Year 4/5 have enjoyed lots of practical science investigations this term. We predicted and tested materials to see whether they were soluble or insoluble. We had to separate a mixture into different materials using magnets, sieves and water to dissolve the sand to separate it from sand. We explored gravity and air resistance by creating and testing parachutes.
In our topic work we looked at life in ancient China. We researched and cooked Chinese food; we made oracle bones from clay and etched symbols we had designed into the surface. In science we learnt all about solids, liquids and gases. We had to learn the properties of what determined each state and use correct scientific vocabulary to describe each one.
