Year 4 Science ‘Egg-speriments’

In Science, the children are learning about the human digestive system.

Having learned how to describe the digestive system, we are now looking at how we can all help to keep the system healthy and functioning well.

We are starting with teeth, and are carrying out experiments (or ‘egg-speriments’ if you prefer) using eggs and a variety of different liquids to simulate the effects the liquids might have on our teeth.  After that, we will be experimenting with toothpaste to see if it really can help to clean and protect our teeth.

We will update with some of our results later this week!

Taking responsibility for learning in Maths

In Year 4 we completed our first unit of Maths, learning about the place value of numbers.  To help to count in 3s, 4s, 5s and 10s (including using negative numbers) the children used a variety of resources, really taking responsibility for their own learning.
