Welcome to our Class 4 page!
Yesterday, Class 4 welcomed guests into Class 4 Café, serving food from throughout the ages.
In the weeks leading up to the big day, we researched and planned every detail of the food, deciding that we wanted to offer both a savoury platter and a sweet platter. Once six dishes were chosen, we decided it was vital to trial the recipes, evaluate them and alter accordingly, just like a professional kitchen. “The Scones were far too salty to begin with!”
Once the food was perfected, the café itself was the next priority. We wanted the guests to have an insight into the time periods that the food came from. Therefore, in groups, we produced information posters which were then displayed within the café. We also created bunting and personalised menus, discussing the importance of informing the guests of all ingredients.
In order to buy the correct amount of ingredients to feed the number of guests, we used our learning in maths to work this out. In groups, we all contributed to making the food and special thanks must be given to our school cook, Claire, who patiently allowed the invasion of the kitchen during this time.
On the day, we were all given a specific role. These included welcoming and seating the guests, waiting tables, serving the food to order, taking payments or even providing entertainment by playing an instrument to create the right ambiance. We carried these out with complete professionalism while having a fantastic time.
The dishes served were;
Wartime carrot croquettes,Tudor Marchpane sweets
Wartime potato scones, Roman Tiger Nut sweets
Victorian Salad with dressing and 1950s Chocolate mousse
A veritable feast!!
It was a great success and all who were involved or attended enjoyed the whole experience.
Guests commented, “Absolutely gorgeous food – delicious! The service was attentive and I loved the musical floorshow. Thanks for a wonderful time!” And, “I only ordered the sweet platter but when I saw the savoury, I ordered that too! Well done all!”
Well done Class 4 and thank you parents for your support – especially those who helped clear up!
Last week, Year 6 were lucky enough to attend the Big Bang @ Northants. This is an annual STEM event held at The Silverstone Wing. For those of you that don’t know, The Silverstone Wing is located in the centre of the world famous Grand Prix circuit at Silverstone. Many of us were very excited to travel around the outside of the circuit in our coach; we had fun spotting racing cars!
We had the opportunity to visit a number of exhibits – all of which were very hands-on. Between us we stroked an armadillo, had a short course in CPR, sat in a racing car built by engineers at Bath University, milked a pretend cow, took part in an experiment about earthquakes, built and tested our own Lego car, played with a water sculpture, had a close encounter with a tarantula and examined an Aston Martin tyre that had been driven around the Silverstone track. We packed a lot in!
We also took part in an immersive experience in a planetarium. This was very impressive! The screen was all around us and so felt almost 3D at times. We took a journey through space and ‘landed’ on one of Jupiter’s moons. The film pondered the question of whether life exists on other planets. Some of us were so engaged that we carried on the discussion in the coach on the way home!
We thoroughly enjoyed our morning and feel inspired to consider STEM careers.
