Week 5 review
Bethany – I liked it but I think that we could have used apricot yoghurt and that would go better.
Scarlett – I kind of liked it but after I ate it, it made me feel sick because it had too much honey in it.
Tarlia – I liked the yoghurt but I didn’t want to try it because it didn’t look that good after I mixed it too much.
Ella – I loved making it but I didn’t like it because of the yoghurt.
Evie – If I had to change something, I would add more honey to replace the yoghurt.
Amber – I enjoyed it, but the yoghurt was overpowering the flavour.
Darcey – I enjoyed the granola but I don’t really like the banana and yoghurt together.
Fred – If I could change something, I would take out the apricot as this spoiled my appetite.
Class 4 Diwali Celebration
Year 4 had a wonderful afternoon celebrating Diwali as part of our religious and cultural studies in Term 2. We learned all about the 'festival of lights' and took part in some of the many activities those who celebrate Diwali do.
Capel Church Trip
Class 4 walked to the St Thomas A Beckett church to explore the surroundings and learn about its history. We were amazed to find out that the site may have been originally used by the Anglo-Saxons!
As part of our learning, the children created a timeline of the church's history and explored the meaning behind the pictures painted on the church walls. We discovered that because not everyone could read, churches would cover their walls with paintings to teach people the stories from the bible.
The pupils particularly enjoyed choosing their own items to photograph as inspiration for their latest sketch in art. These will compliment their original sketches of the church, some of which were given to the church as a thank-you gift.
