Learning Objectives
What do I intend the pupils to learn? (Knowledge, understanding, values, attitudes and skills) To find out what changes happen when mixing solids and liquids Working towards... Children will see that some solids dissolve when mixed with water, some do not and some change to become something new. They may not observe all three and will need support in using correct scientific language. (Level ?) With help They will need support to go through the correct stages, they may not

Differentiated Learning Outcomes


Achieving... Children will see that some solids dissolve when mixed with water, some do not and some change to become something new. They can (mostly) use the correct scientific language. (Level 3b) With little or no help They will plan their experiment using correct terminology, they will Beyond...

LI To plan, conduct and record an experiment using the steps of a scientific enquiry. To find out what changes happen when mixing solids and liquids Remember to Use the planning template Record what you think will happen Decide what to change / keep the same Explain what you did Record your results Check for allergies

ABILITY GROUPS ON ATTACHED SHEET Mixed ability groups To support those children who leave class for additional support . During the afternoon a number of children will have support intervention groups today it will be year 5 phonics. Mrs Laloo said the children will be taken ou at the beginning of the lesson. When they return I will give them a sepapre quick input

New topic Reversible and irreversible changes What do you know about solids and liquids? If I mix a solid and liquid what happens? Can this be changed back (reversed)? Explain activity Start today with step one, looking at how what happens when we mix solids and liquids Q & A - Definition of terms Solid Liquid Gas Dissolve Solution Reversible Irreversible Net week we will see if the process can be reversed Scenario You are a trader from the Middle Ages (link to Paragon topic) and have attacked by pirates. You have been shipwrecked on your way to sell your goods. Your barrels, containing a number of solids have become wet. You need to find out what has happened as in some barrels the solids seem to have disappeared and there is just liquid. There is a little bit of each dry substance left so

you are going to find out what happens when water is added. You can see if indeed some of the solids have disappeared. Depending on our results we will decide what we should do next. How are we going to do this investigation? Scientific enquiry How can we plan an investigation? Think Pair Share On WB children feedback ideas Explain activity Hand out recording sheets Group name and date You will use 6 different substances, each table will use 1 when finished pass to the next table. In your groups, plan your experiments Decide on your method Decide on equipment, quantities etc Assign roles You have 5 minutes http://www.online-stopwatch.com/fullscreen-stopwatch/ Draw class back together Children listeneing again Gather equipment and first substance and start your experiment Make sure you document what you are doing FLIP CHART As we make observations note down on you planning sheets also add to a post it , add your name & team name and put on to our concept map drawn on Flip Chart Each table to start with a substance, conduct the experiment, document it and collect the next substance Mixed ablity groups To help those who go out for support to explain what has been done. Also to support those with lower literacy levels Each group will use a flip camera to video the experiment. They will record their activity and results which will be used as evidence for assessment. Observation will provide assessment information

Q&A Think Pair Share Feedback 70min Activity Q & A, Feedback ideas

Collaborative group work

Evidence of understanding, application, and synthesis will be demonstrated through engagement in the task and observed through assessment of written work (the scientific enquiry planning sheet). This will show understanding / progress and highlight areas of misunderstanding and areas for improvement. Talk will also be used to assess learning and progress, with both group and 1 to 1 questioning

Children may need support to use the flip cameras, this will be done as a need to know basis

Flip Cameras will be used to record the experiments. Everyone will be able to use the camera. Only video what is happening. ANY MISUSE will result in the camera being removed. You have 10 minutes (max) per substance. You will be stopped after each one, to ensure you have recorded the information. http://www.online-stopwatch.com/fullscreen-stopwatch/ Differentiation: Level 1 (Ms Noble) Children may be unable to articulate or write their findings, observation and Q & A will be used as will video. The children should have equal opportunity to participate. They should be encouraged to make but may have difficulty in thinking things through and making connections. They will need maximum support. CR will have Ms Noble as his INA. Level 2 Children will be more able however, will require guidance through the task and some children will find it difficult to stay focussed. By assigning jobs that suit their skills such as videoing for some of the time should help their engagement with the task. They will make simple observations and some hypotheses, although these may not be accurate . They may come up with conclusions. 3c ((Wendy Phillips) Children will be more independent, they will make more detailed observations and hypotheses, drawing on existing knowledge they may need some/minimum support but

Although in mixed ability groups there will need to be differentiation within the group

will engage well with the task. They will be able to draw conclusions. 3b (IND & FB) Children will be mostly independent, they will make more detailed observations and hypotheses, drawing on existing knowledge, they will engage well with the task. They will be able to draw conclusions. 3a 4a (IND & FB) Children are indepenedent learners and will lead and be encouraged to support the others. Need to be careful that they do not take over and do everything themselves. They will hypothesise, make detailed observations and record their results. They will come up with valid conclusions . 5 mins Clearing up Children to put unused equipmwnt away and label their containers Plenary: Stick LI in books and mark in green or pink and for the I can .... statement write a comment about the topic and activities, and whether you enjoyed it, found it interesting hard easy or just right

Use tidy up music to countdown to being ready to sit and listen Invite children to read their reports Using lolly sticks select a child from each group to feed back what they found out How can we be sure our results are accurate, what could we do? (I hope we can start to hypothesise about being able to reverse the process to get the original substances back - Are the changes reversible or irreversible?) Use tidy up music to countdown to being ready to leave Chairs away / stand behind chairs Teacher directing questions to individuals Lolly sticks to pick children
