Class 4 have looked at some of the work of Italian artist called Giuseppe Arcimboldo. The children have created faces using fruit and vegetables.

Banana investigation

Banana investigation 1

 Class 4 read that bananas can float in water. Class 4 set about investigating whether it was true or false. To our amazement, we discovered that it was true and they do float in water. Perhaps the children could investigate which other fruits float.


Mathematics 1
This week, the children have been working with 4-digit numbers.  They have said what each digit represents, found numbers 1000 more and 1000 less, and compared and ordered numbers.

The children have gone a little bananas this week! First, they found Costa Rica and Colombia, where bananas are grown, in an atlas and then marked them on a map. Next, they found out how  bananas get to our shops. Finally, they drew some bananas. They had a choice of oil pastels or differently graded pencils.

Yum Yum!

The children enjoyed eating a small piece of chocolate cake. Then they described it.

Here are some of their wonderful descriptions:


'When it was time to taste it, my mouth was watering. It was gooey and delicious.'


'It looked a rich dark brown.'


'The sprinkles felt hard, scattered on the top.'


'It was crumbly and creamy and tasted delicious.'
