During science this week the children have been observing materials which change state when heated or cooled. The children were given a variety of materials and had to make a table to predict whether they thought the object would melt either at room temperature or at boiling point or if it would even melt at all. The children then used a designing experiments tool to plan what they were going to do. Following on from this the children then created another table similar to their first one to record their findings. The children enjoyed really enjoyed this activity and a lot of their predictions were correct!
Properties of gases
This week the children have been identifying and exploring the properties of gases. The children began their lesson by identifying some gases, they were able to identify a few but the focus of the lesson was air. They explored its properties and were able to give examples of how it is used. Following on from this some of the children were able to describe the differences between solids, liquids and gases and were able to expand their explanations using a diagraph to show the particles in each.
Solids and liquids
During our science lesson, we compared solids and liquids and identified their properties. Following on from this, the children were able to identify objects that were in the form of a solid or liquid and give an explanation as to why they took this form.
This week in science, we have been identifying different types of teeth and exploring how to keep them healthy. In groups, we identified the different types of teeth and there position in our mouths. Following on from this, we designed a poster to show how to keep our teeth healthy.
This week the children have been learning about our digestive systems. The children have explored each part of the system, and its different functions.
In Science, we have learnt about skeletons and how they help our bodies. We looked at what makes a skeleton and how it helps our bodies. In groups, we assembled a skeleton and labelled the different parts.
During this week, the children have been learning about the different food groups and the importance of them. The children then had to write a menu for a client based on their needs thinking carefully about which types of food would be best for them.
