Year 4


Welcome to Year 4!

Welcome back! 

We have lots of exciting things planned for this half term which we are sure you are going to enjoy!

Our Autumn Term 2 Topic - Bottoms, Burps and Bile

Do you have a toothy grin or a dazzling smile?

We will do a range of activities to look at the impact of sugary substances on your pearly whites, as well as the purposes and uses of the various choppers in our mouth. We might even make some healthy alternatives too!

Do you know what happens to your food as it passes through your body?

We will follow food as it makes its way through the turbulent digestive system, helped by some mouth watering saliva... mmm! And lets not forget the importance of good hygiene, BOTH ENDS! We will make a working digestive system and use this to persuade others to eat healthily.

Do beans really give you wind? 

We work scientifically to get to the bottom of this age old question! Also, whilst we are talking business... could you identify an animal just by looking at its poo? Are you brave enough to take the challenge!

Our new topic "Bottoms, Burps and Bile" will have a Science focus looking at healthy choices, teeth and their purposes, the key elements of the digestive system and how we extract nutrients and energy from food. In short we will learn how to look after this marvelous belching, squelching, mixture-making machine we call our body!

Excited yet? Let's get going!
