On the 28th April, Year 3 students had a solids and liquids incursion. They investigated the changes that occurred between solid and liquid matter when adding and removing heat.
"I learnt that wax melts before chocolate powder when placed in hot water. I also learnt that water takes a long time to evaporate"
"I learnt that a solid doesn’t flow like water or disappear into the air. I also learnt that melting is the process whereby heat changes something from a solid into a liquid. We melted wax and chocolate. The wax melted first. This incursion was the best I ever had. I learnt a lot about solid, liquid and gas!"
"The incursion had lots of chemicals and fire so we had to be careful. I learnt that solid can turn into liquid by melting and liquid can turn into solid by freezing. I have learnt a lot!"
