I love this picture! The girls are working so well as a team. They are all co-operating and carrying out their own individual roles: timing, observing, recording and carrying out the investigation. Their concentration and enjoyment are palpable!
Girls are under-represented in the field of Science. Perhaps these four will go some way to redressing the balance!
Our Science lessons involved planning and carrying out our own investigations into how our stomachs digested the food we eat. To find out more we used a Ziplok bag as our stomach and orange juice (which contains citric acid) to act as the gastric juices. We timed how long it took a piece of bread to dissolve.
After that, we devised our own investigation to find out if we could change things. We wanted to find out
a) if the amount of juice we used would make a difference
b) if changing the liquid we used would increase the speed of digestion - we used vinegar (which is acetic acid), apple juice and water, and
c) if different food digested at different speeds
We planned our work carefully, all took different roles in the actual experiment, made observations, compared results and drew conclusions.
Well, hello and welcome back to Jubilee School! How have you been? It's been one of the weirdest years I can remember but now we are all back together we can look forward to an amazing year in our new Year3/4 Tokyo bubble. As Major Tom says, " Tomorrow will be a better day". We have made a brilliant start to the new term, settled into our new routine really quickly and sensibly and I think we are all raring to go with some great new learning. Keep your eyes on this page for news of some of the fabulous things we get up to!
We have begun our What A Wonderful World topic by listening to the famous song by Louis Armstrong and another very different version by Joey Ramone.
We have begun our new English reader "Charlotte's Web" and have explored the emotions and feelings of characters in the early chapters.
