Class R had loads of fun this week learning all about solids, liquids, and gases. We discussed examples of these states of matter and looked at their particle structure. This helped us when it came to doing our rocket experiment. We used a solid mixed with a liquid to create the gas that launched syringe our rocket! We also made links back to our previous topic (How Does Your Garden Grow?), looking at how flowers drink water, using food colouring to change to flowers colour. As well as this, we took advantage of the weather and learnt about rain. We put out various pots in different places to see how much rain fell over a 24 hour period.
What a busy week we had!
