4D had a lot of fun in their Anglo Saxon topic this year. They especially loved going outside and writing their own names using the Anglo Saxon alphabet Runes. They had to use sticks as they could only write in straight lines!

4K had a brilliant Science, we completed an investigation about the weight of gases in a fizzy drink! Our results showed that Coke has the most carbon dioxide in it.

4D learnt a lot about teeth in Science. They were looking at how different substances can affect your teeth's enamel. They experimented on egg shells to see what would happen over time when left in vinegar, coffee and water. They found the vinegar egg had dissolved the whole shell leaving behind a squishy membrane.

Remember, you must protect your enamel! 🦷
