IPC (International Primary Curriculum)

Our topic is Bake it! 

It is about the properties of materials and changes of state. There are two lessons and adult supervision will be needed at certain points. The following materials will be required: freezer bag, water, tape, yeast and sugar. If these materials are not available, there are other tasks children can do instead. 

This week you may find the following BBC Bitesize videos helpful for your learning:

BBC - Solids, liquids and gases.
