Welcome to the Pallister Park Y4 page!
Our topic for this half term is Burps, Bottoms and Bile!
In Science, we will be learning about the digestive system and the importance of teeth. We will be carrying out an investigation with boiled eggs to see how different liquids affect the shells. Pupils will be able to compare the eggshells to their teeth’s enamel to understand the effects of sugar and acid.
In English, we will be writing adventure stories and an explanation text based on ‘My Life as a Burger’. Pupils will be explaining how food travels through the digestive system.
