On Monday and Tuesday of this week, Year 4 took part in Jamie Oliver’s Ministry of Food. They went over to extra club to learn about healthy eating, food hygiene and food awareness. Andy, the chef for the two days, told them all what we should eat and what we shouldn’t eat. He showed us a balanced diet plate and the stuff we are meant to eat more of was in the larger part on of the plate. The food we shouldn’t eat were in the smaller part of the plate.
Once he told us how to cut with a sharp knife, we had to cut our own food up in to quarters and half. We had cut up all of our food and put in the pan and started to mix all the the spices up into the food to flavour our vegetable fajitas. At the end of the session our parents were invited to join us to take a look at the fun things that we had been up to. When we finally finished cooking, it was time to put the cooked vegetables into the wraps with some yogurt and cheese. Then we ate our lovely delicious wrap.We all would probably do it again!We all loved learning how to cook.
Theo (4L) said, “I odn’t like courgettes but I love them in this!”
Marley (4J) said, “I love mushrooms. I’ll be making this at home.”
This afternoon, 4J performed a brilliant assembly for the rest of Blakehill, all about World War II. They had been reading a book in their English lessons called Friend or Foe, which is all about two boys who are evacuated to Devon and find two German soldiers, that have crashed from their plane! Using this book, the children have managed to produce multiple pieces of fantastic work such as a diary entry of David (a character in the book), a setting description of the streets that had been bombed and destroyed by the Germans and decision wheels, thinking about what would happen next in the chapter and story.
In topic, the class listened to Neville Chamberlain’s declaration of the war and then wrote from a person who was listening’s point of view. This week, they have learnt a song called “When you’re a kid in World War II” which was very catchy and had a fun rhythm, and sung it to us as they danced around!
This topic was really fun to learn all about and year 4 enjoyed reading the book and looking into the past of the war!
