Buzz changed his name because his little sister couldn’t pronounce brother but instead she said Buzzer. In 1988 he legally changed his name to Buzz. His dad encouraged Buzz to fly an aeroplane because he was a Colonel in the US Air Force. The Mom was the daughter of the Army Chaplain, therefore Buzz was surrounded by Military influences.

2015 has brought a lot of exciting change to Year 4. Mrs Akers and Mrs Twomey are enjoying getting to know all of the children in Class 4. The children have been enthusiastic about their new topics and we are really pleased that some children have handed in some lovely pieces of homework already. Katie has worked particularly hard and handed in an incredible amount of homework, well done Katie! Also, well done to those children who have received stickers for reaching the star by the end of the day. Pheobe has nearly completed her sticker chart already, well done Pheobe!
Well done to Pierce and Isobelle Soady, who were both nominated for good work. Pierce was excellent at solving problems in numeracy and Isobelle was super during literacy, she produced an excellent haiku poem.
Here are our new choir songs. I’ll give out the words at school and attach them to this post very soon!
‘Sing’ by Gary Barlow
‘Lego House’ by Ed Sheeran
‘The Power of Love’ by Gabrielle Aplin
Class 4 enjoyed a fantastic Day out at Cadbury’s World. The Day began with an interesting talk where we learnt about the origins of chocolate, and how it has developed into the chocolate we taste today. We also got the chance to look at the way Cadbury’s advertise their chocolate. We are able to identify lots of examples!
We were very excited to enter the exhibition and really enjoyed all the interactive activities. We met The Aztecs, The Mayans and the famous Spanish exploror, Cortez. Desterny lost a bet to a rich lady, and we all got shaken like cocoa beans!
It was a lovely day, and we got to eat our lunch outside before entering ‘Essence’, where we got the opportunity to find out about the discovery of Dairy Milk and taste some of the yummy liquid chocolate!
The day flew by and soon it was nearly time to go, but not before a visit to the Cadbury’s shop! We all had some difficult choices to make…Crunchie or Wispa?
The children had a fabulous time and they behaved brilliantly. I was very impressed by how much information they had remembered from their work in class, and they were a credit to Kitwell. Well done Class 4. Cadbury photos coming soon…
Well done to Kayli and Tony as both were nominated for Good Work assembly. Kayli has been working very hard in school and at home with her spellings, in recent weeks she has managed to get 20/20 and Tony has worked very hard in Literacy and produced an excellent letter during Big Write.
Have a wonderful half term and we hope you enjoy creating a new chocolate bar, we look forward to tasting them when you return.
Year 4 had the wonderful opportunity of going to Symphony Hall today to see a range of musical styles, orchestras and choirs. We all enjoyed clapping, dancing and singing along. It was the inspiration we needed to get practising on our cornets!
Have a look at our photos to see how much fun we had.
Well done to Ella and Jack R both were nominated for Good Work assembly. Ella retold a story from another culture, she included lots of fantastic details and Jack can subtract very well.
To get our new Topic ‘Chocolate’ off to a super start, we tasted a variety of sweet and savoury snacks to find out which we preferred. We also enjoyed tasting a variety of different chocolate. Milk chocolate got the most votes. YUMMY!
