Kitchen Water Cycle
We carried out an experiment so we could observe water move through the states of matter, evaporation, condensation and precipitation.
The steam (water vapour) coming out of the kettle represented evaporation.
We held a baking tray containing ice cubes just above the steam. The cold baking tray caused water vapour to condense and form droplets on the bottom of the plate. Some of the droplets became large enough to fall - just like rain!
As part of our Mighty Me topic we looked at how to draw our own self-portraits. Year 5 really enjoyed the activity and produced super self-portraits. They also thought of words that best described who they are, what they can do and what they know. They used these words to decorate their names.
We worked in groups to design our body boxes. We had to think of items that we could use to represent the lungs, heart, stomach, liver, kidneys and large and small intestines. We had super fun making, displaying and labelling the organs.
