In the autumn term we learned about reversible and irreversible changes. We discovered iron rusts and considered ways to protect an iron nail. We enjoyed the practical aspects of this topic and liked experimenting with different substances, predicting what might happen and then observing the results carefully.
Our second autumn science topic was space. We learned about the planets in our solar system and chose planets to research. We learned about the phases of the moon and why we see the moon differently over the course of a month.
Our spring science topic is about humans and other animals. We looked at how to keep healthy and learned how to read nutrition labels on food packaging. We looked at the school lunch menu to check if the meals are balanced and designed a healthy menu for Mrs Yassin.
