Spring 1

A Lasting Legacy?

During the first half of the Spring Term, we will be working as 'Historians, as we explore what life was like in Britain before, during and after the Romans invaded. Supported by a visit from the Theatre Exchange Company, we will immerse ourselves into life in the Roman Empire, as well as reflecting on the legacy that they have left behind.

Autumn 2

Pop to the Shops!

During Autumn 2 in Year 4, we were presented with an exciting challenge from Lord Alan Sugar! In teams, we designed, marketed and presented a decorated cake design, Lord Sugar then chose which teams he would hire as aspiring businessmen and women.

From this, we applied for jobs in the Manor Field Shop, which took place in December. Throughout the project, we designed and made our own products to sell to customers... We certainly had what it took to run a successful, skilled, business.

Autumn 1

Who deserves to inherit the Chocolate Factory?

In Year 4 last half-term, we were exploring one of Roald Dahl’s most magical stories:

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

Mr Wonka could no longer look after the factory and it was time to find a new owner. We explored and evaluated each of the possible candidates, before taking part in a Committee Board Meeting, along with Mr Wonka himself, where it was decided, supported by our arguments, who would be awarded the factory.

As well as evaluating what makes a successful job candidate, we designed and marketed our own box of chocolates. Furthermore, we used PowerPoint to present our arguments about each of the candidates who were applying for the factory job. The winning PowerPoint was used during our Committee Meeting with Mr Wonka. Towards the end of the project, we also designed our own character and job candidate, before writing our own narratives about the ‘Mystery Room!
