Class 3 have been enjoying their science topic this half term where they have been learning all about changing state. They have learnt that everything around us is matter and this matter can be in three different states; Solid, Liquid or Gas.
This afternoon, the children learnt that the temperature at which a substance changes its state from a solid to a liquid is known as its melting point.
They thoroughly enjoyed investigating different melting points of different foods, including, soft cheese, cheddar, chocolate and butter. They reflected on their findings by comparing the melting points of each food, including which had the highest melting point and which had the lowest melting point.
The classroom was filled with a lovely aroma of cheesy chocolate at the end of the day!
Great learning Class 3!
