Welcome to Year 3/4
A warm welcome to Mr Threfall as the class teacher for Year 3/4. We hope he will be very happy at Rockbeare.
We received a letter from Mr Willy Wonka, asking us to research popular chocolate bars and to design a chocolate bar of our own to make in the factory. We created a tally and bar chart to find out the most popular chocolate fillings in our class and popping candy came out on top! Because of this, we included popping candy and another filling of our choice in our chocolate bars. We designed the packaging and made the bars, did a taste test and evaluated them. They were really yummy! After that we worked with a partner to write a persuasive advert for our chocolate bars and filmed them using a green screen app.
In Science, we have been learning about forces and magnets. To finish the topic, we designed and created our own magnetic games with a Charlie and the Chocolate Factory theme. We worked in groups of 3 to design and make a maze, fishing game or racing game. We really enjoyed playing each other's games and evaluating their success!
We had an amazing day out at the Eden Project! It was very hot but we got to see, touch and smell some amazing plants and had a workshop teaching us how to be rainforest rangers!
