During Science this afternoon the pupils in Birch have been investigating if using a range of everyday products such as salt, flour, oil, sugar, rice, lime juice and hot chocolate would dissolve or not when added to cold water. The pupils then transferred the results of the findings into a carroll diagram and discussed the results individually whether or not the water dissolved and was clear or if the product changed the colour of the water. Mrs Kennedy decided to change the experiment and add the salt to hot water to see what difference it made. One child stated that ” This wouldn’t be a fair test because the rest was used in cold water not warm”. A good range of scientific vocabulary was used throughout this experiment and group discussion.
