Our topic for this term is Snap, Crackle and Pop. This is a science topic where the children will be looking at properties and changes of materials. They will:
- Compare and group materials together, according to whether they are solids, liquids or gases
- Observe that some materials change state when they are heated or cooled, and measure or research the temperature at which this happens in degrees Celsius (°C)
- Identify the part played by evaporation and condensation in the water cycle and associate the rate of evaporation with temperature
A very exciting topic I’m sure you will agree.
The children will be developing their sewing skills by designing and making a Christmas decoration, they will discover how a stuffed felt decoration is made and then design and make their own.
