Earth and Space

To start our topic, we investigated  the Earth, Moon and Sun and their movements. We used different spherical objects to create a scaled version of them. We then investigated the movement and length of our shadow, over time, to understand the rotation of the Earth and the position of the Sun throughout the day.


Properties of materials

So far this half term, we have learned about properties of materials like of they are solids, liquids and gases and whether they or soluble or insoluble.

Our first experiment was to investigate which solids are soluble or insoluble when added to a liquid.

We have had to plan our experiments to decide on the independent variable, dependent variable and controlled variables, we have then made a prediction, recorded our results and written conclusions.

Which solids are soluble and insoluble?

Which equipment would be best to separate solids and liquids?
