Year 4 investigated bubbles. They attempted to make the smallest bubble possible, create a ‘foam sausage’, make bubbles inside bubbles and balance smaller bubbles on bigger bubbles, with wands made of willow. Maths skills were required for estimating the age, diameter and height of trees. Some of the common trees in the school grounds were identified by using leaf ID sheets to classify them. They identified minibeasts and their body parts, using a key, before creating their own from clay. In the forest they made habitats for woodlice and even found time to relax and read in the shade, enjoying pancakes they had made! Finally, a morning of water experiments kept them cool in the heat.
