Life in Beech Class

For a vast majority of Year 4, our chocolate themed term has without doubt been the sweetest! Over the course of this term, we have got to know everything you would need to know about the most tastiest of treats, from where it comes from, how it’s produce all the way through to designing and creating our own cupcake products.

Even our writing took a chocolaty twist, with the children creating a wide range of spectacularly descriptive adventure stories that focused on a journey through a chocolate world. The sheer scale of wonderful ideas that were created was a joy to see, with ideas ranging from mini Malteser Men to fluffy candy floss clouds, and with the help of AI the children were able to see their creations come to life in front of their eyes.

It was no surprise then when the children produced some incredible writing that really blew and it was great to see the joy on your faces when you had the opportunity to read these during our open classrooms.

Despite our term being heavily influenced by chocolate, Year 4 have been able to enjoy the outdoors as the British summer decided to make an appearance.

At one point, our forest area became littered with contractions as the children were tasked with creating sentences out of what they could find on their hunt. It was very clear that being outdoors really inspired creativity.

The improving weather also gave us a chance to try our hands on some problem-solving skills as part of PE and the children came up with some creative ways to overcome challenges, working together well which will come in handy for Braeside.

Out of all the days, our chocolate inspired day was the highlight of the term. The children loved getting their hands messy when creating their own cupcakes, but also enjoyed understanding the process of designing a product from scratch and seeing it develop. They all did so well to not eat them before going home too!

It has been another wonderful term for our Year 4’s and we look forward to our final term together where many exciting adventures await.
