Year 4 Teeth and Digestion (April 2021)

This half term, the children in Year 4 are learning about the purpose of teeth and how the digestive system work. So far, they have completed an investigation to discover the different jobs the teeth have and also an experiment to see how plaque can affect the enamel coating on our teeth. Below are some photos taken during the investigation.

Teeth and their jobs

Year 4 Egg Experiment

We watched a virtual Mad Science Assembly- 2nd October 2020

Plaque Attack- Friday 7th March 2020

Today, the children in Year 4 looked at the importance of cleaning their teeth properly. The children began by sorting out foods and activities which were good/bad for looking after teeth. They learnt about how plaque attacks their teeth and then used disclosing tablets to observe how much plaque they have on their teeth. 
The children then conducted an experiment to using eggs placed in different drinks to see the effect they have on the egg and therefore their teeth. The results will be in on Friday so watch this space. 

It's a Villain!! Wednesday 4th March

Today the Reception Class children helped to track down 1 of 3 villains in the outdoor area...the Evil Geese! With the help of a note from Super Duck and an antidote in hand once they tracked him down they made him explode! The children were fascinated in the changes they saw and couldn't stop talking about the villain they made explode.

 

Year 2 went to visit 'Bring Your Wellies'- Friday 28th February 2020

Making it rain in the classroom- 10th February 2020

In science, the Year 4 children have been looking at the different states of matter. Today, the children investigated how the water cycle works by creating their own version. 

The children filled a bowl with hot water, covered it with cling film and placed ice cubes on top. After a few minutes the children started to see water droplets appear on the underside of the cling film. These droplets merged together and then dropped into the water below, just like rain in the water cycle.

Below are some photos taken during the investigation.

Week beginning 10th February 2020

During our 'Keeping me Safe' Week the Nursery pupils explored nose blowing, keeping safe on the internet, washing our hands, brushing our teeth, foods that are good for us and we can eat lots of and foods which we should enjoy just a little of because they are sugary or fatty. We made fruit kebabs using bananas, blueberries, pineapple, apple, oranges and strawberries. 

Year 4 have been exploring  in Science- 3rd February 2020

Making cornflour slime

For the start of their science unit about States of Matter, The children in Year 4 enjoyed making cornflour slime or Ooblek as it is affectionately called by the children. 

The children discovered that when you pushed down on the slime it felt hard and had the properties of a solid but when it was placed in their hands, it ran freely and acted like a liquid.

The children had lots of fun playing with the Oobleck whilst learning about scientific concepts. 

Being  Healthy -  Wednesday 9th January

 Following on from Christmas the children took a look in Mrs Berry's shopping bag which was full of very unhealthy Christmas food!  The children helped Mrs Berry to sort the food into those that were healthy and unhealthy.

Year 5 visited Mount Carmel RC High School as part of a Science Enrichment Programme- Tuesday 5th November 2019
