Year 4: Marvellous Meerkats

Miss Williams teaches our Marvellous Meerkats.

 

17th October We've been busy making (and eating) some tooth friendly scones today - the smell throughout the school was amazing!

12th October: Meerkats continue to be the top class in the school on Spelling Shed for the fourth week running - go Meerkats! If you haven't logged on yet, you are missing out on a really fun, interactive way to learn your weekly spellings.  We have also won the school SumDog mascot this week for the class who has been the most accurate when calculating on the Sumdog App! Fantastic effort from everyone this week- well done!

6th September: Year 4 is going to be an amazing year, and what better way  to start off our learning journey than with our Burps, Bottoms and Bile topic!

Open wide – let’s look inside! We’re on a voyage of discovery to investigate the busy world inside your body.

This half term, we’ll have a visit from a dental technician and ask lots of questions. We’ll find out about different dental procedures and learn new scientific vocabulary. At school, we’ll use this information to write toothy fact files. There will be lots of investigating as we learn about our different teeth, how to brush them and how sugary drinks affect them. We’ll examine the amount of sugar in different foods and create images of ourselves with healthy and unhealthy teeth. We’ll write a story describing the journey a piece of food takes through the digestive system. In science, we’ll learn about the organs involved in digestion and make our own 3D digestive systems in D&T. We’ll also learn about digestion in different animals.
