When some children were in Burwell, I stayed in school. In school, I was watching a movie called “A Christmas Carol.” This movie is about a old, grumpy man called Scrooge and he hated Christmas.
In the Christmas holidays, Mrs Sewell had lots of fun spending lots of time with Meerbat. She was so excited!
First, they all went to see the funfair! They definitely had lots of fun there! Then, they all came back home to have some warm coffee. When it was Christmas Day, Meerbat was opening his presents excitedly. Cheeky Meerbat tried to eat up all of the candy!!! The best thing on Christmas was having fun!
On Thursday 14th December, we went to a Mexican restaurant called Chiquito. Me and my friends all tried different foods from Mexico. They all had special toppings that represent the Mexican flag. We had Salsa Sauce which was red, Guacamole which was green and Sour Cream which was white.
My favourite topping was the Salsa Sauce because it was a really good taste with some vegetables in. I didn’t like Guacamole because it had avocado and herbs and I don’t like that. The Sour Cream was really spicy and sour but it was a good topping. Then we all had to mix those toppings together. It was so yummy and a bit spicy. I liked dipping the nachos in the different toppings. Nachos are a type of chip that you can dip in and try those toppings.
We all tried to make our own burito. In my burito, I put rice, beans and lettuce. We had a competition of who made the best burito, and my friend Livia won! Her prize was a Mexican hat. Everyone got a hat too.
I enjoyed the trip to Chiquito. Before we came back to school, we all got a Mexican hat and a goodie bag. I had a super time!
At Huntingdon Primary School, we have five values: Respect, Courage, Resilience, Pride and Teamwork. It is important that we show the HPS values because being kind, nice and helpful makes everyone happy. You should always make the right choices in the class because you can get Star of the Week or Head Comms awards. To get Top Table, you need to be using polite manners to the midday staff and the dinner staff. You need to say please and thank you politely. I really enjoy learning in my school.
This week in English, year 4 has been thinking about the book “ The Firework-Maker’s Daughter.”
We have been asking questions about the book with Mrs Timmis. Then we all predicted about what would happen in the book. I had a lot of fun in English because that is my favourite subject. I have written a lot of different questions in my English book. We all had great questions and predictions about the book. While I was writing questions, Mrs Timmis gave me pink ticks! I had a lot of fun in English with Mrs Timmis.
This week I have been in gym with my class. I really enjoyed it because I was able to do some gymnastic tricks. I mostly enjoyed doing the bunny hops and cartwheels. Surprisingly, I have done a proper cartwheel! I have learnt that I need a lot of practice to get all of the tricks perfect. I was being sensible and I was listening to the teacher. It was really fun!
