As part of our RE work this term, we have been learning all about the Hindu faith.  We have investigated how Hindus worship, what their core beliefs are and how they celebrate the amazing festival of Diwali.

Kirtida, from the ISKON Hindu temple in Newcastle, visited our school to share the Diwali story with us and, last Friday, we visited her temple to find out about the many ways Hindus worship.




Challenge Based Learning

Year 4 have been learning all about different triangles, quadrilaterals and angles.  As our challenge, we had to find as many different shapes and angles as we could on a giant pattern that had been laid out on the floor of the hall!

Watch out! There’s a thief about!

Year 4 got such a shock when they returned after lunch to find that the treasure they had found on a recent trip to Plessey Woods had been stolen! Luckily there was a message from their explorer friend Meg; she had left them a secret brief case with some instructions. Class 4 had to use their maths and geography skills and follow 4 figure coordinates which helped them to solve clues and find out where Meg was hiding and where the stolen treasure was. We then use our coordinate skills to send a secret message back to Meg; we hope to hear from her very soon so stay tuned!
