WHAT HAVE WE BEEN UP TO?

AUTUMN TERM 2019

ENTERPRISE WEEK

Over the last two weeks, Class 4 have been working on their Enterprise Week project.  The children were asked to design a Christmas themed biscuit for homework.  We chose 6 winning designs from a great deal of high quality work.  Some of the children even made biscuit samples!  The 6 winning designers then headed teams pitching to become the overall winner.  We held a Dragon's Den event last Friday afternoon, when each team presented their 'pitch'.  It was a difficult decision, but Chloe's design was picked to be the overall Class 4 biscuit design.  Throughout the following week, Mrs Wilshaw and the children baked up a storm and 120 biscuits were made and iced.  A great effort by all concerned.  In our maths lessons, we learnt about costs and profit and worked out a price for our biscuits and how much to sell them for.  At the Christmas Fair, our biscuits sold out within the first hour!  More pictures to follow.

THE GREAT ZOO DEBATE!

For the last three weeks, Class 4 have been learning about balanced arguments.  This topic culminated in the Great Zoo Debate on the last day of the half term.  There was great passion displayed on both sides of the argument and the children presented their arguments with fairness and enthusiasm.  Well done Class 4!

STREET CHILD

Class 4 are reading Street Child by Berlie Doherty.

Today we have been looking at the characters and how they feel.  The children took part in an activity called 'Conscience Alley' where they offered the main character Jim, their own advice on whether or not he should try to escape from the workhouse.

Macbeth

The class discussed whether Macbeth was to blame for King Duncan's murder - or could it have been Lady Macbeth who was more to blame?

We had some lively discussion! 

Class 4 have been baking biscuits.  Here is a selection of their fantastic creations.
