Our enquiry - Why does it snow?

Year 4 are starting the year as scientists! We will  be looking at the characteristics of solids, liquids and gases before focusing our attention on conducting scientific investigations. We will be setting up simple practical enquiries to look at the melting speed of different solids, and measuring temperature changes over time. We shall then use this data to draw simple conclusions and present our findings. Finally, we will look closely at the water cycle and consider our enquiry question: Why does it snow?


Alongside our enquiry we will be reading Robert Swindells's novel 'Ice Palace'

We are back! Start of year 4 has been a nice busy one. We are very excited about our new enquiry, ‘Why does it snow?’, which we launched this week. During our wow day, we made snow and observed the similarities and differences between fake and real snow (we also had lots of fun making finger angels!). To ensure that others could make snow whenever they wanted, we also created ‘cooking show’ style instructional videos.


Maths has started off this year with place value. We have been developing our knowledge of 4 digit numbers by partitioning and identifying the values of individual digits. In RE, we have begun our year by studying creation. We have been learning about what it mean to be a steward of creation and linking our knowledge to Pope Francis’ speech form ‘World Youth Day’.
