Year 4 have been practising their persuasive writing skills this week. After some work on formal and informal language, they drafted letters to Mrs Giblin asking if they can work outside when the weather is hot and sunny. Some representatives from the class then hand delivered one of the letters to Mrs Giblin in the main office. This afternoon the children have received a letter from Mrs Giblin saying that they can work outside on sunny days next week. Good work Year 4 - your letters must have been very persuasive!

Year 5 entered a competition back in November for Antarctica Day and created lots of wonderful flags. Some of our designs were chosen as the winning entries and they have been photographed in Antarctica by some of the British Antarctic Team team!! Look closely at the photos and you will see a local seal who really enjoyed looking at them.

Throckley Primary has had a wonderful time embracing all things international as part of Express Yourself - the North East Festival of Languages! The children in Reception enjoyed a French puppet show led by Nathalie Paris and featuring some memorable maths. Year 3 chose to celebrate their favourite book, ‘Toutes les Couleurs!’, by retelling the story to each other using their very own word bank. Year 4 followed the exploits of the inhabitants of the Isle of Paradise, vividly brought to life by Théâtre Sans Frontières (an award-winning international touring theatre company based in Tynedale, Northumberland). They learned a new song extoling the foods they love, and then created a poster reaching out in the languages spoken in the North East. Fantastique!

Year 6 are currently reading ‘Holes’ by Louis Sachar as their class book. Last week they took part in an exciting crime scene lesson which helped them to plot the sequence of events in the book.
Breaking news - Green Lake has fallen victim to the dangerous outlaw, Kissin’ Kate Barlow! This morning the deputies at the Green Lake Sheriff’s Department had a crime to solve. Using the evidence from the scene and their knowledge of the sequence of events that led up this tragedy, they were able to identify key moments that led to the transformation of the local school teacher, Miss Katherine Barlow, into the most notorious outlaw in the West (Kissin’ Kate Barlow).

Year 6 broadened their understanding of Census by interpreting data and constructing line graphs that showed the increase in the UK population every 10 years. Year 6 pupils looked at data taken from census each year and plotted the data onto a line graph. Using their line graphs, they answered a few questions which required them to interpret what they could see from the data.
