A Material World

Working with Y5 on their science day.

Y5 Amethyst

Amethyst class had a Science day yesterday, and what a treat it was!

We are learning about materials and their properties, and we had a whole range activities to work through: sorting and comparing materials; testing insulation; separating mixtures and solutions; and experimenting with reversible and irreversible changes. We also had a special guest teacher: Mr Sieczkarek.

Here were are engrossed in our various tasks:

Mrs Lohoar, Mr Sieczkarek and Mrs Kirk were so impressed with how scientifically everyone was able to think when tackling their tasks and their challenge cards.

We also recognised our first Science Star of the year. Well done!

Can you predict which material would be the best insulator out of these: foil, bubble wrap, cardboard, felt or cotton wool?
