Science

We have also created an experiment to see what happens to our tooth enamel fizzy drinks are consumed. We have used eggs to replicate our teeth (the shell acting as the enamel) and have placed one in vinegar and coca-cola, and the other covered in toothpaste in the same substance! We have made it a fair test by keeping the volume of the liquid the same and they are being left in the same place.

See back for the results!

Science

We have recreated models of our lower jaw using playdough! The children have used different shapes for the different types of teeth we have!

Brilliant Beginnings...

This half term we will be learning about teeth and the digestive system in Science. Today we have recreated the digestive system, ultimately making poo, using everyday items. 

Times Table Rockstar Day!

Art

For Remembrance Day, we used our art skill to sketch poppies. 

Brilliant Beginnings...

This half term our topic is Myths and Legends. As our brilliant beginning, we have sculpted clay pots!

Maths

Today in maths we have been practicing our 6 times tables. We played a game of matching pairs matching the equation to the answer.

English

This week in English, we have been looking at playscripts. Today we have used a playscript to act out a scene from The Lion King. 

Art

We have been practicing our drawing skills today. Here are some of our self-portraits!

DT

In this weeks DT sessions we have been exploring different electrical devices that produce light. Here are some photographs of Year 4 evaluating and using different torches. 

PE

This half term in PE we are looking at OOA (outdoor adventurous activities). We have been building habitats in the willow-dome and have created some dens in the hall using the PE equipment.

Nutrition Mission

Last week Year 4 were lucky enough to have Sarah from Sports Partnership come into class and teach them all about health and nutrition. The children learnt about the 5 food groups and how to have a balanced diet. They also designed their ideal healthy lunchbox and learnt about daily amounts of sugars they should be having.
