Year 4 Trip to Cadbury World

After a lengthy journey down the Mr, Year 4 finally arrived at Cadbury World.
We had an interesting talk from Colin who explained how chocolate was made – from Bean to Bar. Being a historian he talked about the role of the Cadbury family in WWI, which linked nicely to our theme week in school. Roald Dahl was a fascinating topic of conversation as the children have been reading Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. We had the chance to temper some chocolate in the Have a Go room and then went on to write our names in chocolate. The highlight of the day was our trip to the 4D cinema, where Freddo, Caramel and a naughty Parrot took us on a roller coaster adventure. All in all it was a fantastic trip with exemplary behaviour from all the children. Colin the educator said that “William Amory were one of the best schools to visit.” A few comments from the children about the trip included: “Visiting Cadbury World was the best school trip ever.”, “brilliant”, “Have a Go was my fave part.”, and “I loved learning how the chocolate was made.”
 
I’m sure the children told you all about their amazing trip to Cadbury World.

 

Reception Create Pizzas

Reception have been reading and learning about The Little Red Hen. The Little Red Hen creates some bread out of the flour she makes, however Reception thought it would be even better to make some pizza out of flour, tomatoes and cheese.

Each child had a go at making their own pizza and wrote down the ingredients they would be needing. Just look at how good the pizzas look! The kitchen smelt amazing while they were cooking.

 

 

Year 4 Make Models of Teeth

Year 4 have been making their very own model of teeth out of clay. They have been learning to identify the different types of teeth and their simple functions. I wonder if we have some future dentists and dental nurses in our midst.

 

Theme Week – 100 Year Armistice Anniversary

The William Amory Primary School and Nursery commemorated the 100th anniversary of the signing of the Armistice – which recognised the significance of the end of the First World War, and the sacrifice made by so many men and women during the war.

Over the course of the theme week, the children took part in a wide variety of activities. We had Officer Miller from @armywestmidlands (https://www.facebook.com/ArmyWestMidlands/) come in to give a talk about how the army was during the First World War and how it is today. We had a selection of army vehicles on the playground (thanks to Mr Herdman for arranging the visit, Foxfield and the Historical Vehicles Association) for the children to look at. The children created a wide variety of poppies for our own displays and also for Leveson Wood to contribute to the poppy display outside St. Peter’s church. The display looks absolutely fantastic and we are ever so proud to have helped with the creation of such a beautiful memorial. A beautiful and delicious cake was created by one of our parents.

Have a look at extensive photos below to see what the children have been up to all over the school.

Year 3 Welcome Harold Home

Year 3 have held a welcome home street party for our injured soldier Harold. Throughout theme week the children have written letters as if they were Harold informing parents of what life was like in WW1 in the trenches and fighting in the battles. They have also collectively created the figure of Harold who has been central to our leaning this week.  We have researched street parties and have recreated a welcome home street party for Harold which included trying different foods which were similar to the foods the soldiers would have eaten in the war. We also had a go at rationing our food to give the children a feel of what it would be like to not have food readily available to them.

It looks like you had a lot of fun Year 3!
