Class 4

What are we Learning?
Class 4 ventured south to Sunderland in January with the superb robot they built from scratch to take part in the regional competition with other schools from all over the North East. They had the opportunity to test their skills and driving abilities, their navigation and coding techniques too. We had such a fun day and came away exhausted but feeling like we had really got to grips with what it means to control the robot and how to navigate a tricky field. The children were excellent role models and so enthusiastic and engaged. Well done Class 4! 
Class 4. Summer Term Update.
The hard work and plenty of fun continues at Newbrough in 2024. Class 4 have been busy; making pizzas, sewing quilts, reading Shakespeare, exploring animal lifecycles and visiting the Theatre Royal in Newcastle. We were lucky enough to get tickets to see 'The Boy at the Back of the Class' this week and really enjoyed the production which was emotional, engaging, funny and perfectly pitched at Year  5 and 6. We then made a flying stop at the Hancock- Great North Museum before catching the train home. A brilliant day out! 
July has been really exciting in Class 4! 
We have had local potter, Jess Cooper, visit us as part of a project on regeneration. We are making some amazing art works which will be part of an exhibition at The Sill in September around the theme of regeneration of the Sycamore Gap. Have a look at the photos on here to see more about our day with Jess. We tried three techniques- pinch pots, coil pot making and most excitingly, throwing a pot each on the wheel which Jess brought in. Now the pots have been taken away to be fired and she will return with them in September and we will spend time glazing and decorating the pots. More information on the exhibition is to follow! 
Autumn 2023- Class 4 update. 
Class 4 have had such a busy, productive start to the year! 
We have read, and loved Goodnight Mr Tom as our text in English and written some superb pieces inspired by the book.
In Science we have been learning all about the circulatory system and carried out various experiments to find out what affects our heart rate.
Our Art topic was all about landmarks and we had a fabulous trip to the Quayside in Newcastle and crossed the Millennium Bridge to visit the Baltic Gallery. We collected lots of ideas and inspiration for our own printmaking project back at school.
And FINALLY... we have had a brilliant residential! 3 days in the stunning surroundings of the Lake District spent walking, canoeing, ghyll scrambling and toasting marshmallows- blissful!
