We hope you enjoying seeing all the things we get up to in Class 4. We will include photos and examples of work we do in class and any useful documents and letters.

We have started our 10 week Positive Minds programme run by Watford FC. This week was an introduction to Mental Health. One task was to think about reasons why people may not want to talk about their mental health. We used 'Ellie the Elephant' to stick up all our ideas and talk about them as a class.
Class 4 now have a set of Micro:bits. The BBC Micro:bit is a pocket sized computer with lots of features you can program. This week, we programmed the Micro:bits to become fortune tellers, asking questions to see what the answer would be!

Science - September 2020
To kick off our 'Properties and Changes of Materials' topic, we had a go at Dancing Raisins.
This is a great investigation to see an interaction between the 3 states of matter - solid, liquid and gas. We wrote a prediction of what we thought would happen to the raisins when we put them in lemonade. Then we watched them dance and wrote down our observations.
