All too often science can become knowledge based where pupils learn about facts and information. Today was about investigating, predicting and making direct observations. Our focus today was to use techniques of filtering, separating, sieving and sorting materials. It was great fun mixing different materials together and then investigating to see if they could be separated.
As part of our Science work we began by thinking about how we can recognise materials often just by touching them. Without looking we had a little bag full of of mystery items. We soon began to piece together the clues to work out what each item was. One or two surprised us !
Wow, a great start to day one of a new term with New Displays in class and fabulous work completed at home. Already we have castles and map work which make our classroom an exciting place to be.
