Welcome to Year 4!

Year 4 is a really exciting year at Hill View Academy as so much fun and interesting learning takes place. We begin with bug hunts and a visit from a Viking, from there we move onto finding out more about sound and designing and making our own cross stitches. Captain Cook and his voyages followed by the Digestive system are just some more of the exciting topics that we encounter. Physical activity and the outdoors are also important to us, with the opportunity to take part in a two night residential stay at Dukes Wood House. Books and reading play a big part in our year group, we read some as a class, others in groups and by ourselves too. Our teachers love to read as well, and you will enjoy listening as they transport you to lands far away with their book choices. I think you will understand why we all love Year 4 so much!

The Greath North Museum, Newcastle

In the first half term of school year 4 were lucky enough to visit The Great North Museum in Newcastle. As part of our Science topic, All Living Things, we participated in a workshop all about how to classify animals. We got up close and personal with some real specimens!

We had a great time and even got to explore the museum, from Dinosaurs to the Ice Age and from Ancient Egypt all the way to our very own coasts we found lots of interesting and unique artefacts.
