Year 4 have begun a new science topic – states of matter. In order to understand solids, liquids and gases, the children became them! They went out into the yard and started as a gas particle, this meant they had to spread out and move around quickly. They then became a liquid particle by staying close together but moving around each other. Finally they became a solid. This involved them standing shoulder to shoulder and moving very slightly on the spot. The children then went off into smaller groups and we played a game of ‘guess the state of matter’ where they had to become either a solid, liquid or gas and the rest of the children had to guess which they were.
