Melting moments02 Dec 2021
Form 3 have been investigating which materials melt and what happens when they cool.
This week the children headed off to the Science Centre for their lesson. They were going to explore melting and cooling of materials. They started by making predictions about whether certain materials would melt and which ones would return to their original state when cooled. Then we heated the various materials in beakers using a Bunsen burner so the children could check their predictions.
In Maths, the children are solving division problems, with assistance from sharing circles and counters, as well repeated subtraction on a blank number line.
In Humanities, the children have been exploring the daily lives of the Aztecs. They learned how to play the board game Patolli and challenged a partner to a game. There were lots of instructions to remember, but it was fun to play.
