Living together - Learning together
On this page you can see updates over the term of our activities and learning.
In Poppy Class we have been learning about different states of matter. Materials are either solids, liquids or gases.
First we sorted objects into these categories. Then we learnt that materials are made from particles which are so tiny they can’t be seen even with a microscope!
In solids the particles are packed together and just vibrate on the spot. In liquids they are close together and move with each other and in gases the particles spread out quickly in different directions. We then went outside to show this in practice. The children loved this activity.
Here are some of their comments:
“I thought it was really fun.”
“It was fun in a working way.”
“It helped me to understand solids, gases & liquids.”
“It was fun learning about it like this.”
Who knew science could be such fun and so energetic?
