Super Snow Experiment

Today we have been using the snow as part of a science experiment. We tested compact vs loose snow with a range of substances to decide which melts snow the best. Each group created a hypothesis and decided to test three materials to see which would work.

Augmented reality comes to Year 4

Posted by leannetelford in Uncategorized    

Today in science, we continued our work about the digestive system by using augmented reality to see inside our own bodies. Using a clever t-shirt and app, the children were able to investigate the role of different organs in our digestive and circulatory systems, it was very exciting!

Tudor Maths Challenge

Posted by leannetelford in Uncategorized    

Earlier in the week, the children received a wax-sealed letter from Henry VIII requesting their help to unlock the golden chest. Their task was to complete some addition challenges in order to crack the codes and unlock padlocks! Fortunately, they were able to break the code and find the antidote for Henry’s alchemist… phew!
