Today's Afternoon Learning
SCIENCE-Thursday 7th January
In science this week we are starting our new topic 'States of Matter'. We will be learning about solids, liquids and gases over the next few weeks. Our introduction activity is to look at the sorting sheet attached above and sort the materials into three groups- Solids liquids and gases. See if you can look around your home and garden and add a few more of your own on to each list. You may want to print the sheet off and cut them out to sort them into groups. You could also make your own cover page for this topic, like we do in school, on a blank piece of paper if you have time.
