As scientists we will:
We will kick our science topic with a Chemistry workshop on Chemistry with cabbage. This includes:
A full day of real hands-on chemistry. Each pupil will do their own experiments, making indicators, testing household chemicals, looking at the properties of acids, do reversible and irreversible changes. We will cover KS2 materials, including evaporation, condensation, melting, dissolving, reversible reactions and states of matter.
To enthuse and engage the children the following links are a great resource
After we have finished reading Once,
