We have three Learning Challenges this term; this is what we will be learning about:
How could we cope for a day without electricity? -We will be finding out just how important electricity is in our everyday lives. We will talk about how electricity is made and how it gets to our homes. We will also be learning how to keep ourselves safe when using electricity! Later on, we will be able to investigate the properties of conductors and insulators before creating our own circuits.
Why were the Romans so powerful and what did we learn from them? -We will start our learning challenge by finding out who the Romans were and where they came from. We will do research on their army and we find out how the Romans came to be such powerful fighters. By the end of the Learning Challenge we should be able to create our own weapons to defend an empire!
The aim of our Learning Challenge is to explain what the Romans ever did for us and we will be thinking about the impact the Roman Empire has had on our own lives.
What happens to the food we eat? – Before Christmas, we will be finding out more about our bodies and what happens when we eat! This Science Learning Challenge is not for the faint hearted and will see us creating models of our teeth and other parts of the digestive system. We will also talk about healthy eating and keeping our teeth clean.

Oral Health and Diet Workshop (27.9.18)
Class 4 had a talk with some dental nurses who showed us how we should brush our teeth and what can happen if we don’t visit a dentist regularly. We were also very shocked to know how much sugar is in our favourite snacks and drinks! 25 teaspoons of sugar in a large bag of Haribo!
