Welcome to our Class 4 page!
Last Tuesday was the first of our move up mornings and we welcomed the current Year 4s into our classroom. We had a morning of activities designed to get to know one another better. The highlight of this was a team-building task. We were put into groups and challenged to build the tallest tower we could using only dry spaghetti and marshmallows. This was a great way to get us all talking and discussing ideas – even if some of us did end up with rather sticky fingers! The winners of the challenge managed to create a tower that was 140mm tall. Good work! We are all looking forward to our move up morning next week and wonder what our teachers will have in store for us!
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!
