Year 4 Blackbirds & Dunlins


This week year 4 have been completing lots of different science experiments in line with our topic “What’s the matter”. Photo 1 and 2 shows our jacket potato experiment where we had to think of ways to keep it warm as long as possible. Photo 3 shows how we experimented with different ways of melting an ice cube, changing its state from a solid to a liquid.
