Year 4 – Thailand

Welcome to Thailand Class!


Hi Everyone, I'm Miss Thompson and I'm extremely proud to be the class teacher of Thailand Class this year! On our journey through Year 4, we will be spending time learning about Thailand itself at different points throughout the year! We will then move onto learning about The Ancient Greeks, followed by Unfortunate Events and finishing with The Romans. 


With lots and lots of exciting things ahead, lets put pencil to paper and get this year started...

Observing the effects of different substances on our 'Teeth'

Investigating the Digestive System

Researching the functions of different parts of the human digestive system...


On Monday morning we were introduced to the story 'Twenty-One elephants' in assembly. We learnt about how the Brooklyn Bridge, in America, was built and how people were nervous about it holding weight. So, 21 elephants were led across it!




First, we looked at a range of bridges from around the world. We discussed the shapes that we could see, why the bridge had been built, what the landscape around it looks like and what materials had been used when building.




Then, we began to design our own bridges.


We used spaghetti and marshmallows to investigate diagonal struts to see how strength can be improved within our structures and also components of a simple circuit so that we could add a light at the top to warn aeroplanes and helicopters of the highest point.

Following this, we then moved onto building our bridges, using carefully selected resources...

Thailand class made Greek Gyros with a Tzakiki dip! At first, everyone was a little worried as many children had said that they had never tried cooking before! But, it didn't take long before we got used to the equipment. When we tasted them, we were shocked by how much we enjoyed them!


Ingredients we used (because the children have asked for them to make Gyros at home):

Pitta Bread, Garlic cloves, juice of half a lemon, chicken breast, cucumber, red onion, Greek Yogurt, oregano, Olive oil and white wine vinegar!
