Alice in Wonderland
Well, what a busy time we have been having in 4C! All of the children in Year 4 have worked tirelessly to create, produce and perform our spectacular version of Alice in Wonderland. The show was a real treat and a joy to watch every time. Below are some of our pictures from rehearsals. Enjoy!
International Day - 29.11.16
For International Day, our country was Germany! We learnt how to say "hello" and "goodbye" in German and learnt how to count up to 12. Miss Elson was very busy all day, baking pretzels with the children. We tried sauerkraut and even some spicy mustard!
To tie in with our history topic, Ancient Egypt, we have made a bread salad called a fattoush. It is delicious! If you would like to make a fattoush at home, scroll down for the recipe.
1 loaf of crisp bread
3 finely chopped tomatoes
3 finely chopped cucumbers
1 finely chopped onion
3 crushed garlic cloves
1 finely chopped lettuce
a few fresh mint leaves, chopped
2 tbs lemon juice
1 tbs sumac
2 tbs oil
pinch of salt
1) Cut up the bread into small pieces.
2) Sprinkle with cold water and place in a salad bowl.
3) Pile all the vegetables and mint over the bread.
4) Mix lemon juice, sumac, salt and oil.
5) Pour over fattoush and mix together.
In Science, we have investigated pitch with bottles (and tried to play Twinkle Twinkle, Little Star with them) and tested what sound can travel through.
We also had a longest sausage dog competition. We had some spectacular entrants, with two of them being over 5 metres long! Some of them were made from loo rolls, some of them were drawn on enormous sheets of paper and some of them were even made out of clothes!
