Key Stage 2 (Years 3 to 6)
In this workshop pupils discover how the use of natural resources and the production of waste are damaging our environment, and the importance of the ‘four Rs’. They investigate different ways of reducing, re-using, repairing and recycling and find out what happens to their waste once it has been collected. They then go into the park to take a look at nature’s recyclers and to see the life-death-life cycle in action.
Properties and changes of materials - Compare and group together everyday materials on the basis of their properties, including their hardness, solubility, transparency, conductivity (electrical and thermal), and response to magnets.
Properties and changes of materials - Explain that some changes result in the information of new materials, and that this kind of change is not usually reversible, including changes associated with burning and the action of acid on bicarbonate of soda
