Just found this little webpost in the archive, thought this look back to more normal times was still worth sharing!!

Year 4s were delighted that we were using chocolate in science this week! We have been looking at how different states of matter change due to freezing and melting. The children started off the lesson by predicting which type of chocolate would melt first, with many of them believing that white chocolate would be the first. We had to make sure that it was a fair test to ensure accurate results.

We used a thermometer to ensure that the temperature was the same for all types of chocolate and a stopwatch to time how long it took to melt.

We then wrote up our final results and conclusions.
