  • Tooth Decay Results, Smoothie Bikes and Orienteering

    Published 25/04/23

    We've had a busy start to the Summer Term!

    Last week we observed the results of our tooth decay experiment. We discovered the effects of the following substances on tooth enamel: Coca-Cola, vinegar, coffee and water. The children could see the staining that Coca-Cola and coffee caused to the egg shell, that the egg shell stayed the same in water, but were horrified that the egg shell disintegrated in the vinegar!

    We pedalled our smoothies to perfection to help raise money for our Forest, Field and Fun initiative on Thursday. 

    The day before Juniper Hall, we got outside and brushed up on our orienteering skills, ready for our geography field skills trip to Juniper Hall this week!

  • Tooth Decay!

    Published 29/03/23

    Over the last couple of weeks, in science, the children have been learning about how to keep teeth healthy! We have discussed how certain types of food can lead to cavities and to support the children's understanding we have set up an investigation using eggs. The shell of an egg is made from a similar substance as enamel, and we are looking forward to seeing if there are any changes in the eggs' shell which have been put into jars of water, vinegar, coca-cola and coffee! What do you think will happen?

  • Marshmallow Mouths

    Published 28/02/23

    We have started learning all about the digestive system in Year 4 and thoroughly enjoyed making replica mouths out of marshmallows. Children learnt that the digestive system starts with our teeth, the names of the teeth and where our food travels and how fast! Did you know it takes 6 seconds for your mouthful of food to reach your stomach? We are all looking forward to the Science Museum trip and 'It Takes Guts' show later in the term.
