in 2030 when we will be 20 or 21 years old.  Our aspirations include doctor and dentist, artist, printer, author and illustrator, magician, zoologist and dog trainer, lawyer, extreme cake maker, train porter, driver, rugby player, police officer, mechanic and engineer.  WOW! Can you guess who chose which profession?

Our inventions - proud to be part of the Great Exhibition of the North!

Water, water, everywhere

How could we survive without water? 

Will you ever see the water you drink again? 

Why is the River Tyne so important to Newcastle?

What happens to the food we eat?

Just some of the exciting questions Y4 will be hoping to answer this term! 

Science and Geography - Water, water, everywhere HOMEWORK

We made our 3D Mothers' Day cards by cutting, shaping, joining and finishing a paper basket holding daffodils with paper spring stems - something different but made with lots of love.
