In our science topic on changing states, we have created posters to explain the water cycle, experimented with freezing several liquids differing in viscosity and have tested our predictions further on slope tests. We are really getting to grips with solids, liquids and gasses!
Our class reader, the Butterfly Lion finds Bertie in the trenches and in a sorry state. We have been writing as Bertie to Millie back home and it has been emotional!
Another team of dedicated litter-picking enthusiasts march out to the local park to save our planet (and park) from being buried in litter and single-use plastic – ably assisted by Mrs Macintosh.
Take a look at our water cycle display!
Justice Class have enjoyed working with fractions for the first time in ages. We are looking at equivalent fractions and fractions of amounts and we all enjoy it.
As part of our science work this term, we have been looking at the viscosity of liquids and relating it to particle formation. We couldn’t test the tomato sauces’ viscosity as it was so slow it dried up in the baking hot sun.
Some members of our class demonstrate the differences between solids, liquids and gases.
We are reading the Butterfly Lion by Michael Morpurgo, we made predictions about what will happen in the story.
Take a look at our fantastic Changes display!
Justice Class are preparing to solve the litter problem on our coastline. A quick practice and then were off next week.
In science this term, we are looking at changing states. To start our topic, we put different matter in to solids, liquids and gases.
Year 4 really enjoyed the NHS roadshows’ ‘Fantastic Fred’s Guide to Mental Wellbeing’. We learnt how to take care of ourselves and we produced booklets to celebrate our new knowledge.
