Sink and Float - Experiments

Sink and Float - Experiments

Science experiments are a great way to encourage children’s curiosity and engagement. They help children to make connections with real life experiences and provides a way to understand the world. The concept of sinking and floating is fun to explore and promotes critical thinking. The hands-on experiments in this resource, allow children to observe which objects sink or float in water. In a playful way the children will become familiar with making predictions, observations, identifying, sorting, reasoning, gathering data, comparing and evaluating. This resource contains: A clear explanation (with examples) of how to use this resource Two posters for your classroom to help visualize the concepts of sinking and floating. Various recording sheets to record the experiments. (differentiated): Sink or Float? (cut and paste pictures to record the result after testing Test and Sort ( testing, identifying and recording results) Make a Prediction (creating a visual record of prediction, and observation. Evaluate prediction in comparison to result with a smiley) Predict and Test ( data handling: create a more abstract record of prediction and observation) Step by step description of conducting the following experiments (incl. photo’s and explanation of why it works this way): Experiment: Do eggs sink or float? Experiment: Does an orange sink or float?

Charley and the Book Factory Class Assembly - **Fully Editable**

Charley and the Book Factory Class Assembly - **Fully Editable**

This script was written for a Year 6 class close to the national tests. It is intended to highlight everything they have been studying the entire year. As the script is fully editable, the topics that don't fit your class can be easily changed to suit your group (so really could be used for any age group). The play follows the theme of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory except it is a book factory and Wonka's golden tickets are hidden inside SATs revision books (could be changed to any type/genre of book for different year groups). Charlie only cares about studying and getting good grades but is thrilled to win and hopes to get a few more books from Mr. Wonka. Other kids want to win because they think that Mr Wonka will reveal some secrets that teachers have been hiding (like answers to SATs questions). Inside the book factory, the children tour different rooms. The first room is where story ideas begin. Kids review different types of writing and definitions can be shown on whiteboard or flipchart behind (devices such as 'flashbacks', 'informal vs formal', 'metaphors and similes'). The second room is like a laboratory and the competitive kids compete to show off their science knowledge (any science topics can be covered here - although the script covers properties of materials, sound, life processes, teeth and forces/gravity). The third room is a technology room, where a children compete to answer math questions (and demonstrate what they have learned). Questions covered include percentages of numbers, area of rectangles, converting km to m, decimals and fractions as well as reading coordinates. There are 14 main speaking character parts, 4 'nameless' speaking student parts and 6 non-speaking oompa loompas. The student parts can be split up to create more roles. There are plenty of opportunities for extra non-speaking roles and props people. The play should take between 15-25 minutes to perform. The resource is a word document and as mentioned fully editable. I hope your class enjoys it as much as mine did!

Year 3 Science, Pushes and Pulls, display and worksheets

Year 3 Science, Pushes and Pulls, display and worksheets

Hi all, We've started a new topic on science this term - Forces, pushes and pulls. So, this is what I've done so far: A starter display and two worksheets for the children complete. I'll add to the display as the term goes on and upload them. They're not differentiated, so you'll have to do that yourself, but to be fair most of my class managed this with just some discussion and a word bank on the whiteboard. Have fun! Emlo.
