Another busy week in Year 4! We have been working hard on drafting our descriptions this week and have used some amazing figurative language. Hopefully we will have some Golden Book entries when we publish them next week! In Maths we have been working on decimals, mass and capacity. A gentle reminder to encourage your child to access Times Table Rockstars as often as possible at home in preparation for the Multiplication Table Check (MTC) which the children will complete in June. It will be here before we know it! We have been improving our French skills on Duolingo and looking at a Podcast script in Guided Reading. As part of our ‘Rights and Respect’ topic this week we have been thinking about rights that all children have, especially the right to an education about health and nutritious food. We designed and then with the help of our school cook Kate we created our very own healthy pizzas. The Y3/4 corridor smelt amazing! See the carousel below for a selection of wonderful pictures.
Please note school is closed on Monday 1st May, we will see you on Tuesday 2nd May.

Cooking up a storm!
We had an amazing time this week designing and then making our Healthy Pizzas. After we had designed them we worked with Kate to mix and knead our dough and chop all of the vegetables for our toppings and for the ‘5 Veg Sauce’. Kate then roasted the vegetables for the sauce (carrots, onions, butternut squash, red peppers) with garlic and mixed herbs before adding them to tinned chopped tomatoes and blitzing them in a food processor. All of the children thought this sauce was delicious and are hoping to make it again at home! We really liked knowing exactly what ingredients were in the sauce and also how healthy it was. Kate told us that some shop bought jars of pizza sauce have up to 14 teaspoons of sugar in them! The next day we constructed our pizzas according to our design before evaluating the whole process. We sent the pizzas home after cooking them as we wanted you all to see (and taste!) how delicious and impressive our Healthy Pizzas were 🙂
