In Science, we have been learning about ‘Materials and their properties. The children have been carrying out various experiments related to dissolving and preserving an ice cube.
Through this, they have been able to identify that the variables they need to think about when conducting a fair test: independent variable; dependent variable and the Controlled variable.
The children have shown great enthusiasm when conducting experiments and especially enjoyed to know what a solution is and when a solution is saturated. They have also been learning how to make predictions and justify them. They now have a much better understanding how to conduct a fair test.
