As scientists we will find out how creatures are adapted to their habitats and create our own classification system.
Summer Term 1 - States of Matter
As scientists the children will be exploring different materials, sorting them and developing descriptions of the states of matter; solid, liquid or gas. They will observe that some materials change state when heated or cooled and apply this to their research on the water cycle where water exists in all three states.
Spring Term 1
This half term our science topic is sound. We will learn that all sounds are made by objects vibrating and that sound can travel through gases, liquids and solids. Investigations into vibrations will include making a string telephone. As part of our learning we will also examine the structure of the ear and identify why sometimes it is important to prevent sounds travelling.
