For Roald Dahl Day in Class 4, we created our own poems based on Mr Twit’s beard. We then shared our ideas and used them to create a class poem, which we shared in Achievement Assembly. The children performed really well, they all spoke with loud and proud voices. Well done, Class 4.
On Friday, Class 4 used their research to make a model of Space using fruit.
Each planet was represented by the following:
- Mercury = peppercorn
- Venus = raspberry
- Earth = cherry tomato
- Mars = blueberry
- Jupiter = watermelon
- Saturn = grapefruit
- Uranus = apple
- Neptune = lime
We then discussed how we could improve our model. Some of the fantastic suggestions were to include the moons of the planets, draw their orbits and make sure our model is to scale.
Today, Class 4 explored making some frame structures. We started by creating a 2D shape from spaghetti and marshmallows. We then used that shape as a face for our 3D shapes. After that, we made the tallest structure we could. As our structures got taller, we had to reinforce them with extra spaghetti.
After break, we used bamboo kebab sticks, paper straws and elastic bands to make a frame structure which could hold a weight. Will’s structure managed to hold a weight of 1700g! As we added more weight, we had to reinforce our structures and try to balance the weight in the middle of the structure.
Today’s activities allowed us to work as a team, as well as develop our resilience and perseverance. Tomorrow, we will design a frame structure for forest school for Class 1 and 2 to use.
Well done Class 4
Last Friday, Class 5 went to St Agatha’s church in Llanymynech to look at the various features of a Christian church.
All of the children enjoyed their morning and learnt a great deal. They were a pleasure to take out of the classroom and listened
impeccably to Reverend Trimby and her volunteer helpers from the local churches in the area.
Today, the Year 4s and some children who had previously missed out on the opportunity went to Pool Quay. We spent half the day canoeing and the other half completing bushcraft activities. Everybody had a lovely day in the warm, sunny weather and the behaviour was excellent.

This week, we placed skittles around the edge of our plate. When we added water, the water became colourful. This is an example of chromatography. We also tried to grow some jelly babies. We put 1 in water (which grew), 1 in salt water (which shrunk) and 1 in cola (which went like a jelly blob). We found out that the jelly baby in the sugary water grew the most. This was all down to osmosis.
