Year 4 Scientists in Action

Read time: 1 minute

Year 4’s current Science topic is ‘States of Matter’. The children have especially been enjoying practical activities so far this term. In the photos you can see them learning to take accurate measurements using thermometers and a data logger.

To stimulate discussion in Science, teachers sometimes use ‘concept cartoons’ similar to the two photographed. Different theories are proposed in the cartoons. Our students discuss these and may be asked to pose alternative theories or give reasons why they agree or disagree with the cartoon characters. Sometimes the cartoons can be a starting point for an investigation and students then have to come up with a plan to collect data that proves their view is correct. 

The children have especially been enjoying practical activities so far this term. In the photos you can see them learning to take accurate measurements using thermometers and a data logger. They measured the temperature change over time for iced water, warm water and hot water. The students were able to spot trends in results and use these to make predictions.

As you can see, the Year 4 students really are budding scientists and we look forward to watching their practical skills develop over the course of the year.

Ms Jude Handscombe, Year 4 Teacher and Milepost 2 Leader
