Fun in Year Four!

Here are some photos of Year 4 working hard and having fun at the same time!

They did a couple of experiments in Science to find out if the bubbles in fizzy drinks are weightless or not, and to work out how long it takes for chocolate to melt at different temperatures. They then made their own lollies since it would have been a shame to waste all that lovely chocolate!

They designed a chocolate bar label and wrapper in Art/DT lessons.

In English they worked in groups to write and perform a TV advert to sell a fizzy drink , a chocolate bar or a packet of crisps.

No need to say we have been feeling very hungry all week!!

Well done, Year 4!
