Learning how to read thermometers.
Testing the temperature of water
What unit is temperature measured in?
Experiment to see which type of chocolate melts the fastest.
Which chocolate do you think would melt most quickly: milk, dark or white?
We timed each type of chocolate to see which would melt the quickest
Can you see the chocolate melting?
Will this chocolate melt more quickly than dark or plain?
How long will this chocolate take to melt?
Class 3 tested shoes with different grips to see which had the best friction.
Class 3 investigating friction.
What will happen if we change the angle of the slope?
How can we make the shoe move more quickly?
Using Jelly and oil to investigate friction.
What do you think we are investigating?
Would you be able to pick up the jelly?
Young scientists concentrating trying to pick up jelly.
Why is it so tricky to pick up the jelly?
Investigating fast and slow movement
What size will this bubble be?
How can we change the size of the bubbles?
What happens if we change the size of the hoop?
Why are my bubbles different sizes?
Investigating magnetic materials
Which end of a magnet will repel?
Investigation to see which rocks are hard wearing
How hard is this material?
What happens when we scratch this?
Separating different materials
Why can you use a magnet to separate rice and paper clips?
Why is a sieve is useful for separating flour and raisins
Filter paper can be used to separate sand and water.
Investigating with magnets
Class 3 testing if rocks are permeable or impermeable.
Experiment Equipment, can you guess what we were investigating?
Making our own digestive system.
We put the bananas and crackers in to a bag (mouth) and squashed them together.
We added water that acts as the saliva and continued to simulate chewing.
We added more water to represent stomach acid
The tights represent the intestines.
We had to make the food travel through the intestines
How do you think it felt?
The liquid was then drained away, this was the goodness that is sent around our bodies.
We were then left with the food we didn't need in the intestines.
This is the waste that our bodies get rid of.
This experiment made our hands very sticky.
How does the body get rid of waste?
Simulating the body ridding itself of the things that it doesn't need.
Can you name any parts of the digestive system?
Throughout the day we tracked the shadow of the bin
How do you think the shadow changed throughout the day?
Class 3 have been looking at roots
Class 3 have been growing plants
Can you guess what we have grown?
Look at the shape of our plants
Look at the direction the roots have grown.
