The children in Year 4 have settled in well to their new class since September and have been enjoying learning all about Victorian Wrexham. We explored the town looking at different buildings, looked at old maps and census material from 1891. In the new half term we are looking forward to our class trip to Port Sunlight to look at the purpose built village, the museum and take part in a workshop all about life in Victorian times when the village was brand new.
In our Science lessons we have been learning all about how to eat more healthily. We looked at the amount of fat, salt and sugar in a range of foods. We designed, made, ate and evaluated a healthy kebab – very yummy. We also tried to persuade our parents to give us good things to eat by creating a ‘Healthy Foods’ leaflet.
We have also been splashing around in Waterworld every Tuesday morning and are getting much more confident in the water now. Maybe a future Olympic swimmer is hiding amongst us.
Next term will be busy with the build up to Christmas. We will be researching how children celebrate this important festival in Poland. Any help with information regarding traditions, festive food ideas, carols or costumes please send it in with your children.
