Class 4 Learning
Welcome to the new school year class 4!
Wow! What a great start to the new term – sharing brilliant models and creations inspired over the summer holiday from reading your chosen Roald Dahl books, including James and the Giant Peach, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, The Twits, Fantastic Mr Fox, Danny the Champion of the World, Boy and The Magic Finger. Thank you to mums, dads and aunties who have all been supporting this project. We were lucky to share in the fabulous creations included baked and decorated cakes, models with mechanisms, lego models, pies and much more.
Here are a few examples of what was shared:
We have all been having fun learning about rounding numbers through our active maths games, tagtiv8.
We have been exploring our taste and how our saliva helps to break down the food we eat, by creating a cracker investigation. We loved tasting the samples of, sweet, salty, sour, bitter and umami too.
In our art lesson we explored smiles through famous artworks. Using the surrealist artist, Man Ray, we created our own smile focused art pieces, with some really pleasing results.
Roald Dahl Day! What a lot of fun we all had celebrating Roald Dahl’s birthday. Making lickable wallpaper, baking Nishnobblers and Pishlets from the revolting recipes, solving the jelly bean maths challenge and designing and creating bugs.
Today we have been learning about the digestive system, we really enjoyed the porridge model demonstration! Whilst messy, it was a great way of seeing what happens to our food as we eat.
