Mrs Romero's Science Challenge States of Matter
Here's an experiment you can do to practise your understanding of solids and liquids and their particles.
You need a grown up to help you because you will be melting chocolate!
You will need some milk chocolate, some biscuits, a spoon, a saucepan or bowl and a container which can go in the fridge.
1. Melt the milk chocolate in a saucepan or in a bowl in the microwave with the help of an adult.
2. Break up the biscuits into small chunks and mix them with the melted chocolate.
3. Put the mixture into the container and then into the fridge.
When you are eating your chocolatey, biscuity treat later, use scientific language like particles, solid and liquid to explain to your family how the chocolate turns from solid to liquid to solid and what happens to the particles in it.
When you go out for exercise play the solids, liquids and gases game. Shout gas and run fast really spread out from each other, liquid is a bit closer and a bit slower but still moving, solid you have to stand still.
Have fun and don't forget that science is all around you!
See you soon!
Please make an NHS appreciation poster for your window. We had fun creating ours!
I will share all posters on our class page so the whole class can see. In fact, you could think of a different creative way of showing your appreciation for our amazing NHS e.g. a poem, a model, researching the NHS and creating a fact sheet or a report using PowerPoint, etc. 😊
Here is the list of year 3 and 4 common exception words. Please check which spellings you know and continue to learn as part of your weekly home learning. Ask someone in your family to test you and write the spellings in your home exercise book.
You can use the look, cover, write, check method or other spelling strategies we have used in school e.g. pyramid writing, rainbow writing, etc.
I will be adding weekly spellings so keep checking our class page for updates.
