Year 4 – Discovering angles

Today, we have been looking at different types of angles in our playground. We saw right angles, obtuse angles and acute angles. A right angle is when 2 straight lines meet at 90°. We used the corner of our books to check if an angle was a right angle or not. An acute is less than 90°. An obtuse angle is more than 90° but less 180°.

Can you spot the different angles in our pictures? We found lots!

Looking out for danger at Hazard Alley

On Monday the 30th of November Years 3 and 4 went to the Safety Centre in Milton Keynes to learn about potential dangers, how to avoid them and what to do in emergency situations.

We were taken around the centre and had the chance to explore 12 different scenarios. These ranged from everyday hazards at home to the dangers of railway lines and electricity substations.

We learnt just how dangerous railway lines are and why you should stay well back from the platform edge.

Building sites are full of hazards. If you are ever invited on to one, make sure you are wearing the correct protective clothing.

Every child had the opportunity to make a 999 emergency call. We had to ask what service we needed and tell the person clearly what had happened and exactly where we were.

Even with all these dangers out there, the most common place to have an accident is in your home. We looked at all the potentially hazardous things in our homes too.

We learnt about the damage that fire can cause. How quickly it can spread and what to do in an emergency.

Get out. Call the fire brigade out. Stay out.

All of the Home Learning models that have come in so far have been fantastic.

We have had various explosions and eruptions taking place from a diverse range of volcanoes

Changing state

In science we have been exploring the 3 different states of materials.

Water exists quite commonly in all 3 states – ice, water and water vapour

We predicted what would happen to the state, the shape, the colour and the temperature of ice if coloured ice cubes were left in a cup at room temperature.
