Chemical changes in materials

 Our new topic of Science this week is ‘Materials and Chemical Changes’. The children started off by having a go at separating a bowl of substances such as: paper clips, sand, sugar and marbles. it was a testing challenge for them but they eventually solved it. They removed the paperclips with a magnet, tipped the remaining substances into a sieve to remove the marbles and then poured the sand and sugar solution through filter paper. The remaining sugar & water solution is sitting by our radiator waiting for the water to evaporate. It was a fabulous lesson and the children have written some very comprehensive instructions to prove their understanding. Well done Kestrels!
