Autumn 2 - States of Matter

In Autumn 2 we are working scientifically by:

  • Identifying and describing some solids, liquids and gases and grouping materials according to these properties
  • Observing how materials change state as they are heated or cooled and measure the temperature at which this happens in Celsius
  • Associating the rate of evaporation with temperature
  • Identifying the part played by evaporation and condensation in the water cycle


Spring 1 - Sound

During Spring 1 we are working scientifically by:

  • Describing how a sound is made using vibrations
  • Recognising that a sound travels through a medium to the ear
  • Finding patterns in the pitch and volume of the sound
  • Exploring patterns in the volume of the sound
