Welcome to Year Four
Hello to all the new year four children from Miss Munro and Mrs Curry! We hope you all have had a lovely Summer holiday.
We are every excited to introduce you all to the topic for this term, 'Artbot'. Throughout the Autumn term we will be looking at how to complete and make electrical circuits. With this in mind I am hoping you can use your knowledge of circuits and electricity to design and make an Artbot, an electrical device that can draw on paper. Using a similar principle your next task will be to design and make a moveable vehicle which can go up a small slope.
Other fun things for this term will be swimming (happening every Thursday afternoon) and having the opportunity to work with people from the Newcastle United Football (NUFC) Team to work on writing tasks, as well as personal, social, health and education activities (PSHE). Every Tuesday morning you will also have the opportunity to learn how to play a musical instrument, the ukulele. Towards the end of the term you will also be taking a trip to Cragside, the first house in the North East to be powered by electricity.
