This week,Year 4 have conducted a science experiment to see whether the type of chocolate affects the speed in which it melts. We found that the white chocolate was the quickest to melt but the caramel, fruit and nut and dark chocolate took much longer. Check out our photos below!
 
In Maths, we have been learning mental strategies to solve simple addition and subtraction calculations. 
 
So many children in Year 4 received Token Economy jobs this week to receive extra tokens. Let's hope we get just as many next week so don't forget to apply! :)

This week in Year 4, we started off the week taking part in a Roald Dahl drama workshop all about Fantastic Mr Fox! We got to act out scenes from the book and we also recited some poetry. 
 
In Maths, we have been ordering and estimating the positioning of numbers on a number line and in English we have been story mapping a piece of text all about Charlie Bucket entering the chocolate factory.
