Everyone enjoyed making and eating the pizzas! A massive thank you yet again to Mrs. Appleby for everything!E

Our first trial - Healthy Pizzas!

On Tuesday, the 29th of June, we made our own pizzas based on the Eatwell plate. We used a combination of wholemeal and white flour to try out the difference. There was a range of toppings such as pepperoni, salami, ham, spinach, rocket , peppers and Mozzarella! 

We enjoyed making and tasting our pizzas! It was amazing! A big thank you to Mrs. Appleby for all her help and advice!

Summer2 Topic - Hunted

In Design and Technology, we have been tasting a variety of food items such as Chorizo, Hommus, olives, Quorn chicken, pineapple, salami, olives, Mozzarella, Feta chese , sun-dried tomatoes, pineapple, cucumber, rocket and baby spinach, red, yellow and orange peppers, wholemeal pitta bread, Tiger bread and prawns.

We have been using descriptive vocabulary to analyse the texture, smell, taste and appearance. We really enjoyed our tasting session and many of us tried things we had never had before! We are now looking forward to planning our own healthy dish.

Question and Answer session with Mrs. Appleby- Thursday, 10th June

A big thank you to Mrs. Appleby who answered all our questions about school menus, healthy eating , allergies , ingredients, recipes and more! We learnt a 

lot and really enjoyed discussing 'food'! 

Summer 1 Topic: Water , Water Everywhere!

Our lead subjects are - History, Geography, Science and Art and Design.

We will be learning about rivers and the water cycle in Geography. In History, we will be exploring the ancient civilisation - 'Ancient Egyptians' and focusing on the River Nile. In Art and Design, we will be creating our own 'sea' paintings inspired by the famous artists and painters Constable and Hokusai. In Science, we will be learning about 'Solids, Liquids and Gases'.

End of Unit- Our Art Outcomes on Canvas

We were inspired by the artwork of Hokusai, Constable and Monet to create our own 'water-themed' paintings on canvas. We used lots of different materials like sand, PVA glue, pastels and paints to create a range of textures. It was fun exploring and experimenting with a range of media. We also evaluated our paintings in our book and reflected on what we could do better. 

Overall it was a fun and exciting process and we are all very proud of our final outcomes! Well done to everyone!

Year 4's walk to River Darwen at Ewood Park - 29.4.21

On the 29th of April, Year 4 went on a Geography fieldwork trip (walk) following the River Darwen to Ewood Park. Our class thoroughly enjoyed the walk and sketched many interesting things on the way. We will be comparing our sketches with the aerial images of the area to annotate some of the places and things we sketched. We all had a fantastic time! A big thank you to Mrs. Hughes for accompanying our class!

Garden of Gethsemane

We created the Garden of Gethsemane using sticks, stones, twigs and flowers from our school ground. We enjoyed having our lesson outdoor. When we drew our pebbles, we thought about Jesus being all alone and how he must have felt.
