Year 5 - Separating Mixtures



As part of Year 5’s science learning, the children explored the different methods to separate a mixture.  They learnt the difference between a mixture and a solution and then explored 4 different ways to retrieve each item from that mixture.  


They had to separate: paper clips, rocks, oats, sand, salt and water.


They explored sieving, filtering, using magnets and evaporation in groups to create the cleanest water again.
