Year 5 Science Week
Class: Year 4/5: Quartz Year: 2023 - 2024
We had an amazing week focusing on Properties and Changes of Materials. The children could not believe that every morning we did two different experiments.
We compared materials according to their properties, we tested materials based on their thermal conductivity, and gave reasons for their use. We then thought about how and why materials dissolve, and how some form solutions and others mixtures. We were set a task to separate mixtures and solutions, after am accident had happened in a local suppermarket. On the final day we created a gas!!! By using bicarbonate of soda and vinegar we saw how these created a chemical change when they were mixed together.
