Here in Year 4 we have had a couple of very busy weeks. We have been learning about adding and subtracting in maths and have been showing our understanding by demonstrating the method using coloured bricks and place value grids.
Our Topic this term is The Railway Revolution and last week we each acted out a part of the Rainhill Trials. This was where steam engines competed in a race to win a £500 prize.
Finally, to investigate how materials change states we looked at the fastest way to melt chocolate. Everyone had lots of fun seeing how fast it would melt in different temperatures of water and in our hands. (As well as eating it at the end of the lesson)
