Today Year 4 used their maths and computing skills to put together a weather forecast. We even had a go at being real weather reporters!
Today in science Year 4 explored the volume of liquids as part of our solids, liquids and gases topic. The children engaged themselves in excellent conversation and debate whilst ordering different sized containers from the one with the lowest volume to the one with the highest volume.
In science the children are learning about solids and liquids. Today we investigated melting! Each child held a piece of chocolate tightly in their hand to heat it above room temperature. Some pieces were bigger than others, some were white, some were milk and some had been refrigerated beforehand!
It was interesting to see how some melted more quickly than others even though the children had held them for the same amount of time. The children came up with their own ideas about why this might be.
Today the children were each given a number card and the whole class worked together to put themselves in order from smallest to largest. I was so impressed by the mature and mathematical conversations that went on! The whole class showed resilience and perseverance when it got tough and were able to help each other to correct mistakes and learn from them. Well done 4 Blyton. What a great start to 2016!
