Otter Class Y4

Welcome to the Autumn Term

in Otter Class! 

In Otter class this week, we are having a science focus, learning about States of Matter. We are finding out how to tell the difference between solids, liquids and gases and what happens when materials are heated or cooled. It’s a lot of fun finding out about the world around us!

We investigated Oobleck (a cornflour and water mix) which has both liquid and solid properties - it was very messy but fun to play with.

Then we sorted materials into solids, liquids and gases. Some things are made up of more than one of them, which made the job tricky!

We conducted an investigation to decide where in the classroom Mr Matter could melt the margarine and chocolate he needed for his flapjack. (The cloakroom radiator might just be perfect)

We investigated the changing state of water. One of our challenges was to move water from the kettle to a bowl. We did this by boiling water to create steam. We then cooled it to allow condensation to run along the underside of a pan lid and into the bowl - magic!

Finally, to bring our Science week to a fantastic finish, we tested out what happens to gas if you add mentos to cola. It was explosive fun!

During our “Say No to Bullying” Week, we wrote Haikus about bullying and friendship which we read in assembly. They were very good!

We were so proud of our amazing Roman projects and were very excited to be able to invite the school into our Roman museum to show them all our hard work.

We enjoyed finding out about Roman gods, creating mosaics and making Roman honey cookies today - yum!

We created stick people today and then used the iPads to create stop motion animated videos.

Look at how much fun hard work can be in our maths fluency lesson today...

What handwriting super stars! These two are very proud to be the first in Year 4 to be invited for tea with Mr Hobbs to celebrate their beautiful writing.
