PSHCE

This week in PSHCE the children in year 4 have been looking being different, they shared their differences in the class and talked about what makes them unique. They then wrote on white boards “what was different about their partner.” They shared some lovely differences about each other and recognised that although they are all different they are all equal.

More Science

In year 4 we have been looking at the digestive system. We investigated the effects of surface area on the speed of digestion. Firstly the children decided what their independent and dependent variables would be through a discussion in their groups. They then decided how they would carry out their investigation. To do this the children decided to cut up jelly babies into different sizes and timed how long it took the piece to dissolve. They then recorded their results and used excel to create a line graph of their data. The children worked safely in teams to carry out their experiment and identified the risks within the experiment. They are now thinking about their results ready to produce some amazing conclusions.

Science

In year 4 we investigated a micro-habitat at different parts of the day. We collected out data through observation and then used science to explain the patterns and trends we found in our data. From this we were able to write some amazing conclusions using science to help us explain why there were more animals on the afternoon, compared with the morning.
