Class 3/4H Learning 2019-2020
Welcome to Class 3/4H, enjoy looking through our gallery below to share in some of our experiences:
Through our science lessons this week we have been finding out about the main functions of our digestive system. We had a lot of fun, exploring the effect of saliva on crackers and watching a model demonstration of how our digestion works. The photos below capture some of what we did in class:
For our preparation for Harvest we chose to compare how we celebrate Harvest along side how the Hindu culture celebrate Harvest too. We enjoyed making kites to share in one of the aspects celebrated in India, along with cooking in traditional Hindu ways, making ‘Ghee’ and ‘Pongal.’
Whilst thinking about surviving on the island (as Michael) we thought about how to clean water. We began exploring this process in science as we explored filtration to clean water, by separating the particles. We were surprised by the results.
In maths, our year 4 children investigated different ways to show numbers that rounded to 5,000, using 14 counters they found many ways, and knew there were more possibilities to find. They realised that if they had 5 thousands, then they had to keep the hundreds to 4 or below, if they had 4 thousands, then they had to ensure that the hundreds were over 5. We all enjoyed this investigation as part of solving problems with rounding numbers to the nearest 1,000.
We created a fair test to test our the theories behind where flavours are tasted on our tongue.
Through RE we enjoyed exploring the artefacts to show what is included and how to make a puja tray.
We have enjoyed finding out about our teeth, naming them and finding out about tooth parts. As we have been thinking about tooth care we set up an investigation to explore the effects of different liquids on our tooth enamel.
We were surprised to find one shell has practically disappeared, whilst being shocked at how one egg had increased in it size so much that it wouldn’t come out of the jar.
