As part of our topic on the Egyptians we have learned all about the process of mummification. Since it would be cruel to practise making a mummy out of one of our friends, we prepared some tomatoes for mummification instead.
We had to scoop all the insides out and get rid of as much moisture as possible. The Ancient Egyptians used natron to help dry out the bodies but we sued table salt instead. We will check back in a week to see how they are coming along.
On Tuesday this week, we examined the eggs that had been left in various liquids over the bank holiday weekend. We discovered that the eggs left in the vinegar and lemon juice had changed the most – the shell had mostly been dissolved by the lemon juice, and the shell had gone completely from the egg in the vinegar!
Today, Year 4 set up an experiment using fizzy drinks and eggs to show the impact of these drinks on our teeth. We will investigate them next week to see what damage the drinks have done to the eggs.
As part of our literacy topic on persuasive writing this term, we are learning about the impact of deforestation on animals and their habitats. This week we learned about food chains and thought about food chains in our local environment. We went in to the garden area to see if we could see any food chains in action.
We have been learning about human digestive systems and teeth. We worked in a team to create models of a human’s lower jaw. We made sure to include the 4 main types of teeth – the incisors, canines, premolars and molars. Have a look at our models and tell us what you think!
Well done to our skippers in Year 4 who put on a fantastic performance on Friday.
Overall, our team won 3 bronze, 13 silver, and 9 gold medals!
We came second place in the skipping dance, and second place over all out of the 4 schools that took part.
Today we have used the Espresso Code Website to explore repetition and loops. We have made stopwatches, and animations using timings!
Today, year 2 investigated the properties of materials. They used different words to describe them such as soft, hard, stretchy and sticky. They really enjoyed their investigation!
