Y5 Changing Materials by Burning

Pupils learn about materials and burning and how burning creates new materials, some of which can be toxic and extremely dangerous to animals and humans.

Learning Objectives:

  • PoS - explain that some changes result in the formation of new materials, and that this kind of change is not usually reversible, including changes associated with burning
  • NaG - pupils should explore changes that are difficult to reverse, such as burning
  • WS - pupils could observe and compare the changes that take place, for example when burning different materials
