Science

 

States of Matter

 

Learning Objective:

To understand that some materials act as thermal insulators and can help to keep something hot or cold for longer.
To use observation and knowledge to answer scientific questions.

 

 

Key Knowledge questions/ Key Facts/ Key Skills:

Think about what you have learned so far and answer the following questions.
1. What are the three main states of matter?
2. Give some examples of each of them.
3. What are the characteristics of the three states of matter?
e.g. solids have a fixed shape.

4. What do we call the process where a liquid (water) changes to a gas?
5. What do we call the process where a gas (steam) changes to a liquid?

 

Key Vocabulary

Solid, liquid, gas, state, matter, heat, cold, melt, solidify, freezing, temperature, thermometer

 

Learning Activities

• Last week we did an investigation to find out which material kept the ice pop cold the longest. This is called a thermal insulator. Thermal insulators help to keep things hot or cold for longer.
• We found out that the bubble wrap was the best material to keep the ice pop cold the longest because the air helps to trap the cold inside and keep the heat out.
• This week we will be continuing to learn about thermal insulators by investigating which is the best material to keep things hot the longest.
• Today we are going to think about how we might stop a hot drink from cooling down too quickly

ADULT SUPERVISION NEEDED

• Some materials act as thermal insulators and can help to keep something hot or cold for longer.
• Have a look in your kitchen to see what materials you have that could be wrapped around a cup of hot drink e.g. tea, juice, water etc. You could try a paper towel, cardboard, kitchen foil, cling film, a plastic bag, a tissue, bubble wrap or fabric. Try a material of your own choice that you think will make a good insulator.

• SAFETY WARNING! Ask a grown up to help you with this investigation.
• DO NOT use hot liquids by yourself!

• Fair test – How can you make the test fair? What variables will you change/keep the same?
• To keep the test fair you need to use the same amount of liquid in the same size cup and use the same size pieces of material. The variable you will change will be the type of material you use.
• Use a thermometer to measure the temperature of the liquid.
• Choose 3 or 4 of the materials to test and wrap a piece of the material around each cup of hot liquid. Leave them for 30 minutes to see what happens.
• After the 30 minutes, carefully unwrap the material from around one of the cups and check the temperature of the liquid. Write down the name of the material that the cup was wrapped in and record the temperature next to it.
• Repeat this process for the other cups.
• What was the material used to wrap the cup that produced the highest temperature?
• This is the material that helped to keep the cup of liquid the hottest for longest so it is the best thermal insulator.
• Write up your investigation as a poster using diagrams/photographs to explain what you did and the results you found.
• Explain why this material made the best thermal insulator.
• Send your work to year4homework@sandylands.lancs.sch.uk

Children use a timeline to understand the chronological order of events in British history building on Year 3 Stone Age to Iron Age to modern day- place the Iron Age and Roman Britain on this timeline correctly.
What did the Celts believe in?

Children read a factfile to learn about who a druid what and why they were important to the Celts.

Definition

Sacrifice is a loss or something you give up, usually for the sake of a better cause.
A sacrifice could also be the offering or killing of an animal as a religious sacrifice.
“the goat was sacrificed at the shrine.”

If we sacrifice something it means we give something up, usually in order to make something better.
During the pandemic we have all had to sacrifice certain things that we usually take for granted, such as seeing and hugging our family, going on holiday, visiting/playing with friends. We have had to make these sacrifices in order to contain the virus and stop it from spreading.
Think about some of the things you have had to sacrifice recently and discuss how it has made you feel.

Think about all the things that are special to you, e.g. your toys, computer games, family, etc.
Imagine you are a contestant on ‘I’m a celebrity get me out of here!’
• You are only allowed to take one special thing with you…everything else you have to give up and leave behind.
• What would you take with you?
• Why have you chosen that item?

Make a list of all the things that are special to you. It could be a favourite food, clothing, toys, games, etc.
Draw a picture of any of your things that you would be willing to sacrifice (give up) and explain why.
Draw a picture of any of your things you would not be willing to sacrifice and explain why.
