Year 4 were learning about business through a workshop entitled ‘Our Nation’, led by Gurpreet Jagpal over the course of two afternoons. Gurpreet shared his university and business background with the children at first, then through a series of games, discussion, critical thinking, teamwork and a project, the children could understand how the geography of our nation could have an impact on business. We are grateful to Gurpreet for giving up some time from his busy schedule to share his insightful knowledge and experience.
The geography, formation, habitat and industry associated with rivers, has been studied by Year 6 children. Rivers can have such an impact on the landscape of the country.
Year 4 had a great time going to Marsden and Sand Haven beach for a cross-curricular trip. We were looking at human and physical features at the two beaches because we are learning about coastal features in Geography. We kept an eye out for living things as part of our Science topic and we also clocked up a lot of steps for the end of the fitness challenge. The children were even rewarded with a delicious Minchella’s ice cream and a chance to play on the beach!
