Using the knowledge we have recently learnt about reading timetables, the 2 year 4 classes got together to solve some tricky timetabling issues.
The children (and teachers) had so much fun at Cadbury World when we visited on 9th February.
We found out about the history of chocolate, from the Aztecs first discovering the cocoa bean to the threat of a chocolate shortage today! We got to see historical Cadbury advertising campaigns ... The gorilla playing the drums was awesome! We got to create, and eat, our own chocolate pots (delicious) and see chocolate making in action.
We were told all about Cadbury; how the company started and grew, different products they have made, what they need to consider when they design a new product and how they are taking steps to combat the threat of a worldwide chocolate shortage.
Did you know, workers at Cadbury do not need to wear protective gloves? Do you know why? We do!
The 4D cinema experience was brilliant, it was very realistic and had us all on the edge of our seats, if we could have just reached a little more then that chocolate bar would have been ours!
There has been a buzz of excitement in Year 4 the past few days... We have butterflies and they're stunning painted ladies! It has been magical watching them emerge from their cocoons, we were amazed how quickly their wings unfurled to reveal their beauty.
Wow! Year 4 have certainly had a busy few weeks.
We have been learning all about the Polar Regions. This topic has given us the chance to enjoy reading the book '365 Penguins' which inspired us to write diary entries and poems based on the story. Using our fantastic researching skills we have found out loads of interesting facts about different kinds of penguins. Our topic work has meant we found out about the Arctic, the people who live there and their way of life. We are looking forward to creating our own penguin models in Art.
Ask us why a polar bear wouldn't eat a penguin.
We hope that you all had fun celebrating our Harvest Festival with us, we loved learning all the songs and are still singing them to ourselves. Weddington Primary, Year 4 and Nuneaton Food Bank are incredibly grateful for all the generous donations of food that were made during this celebration.
Science has seen us finding out about living things, we have all been very excited to watch our caterpillars grow and cocoon, we can not wait to see the butterflies they will become. It was fun to hunt for leaves, learning about their structures and then using our imaginations to turn them in to different animals.
