In term 2, year 5 have been investigating lots of mysterious samples sent by the chief alchemist on Alchemy Island. We tested the properties of each sample to learn more about them and try to work out what they were made from. We also used filtering, evaporation and condensation, sieving and magnetism to separate solids and liquids from water within solutions and suspensions to clean water samples from The Bottomless Well.
Year 3 have been enjoying our Term 2 ' Forces and Magnets' topic so far! We have started off the topic by investigating whether different materials around the classroom are magnetic and then we tried to answer the investigation question 'Can we block magnetism?'
