Welcome to Year 4P's page! 

 

Throughout the year, Miss Platt and Mrs Hallen will keep you updated on our learning journeys, trips and any exciting events that may happen. 

There will also be links to any websites that the children could use at home to support their learning. However, please remember the importance of reading every night at home.

This half term, we have been discovering that materials have different states of matter and that each one has different properties. We have looked at how certain materials can change their state of matter like water. We now understand the meaning of new key words such as; evaporation, condenstation, melting, freezing, properties, molecules, water cycle and precipitation.
