This half term our topic is called 'World Kitchen' where we will be learning all about different foods from around the world. We will be tasting and cooking lots of different foods as well as thinking about the science behind food and cooking. We will also be learning about farming and harvest in preparation for our Harvest Festival Assembly on Friday 6th October.
Class 4 spent some of their first week thinking about being really positive about their learning. We discussed 'Growth Mind sets' and 'Fixed Mind sets'. Class 4 now know that one of the best ways of learning is by learning from your mistakes! They are also brilliant at spotting when each other need support with their learning. What a fantastic start to Year 4!
Class 4 will soon be having their first lunchtime Book Club meeting. Here is the first book they will be reviewing with hot chocolate and marshmallows!
Take a look at our Book Club letter below.
Class four have been designing, making and evaluating bread rolls this half term. We have had lots of fun as well as learning about science, maths and design technology in the process. Thank you to our judges who became Mary Berry, Prue,Paul Hollywood and Mel and Sue for the afternoon. Especially well done to our star bakers!
Everyone is welcome to join class four on Friday 8th December at 2.30 where the children will be selling the cakes and pickles they have also been making. There will also be a cafe serving tea, coffee and homemade cakes.

Class 4 had a great time on World Book Day. We read a lovely book called 'Once Upon an Ordinary School Day' by Colin McNaughton and were consequently inspired to write our stories and make our own books. We also snuggled down with our duvets and dreamt of wonderful experiences and adventures whilst listening to 'A Million Dreams' from the film 'The Greatest Showman'. We also listened to Tchaikovsky's 'The Nutcracker Suite' and produced some fantastic art work whilst listening to the music.
The Freshwater Theatre Group came to school on Monday March 5th to work with class 4. They had a fantastic day taking part in drama workshops about Beowulf and Thorgill the Viking.
We can't believe it's the summer term already in class 4! This half term we are going to be learning all about 'The Rainforest'. Have a look below at our newsletter, Home Learning and Book Club letter.
This half term we are continuing our topic about the rainforest. We are very much looking forward to our class trip to Twycross Zoo where we will be finding out about endangered species and where different animals and plants live in the rainforest. Take a look at our half term newsletter to find out about what we will be learning about over the next few weeks.
