Y5 Separating Soluble and Insoluble Materials

Pupils visit their science table where they see a selection of mixtures. Their task is to use their developing knowledge of separating mixtures and plan and then successfully separate the mixtures. When recording their plans pupils write them as a series of instructions.

Learning Objectives:

  • PoS - use knowledge of solids, liquids and gases to decide how mixtures might be separated, including through filtering, sieving and evaporating
  • NaG - pupils should explore reversible changes, including evaporating, filtering, sieving, melting and dissolving
  • WS - pupils should plan different types of scientific enquiries to answer questions, including recognising and controlling variables where necessary
