LO: To plan different type of enquiry. ( YELLOW )


Reversible changes – evaporating, filtering, sieving, melting, dissolving

Briefly review their learning from the previous week.  Encourage the use of scientific language linked to dissolving.  Introduce the new learning focus for this session. 


Identify that you have provided the children with some water to drink (this should be hidden from them for maximum effect!)  How do we get our water? How do we know it is clean?  Reveal the ‘drinks’ which will be cups filled with water, sand, stones, salt, soil and paper clips.  Would you drink this water? If not, why? At this point the children should explain in greater detail than ‘it’s dirty’.  Why is dirty water not good for drinking? What is in the water?  Are there things we can’t see in the water? How do you know? (This draws on the previous lesson’s learning identifying that some materials dissolve.)  How might we separate all of the different materials to make it clean?  What apparatus might we need to use?  Discuss this briefly to ensure that the children all recognise the different equipment available.


Support and Challenge:

Step 1: Children draw and label a diagram of the contents of their cup. 


Step 2: They should answer the questions making predictions about the outcome of each step.


Step 3: They should carry out the investigation.  It should be encouraged that they choose their own order for the particles to see which will work.  Their investigation should be recorded with simple labelled diagrams.


Step 4: Write a clear conclusion that answers all of the key questions.


Success criteria:

To know what safe water is

Understand the correct terminology

To investigate several pieces of equipment to clean their water


clear plastic cups, soil, stones, salt, sand, paper clips, magnets, sieves (various sized holes), filter paper, water, bowls
