Eastgate have had a super cool week this week being… REAL LIFE NEWS REPORTERS! WOW!

The children had so much fun on Tuesday, reporting on all of the exciting and exhilarating things going on in St Martin’s from an unexpected fire alarm (and thinking Steve had burnt the toast!!), to investigating what wonderful learning was going on in all the other classrooms, to a very special visit from Miss Boynton, Mr Huddart and beautiful baby Theo. Talk about ‘jumping in at the deep end’ when it comes to first time reporting! They were fabulous. We will upload lots of different pictures and videos from the day over the next couple of weeks.


Eastgate News #1 from St Martin's Academy on Vimeo.

The children have spent their English sessions drafting and writing up their news articles onto comic life (which look really professional!), and becoming editors by editing their work on the computer software at the front of the classroom!

Also, during the children’s RE sessions this half term, they have been learning about Malala Yousafzai, who is a Pakistani activist for female education and the youngest Nobel Prize laureate.

For this week’s RE session, the children looked at the education of girls, generally from Pakistan (as this is where Malala is from). Through a variety of practical sorting activities, researching and reading facts activities, the children learnt about the similarities and differences between the education of girls in England and girls in Pakistan. They also read some ‘eye-opening’ facts about the education of girls in Pakistan and the challenges they face, before looking at what they could do to help improve the education of girls around the world.

Have a special weekend with family and friends Eastgate.

The Year 4 Team.
