Topic: Properties and Changes of Materials (For the whole term)  

The objectives we will cover include:

Compare and group together everyday materials based on their properties.

Know that some materials will dissolve in liquid to form a solution and describe how to recover a substance from a solution.

Use knowledge of solids, liquids and gases to decide how mixtures might be separated, including filtering, sieving and evaporating.

Give reasons based on evidence from comparative and fair tests for the uses of everyday materials.

Demonstrate that dissolving, mixing and change of state are reversible changes.

Explain that some changes result in the formation of new materials and that this kind of change in not usually reversible, including changes associated with burning and the action of acid on bicarbonate of soda.
