Year 5 have compared and grouped together everyday materials based on evidence from comparative and fair tests. They understand that some materials will dissolve in liquid to form a solution. Pupils have described how to recover a substance from a solution. They have used their knowledge of solids, liquids and gases to decide how mixtures might be separated, through filtering, sieving and evaporating.
