Experimenting in Year 5

In Year 5 we have been looking at the properties of materials and experimenting with them by testing them to their limits! We have dissolved jelly in a variety of vessels and water temperatures; we have churned our own butter with arm-aching patience and teamwork and we have seen teabags fly through the sky when we set them alight! We have learned all about the different types of reactions we can see - reversible and irreversible - and we have conducted our own fair tests to make sure we are working as scientifically as possible.
