Is it magic or is it science?

We have been investigating an orange. We looked at its properties and then predicted whether it would float or sink in water. It floated!

Next we worked in groups to see if there was any way we could get the orange to sink. First we had a group chat ......

Then we tested out our ideas........

We all managed to make the orange sink!

As scientists we wrote notes about our thoughts and our findings.

Working as scientists we have been looking at what materials different objects around our school are made from. We looked at both our indoor and outdoor environments.

Once we had collected lots of information we thought carefully about why particular materials were used to make different objects. We thought carefully about the properties of the different materials. We also learnt some new scientific words.

We have been scientists in our outdoor learning environment looking for new signs of life.
