What am I learning this term?
Curriculum Overview Year 5
Properties of Materials
This term Year 5 have been looking at properties of materials.
The children have been using a range of materials to make their own glue. They were given sugar, salt, flour, cornflour and bicarbonate of soda. They had to mix each material with water to see which one would make the best glue.
Film canister rockets!
There’s nothing like a little rocket science to add some excitement to the children's day!
Year 5 made their own mini rockets using film canisters. Once you add the water alka-seltzer tablet it starts to dissolve. This creates a gas call carbon dioxide. As the carbon dioxide is being released, it creates pressure inside the film canister. The more gas that is made, the more pressure builds up until the cap it blasted down and the rocket is blasted up.
