Heathfields Infant & Wilnecote Junior

Spring Term Year 4

 

Year 4 have been investigating the question: how does toothpaste protect our teeth? We found out that the fluoride in the toothpaste protects our teeth from decay although it doesn’t protect it from acidic substances like vinegar!
 
For the second part of this afternoon, year 4 have been looking at the question: how does toothpaste protect our teeth? We have covered eggs in toothpaste and added vinegar or water to see the impact that this has!
Year 4 have been observing the results of our experiment to see whether we can damage our teeth this afternoon. We have found out that vinegar causes the most damaged to our teeth and milk causes the least damage to our teeth and actually forms a protective layer!
Year 4 have had a switch up this morning and are taking part in Woodland English! We are hunting for fronted adverbials and sorting them into the correct type before using them in sentences!
 
Year 4 enjoyed some nice, relaxing yoga after our lovely creative afternoon on Friday!
