This term, we will be environmental researchers; we will explore how disasters occur and research weather patterns and climate zones to develop our understanding of why different areas of the world are prone to different natural disasters. We will then continue our explorations by looking at shifts in climate change and the impact that global warming is having on our planet.
We will explore how we can make a difference to our world. We are going to educate others by designing our own webpages and spread the word about plastic pollution as part of our eco school status.
To start our learning journey, we will be using Google Earth to explore our planet: its different biomes, climate and diversity. There are so many amazing things on Earth that we can celebrate and enjoy, unfortunately, it is not all sunshine and rainbows!
Some materials dissolve in water - this means they break apart into tiny pieces, spread out in the water and can no longer be seen. This mixture is called a solution.
Filtering - used when there is a mixture of liquid and an insoluble solid. For example: water and sand.
Soluble (will dissolve)
Insoluble (will not dissolve)
Reversible reaction –this is a change that can be undone.
Irreversible - this is a change that cannot be undone.
Evaporation - used when there is a mixture of liquid and a soluble solid. For example: water and salt.
