Our science learning in Year 7 has focussed on understanding the properties of solids, liquids and gases. Mr R and his team have helped the pupils to be able to define and describe the characteristics of each matter.
We have used different activities to help with this learning. The pupils have enjoyed using the science sorting cards. Each property has a corresponding sequence of cards stating what the matter can do, and then cards containing examples.
We have been learning about how the particles for each property are different. The pupils have completed a worksheet showing how each matter is defined by the closeness of the particles to one another.
Year 7 have also had some practical fun exploring the properties. The pupils particularly enjoyed their time playing with some balloons.
