Hot chocolate!

Hot chocolate!

We made hot chocolate by following two very different recipes! The first included chilli and the second was made with solid chocolate. We had a great afternoon and was able to link our chocolate topic to our learning in science around States of Matter.

Science

In science¬†we learnt¬†about our teeth and how to take care of them. Ms Walker invited her mum, who works at Kings College Hospital’s Dental unit, to come and help us to understand how our teeth work.¬†During her visit, we were able to explore the function of our teeth as well as the amount of sugar that is found in some of our favourite treats. The results were truly shocking.

Later, we decided to test the effect of different liquids on our teeth. To do this we used eggs and observed how the shell changed after being left in the liquid for a few days. Year 4, please share what you found out by commenting below:

The British Museum

The British Museum

To start the academic year, we visitied the British Museum to learn all about the Romans! We had a wonderful day where we were able to learn all about the Roman army, Roman Gods and Roman artifacts. We used this information to write newspaper reports related to the famous Boudicca, Queen of Iceni tribe. Here are some of the pictures that were taken on the day. Perhaps, some of the Year 4 children can comment below to share some of the interesting things that we found out about the Romans.

Co-ordinates and translations

Co-ordinates and translations

Recently, we have been looking at co-ordinates and translations.

Do you remember that we “go along the corridor and then up the stairs?” That’s right, we look at the x-axis first, and then the y-axis.

Ok, here are 3 questions for you. Can you tell me the answers in the comments below? Dojos will be awarded!

Question One. What are the co-ordinates for the centre of this square?

Question two. How has the purple rectangle been translated?

Question 3. Whats your top score on Cartesian Alien?

Lines of Symmetry Investigation

Lines of Symmetry Investigation

This week in maths we have been exploring a range of shapes with varying features. We investigated the lines of symmetry in each shape by rotating the shape and folding it.

We found out the names of many different types of triangle and are beginning to compare these. Can anybody remember the names of the triangles that we looked at in class? Can you remember the features of each triangle?

5 Sentence Challenge

Year 4 have been learning about the various techniques used to add detail to sentences. These include using similes to begin our sentences, using the rule of three adjectives to describe and using personification!

It’s been a bust week in Year 4… I wonder if anybody is able to¬†describe the picture in just 5 sentences?
