Good Morning Year 4 and Parents,

 

Welcome to Tuesday and today's suggested resources below. 

 

We are nearly at the end of the King of Fishes and will be moving on shortly. In our curriculum we will now be looking at the digestive system. 

 

Science Experiment:

It is easy to complete your own science experiment about tooth decay and its a good reminder to reduce your intake of sugary substances.

 

Take 4 cups, 4 eggs, 4 liquids 

 

In the first cup; fill with a fizzy drink, place an egg inside.

 

In the second; cup fill with water, place an egg inside.

 

In the third cup; fill with milk, place an egg inside.

 

In the fourth cup; fill with orange juice (any juice), place an egg inside.

 

Leave the cups for 5 days in cool, dry place and wait to see which egg shell will erode the quickest. Check the cups each day to see progress. You might want to predict a liquid first. At the end, lift the eggs out and look at the shells. You will be surprised. Which one eroded the most?

 

You can email any photos to the office. 

 

Question of the day:

 

Yesterday answer: 1953 

 

The Queen's coronation took place on Tuesday 2 June 1953 at Westminster Abbey. ... Her coronation took place 16 months after she became Queen. She actually became queen on 6th Feb 1952. She is now the longest ever reigning monarch of Great Britain, beating Queen Victoria.
