Good morning Year 4!

The very first thing I would like you to do is an online quiz I have made for you! Please follow this link, complete the quiz and write down your score for later.

For our home learning today, I would like you to play a sorting game. Please download the PowerPoint below. You will need to be on a desktop computer so you can move the pictures of different materials into whether they are a solid, liquid or a gas.  

Then Please watch the video below showing Mrs Watson explaining what solids, liquids and gases are. 

Lastly, you can then watch this video explaining more about solids, liquids and gases.
