We used a variety of ways to separate materials. We used evaporation, sieving, magnetism and filtering.
Autumn 1 2018
Our first topic this year is......
Can we be an Egyptian Tomb Raider?
Science - Forces
The Egyptians had to move very heavy blocks to build the pyramids so we investigated which surface would create the least friction to make it easier to move them.
We found out that the smoother the surface the less friction there was.
