This term the Year 6’s have become Change Detectives. We started the term looking at a Mess Scene where students had to investigate what may have happened to the various objects. From a bottle of perfume that had been tipped over, to some chocolate that had been burnt through, to an Ice Block that had been left out of the freezer a little too long. Through the term we have then dived deeper into each of these scene’s, investigating topics such as melting, evaporation, dissolving, chemical reactions and burning candles. Last week it felt like 6Y travelled to the Dead Sea! Our investigation was dissolving salt to see whether 100ml or 200ml’s of water could hold more salt.
