Welcome to Year 4!

During our science learning about sound, we used a tuning fork immersed in water to "see" the sound through the vibrations (and splashes) it made. As you can see it was rather awesome and created a lot of laughter!

... and Christmas begins! This week we made cards as they would have been in Victorian times.

As part of our Ancient Egyptian theme, we each made a mummy and sarcophagus, practising a range of dexterous skills (particularly how to get messy with Modroc).

As part of our cross-curricular geography and science work, we have been learning about the water cycle.
Yesterday, we proved how it is continually occurring with hot water, ice, tin foil and bowls! Perhaps your child could explain to you this process.

As part of our theme of ancient Egyptians, we made our own hummus, first eaten by Egyptian and middle eastern cultures.
We had the convenience of using food mixers but had to be very mindful of safety.
When it was made, most of us ate some with pitta bread warmed, in class, in our portable oven.

Watching the film.
Writing the script.
Practising the script.
Performing to class.

In Science, we had fun melting chocolate and then letting it go solid again. We used the cooker and had to ensure we understood how to stay safe.
While we waited for the chocolate to solidify, we enjoyed Now>Press>Play, our immersive and imaginative resource; interacting with the Changing States of Matter experience.
Thursday 3rd October 2019
As part of our science theme of States of Matter, we have been investigating melting. We carried out an experiment to see the effect of how quickly ice melted when salt is added.

In History this term, we are learning about the Ancient Egyptians and as part of this theme. In Art, we recreated the golden, bejeweled neck collars worn by the rich. Ours, of course, were cardboard and paint!
