Chemical changes

The children in Year 4 are really excited about starting their new topic in Science on chemical changes. In this topic we will be looking at what happens when two chemicals react with each other and recognising if this reaction is reversible or irreversible.

In our first science lesson we talked a lot about the safety procedures we need to follow in these lessons. We then watched our first chemical reaction called Green Fire!

Game making in Kodu

Year 4 Robins have today been get familar with programming using Kodu – a 3D game developing platform.

The children were asked to explore the program and see if they could insert a Rover to move around and collect coins. The coins should vanish once the Rover bumps into them. Points should also be awarded when each coin is collected.

Some of the children grasped today’s task and really enjoyed Kodu.

Designing and making bread

Year 4 Robins have been designing and making their own bread.

We began by collecting ideas for our design by tasting a variety of different breads, looking at the texture, flavour and shape.

Then we came up with a range of different ideas to meet the design specification that was given to us.

After choosing a final design, we then spent the whole day baking our own bread based on our design.

A big thank you to Mr Brunetti for coming in to help us!
