White Eagle class undertook a Science Experiment for their States of Matter topic this term, whereby they had the opportunity to investigate various substances that dissolve and those that do not, using variables of hot and cold water as well as learning all the names of Scientific apparatus and the process of an investigation. Pupils had to initially discuss and write up their hypothesis within their groups, based on scientific knowledge, followed by undertaking the experiment at various stations- there were 5 altogether; Salt station, Sugar station, Sand station, Glitter station and Oil station. Pupils then observed the solutions very carefully to see which were soluble and which ones were insoluble, and they recorded their observations in a table and later conveyed the data in the form of a graph.
