States of Matter

Year 4 looked at states of matter in outdoor learning. We talked about the three states of matter – solid, liquid and gas – and discussed that we saw water in all three states. Last week, we had talked about the steam that came from the kettle.

We then predicted whether a solid (chocolate) would melt and become a liquid if we increased the heat. We thought it would – and it did!

Some of us then poured the liquid chocolate into a mould and we predicted whether we thought it would turn back into a solid if we removed the heat.

We predicted that it would and again, we were right. Mr Ball wasn’t sure what to do with the chocolate then, but the class had an idea and so did Mrs. Corbett!
