In Science we have been learning about materials and their physical properties. We have learnt about the difference between natural and manmade materials and we have used our knowledge of materials to predict which material would be best suited to building a house for The Three Little Pigs. We tested this and found that Lego brick was stronger than wooden sticks and paper straws. Then we found out that The Three Little Pigs had not listened to our results and they built their house from straw rather than Lego bricks like we had suggested. This resulted in a flood! So, we tested 3 different types of paper to find out which type of paper would be best suited to helping The Three Little Pigs clean up the water. We found that tissue paper and normal paper was not very absorbent, but that paper towel was the best option.
In science this week, we have continued exploring States of Matter. The children worked in groups of 5 to plan their own enquiry to investigate whether temperature impacts the rate of evaporation. The children had to consider the equipment they required, what they would be measuring/observing, how they would present their findings and most importantly, how could they ensure it was a fair test. The investigations will be carried out next week and I am already looking forward to the results!
Team LL have been thoroughly enjoying their science work linked to electricity and circuits. This week they have been generating possible investigation questions and creating vocabulary checklists. In pairs the children have chosen their own investigation question. They carried out their investigation and wrote up their findings.
