Science

The first topic of the term for Year 4 is ‘Lights, camera, action!’. We have turned ourselves into scientists looking at different aspects of light and sounds. Today, we were given a pile of resources and the challenge to make a simple circuit to light up a bulb. We had a few funny creations but after a little bit of tweaking we all managed to create a fully functioning simple circuit, hurray!

Maths

 

In maths, Year 4 have been looking at negative numbers. As a starter to one of our lessons we went into the hall where each was then given a number between -50 and 50. They had to communicate with each other (teachers didn’t say a word!) to order themselves from the smallest up to the biggest number. With a few tweaks, we were third time lucky and mastered it by the end!

 

Science - Reflections

 

In Year 4, we have been looking at reflections; materials that reflect light well; what happens when light is reflected and how we see light that is reflected. We carried out an investigation looking at a variety of materials to which one reflected the most amount of light.
