Summer Term 2
A huge thank you to Mrs Dickson for Class 4 leavers lunch. We started with pizza pockets and chips outside then moved inside to enjoy an amazing fruit platter. As if that wasn't enough we then had ice cream cones with a choice of toppings. Mrs Dickson also made some cakes so we will have a treat to take home.
A great lunch, enjoyed by all.
Our visit to Brinkburn Priory was amazing. We learnt about St. Oswald and how he helped the people of Northumberland. He also brought St. Aiden to help teach the people of the North East about Jesus.
On our 'Lifepath' day we learnt some of the stories of Jesus, how he helped Simon the fisherman, who then became a great disciple of Jesus. We heard the story of Zacchaeus , using the little Lego models to demonstrate the story. We learnt how the monks lived at the priory, learning to make tiles for the building, growing their own vegetables for food and the beautiful writing they did copying out the Bible.
We learnt to chant in latin and many other things. A full and fun day.
On Monday afternoons Class 4 are lucky enough to have Miss Bridgewater from the NUFC Foundation coming in to do workshops.
She is helping them understand about wellbeing and health in our first session of the afternoon ,then in the second session, making us aware of how we are all different and we should celebrate and accept our differences.
Antony Wootten read some of the limericks that he had written. He made us all do the 'writers exercise' to get our brains active. We then had to daydream for 5 minutes. After that we wrote nonstop for 5 minutes, putting all our daydream thoughts on paper.
We really enjoyed our visit to the Town hall and learnt that it is also called the Guild Hall.
The children sat in the old court room, now the meeting room.
They were very interested in the punishments that were given out in the past. Before they left the children were 'branded' (using washable ink!) with the symbol of Berwick, the bear.
We have been investigating the digestive system in science. We did an activity to help us learn the different parts of the human digestive system.
Arts Week in Class 4.
We enjoyed painting stone to decorate the school grounds.
We have enjoyed doing a bit of meditation and learning how to calm ourselves down when we are worried.
We enjoyed Cosmic Yoga Halloween theme.
To enhance our school environment we planted some daffodil bulbs. We hope to see them bloom in Spring.
Mrs Dickson helped us make soup and bread. A very tasty class breakfast on Friday and soup for lunch
The first part of the digestive system is our mouth where we use our teeth to cut up and chew the food ready to travel down our oesophagus. We have to look after our teeth. Our experiment shows what happens if enamel (egg shell) is left in sweet or acidy liquid.
Class 4 joined in with the Berwick Literary Festival.
We joined a virtual meeting and had a lesson with the poet Joseph Coelho. He gave us the challenge of writing a MORERAPS poem. That meant our poems had to include a metaphor, onomatapeia, rhyme, emotion, repetition alliteration, personification and a simile.
have a look at the two poems that were read out at the literary festival from our class.
Class 4 were invited to design a picture for the Berwick Advent windows displays.
The theme was 'Christmas Journey'. Class 4 chose the journey of the snowmen on Christmas Eve ,flying to visit Santa at the North Pole from the story 'The Snowman'.
Our picture is in the window of Ideal Carpets.
Finn gave us some 'out of this world' information about the planets.
In the afternoon we had an illuminating workshop on light. We loved looking through the special glasses to see rainbows in the classroom then using the infra red light to see through black paper.
We learnt how to draw portraits. Then we made our own 'plaster paper' using ModRoc.
We practised using Leonardo da Vinci's technique of sfumato to blend the outlines in our paintings.
Our purpose was to make torches so when we have power cuts children could use a torch to read.
We had to make them a suitable size and then make our design one that children would like to use.
Unfortunately not the ones with chocolate chips.
