Week 2

We have had another great week in Year 4 this week! 


We have been so busy with our learning. This week we started our new program for well-being called 'My Happy Mind'. In our first session we learnt all about the different parts of our brain and what happens when we challenge ourselves and learn something new.  We now know that when we learn something new or challenge ourselves our brain grows, this is called neuroplasticity, in our Friday assembly we reflected on what we had learnt and challenged ourselves with this week.


In our Maths work we have been continuing with our chilli challenges for place value, everyone showed great resilience. 


In our writing we have been continuing with our instruction work, learning all of the key features needed in a set of instructions. 


In Science this week we have been learning all about how to take care of our teeth, we now know lots of facts! We all took part in an investigation into how different liquids affect our teeth. 

We used eggs as representations of our teeth and added lots of different liquids. We then made predictions about what we thought would happen to the eggs in each liquid, next week we will record the results. Take a look at the photos!
