Materials and mixtures


In science we have been investigating which material is the best thermal insulator. To find this out we used 3 cups and wrapped each one in a different material. Inside of each one we had one ice cube and some water – evenly measured. To check what temperature each cup was we looked at our thermometers every 5 minutes.

We worked in groups of 4 and after the experiment we all used the knowledge we wrote down to make line graphs in maths.


In Science, we had been separating different materials. We used a range of materials. We were also learning about filtering, evaporation and sieving. In maths we have been learning about fractions and multiples.
