Changes that Matter!

Throughout this experience, the children are learning about the water cycle. They are also learning about the states of matter and how these are represented throughout the water cycle. The children will also be learning about the features of an explanation text in English. 


The children learnt about what happens to materials when they are heated or cooled. We held a science experiment in which children had to find the quickest way to melt something. We also completed a whole-class evaporation experiment and found the place in school which had the highest amount of evaporation. 


The children will be creating an explanation text about the the process of the water cycle. These will include all the features of an explanation text. The winning one will go onto TES for educators around the world to use, to help inform and teach others. You can see a few examples of our written work below, can you spot the headings, subheadings, diagrams, formal language and technical vocabulary in our work?

Discrete Experiences

Reading - We looked at the features of non-fiction explanation texts. We also read VArjak Paw and used our retrieval and inference skills to better understand the text.
