F2 We are Scientists! Ice investigators

The children of F2 have been doing some fantastic investigating about ice.  First we observed melting ice in our classroom: what it looked like, felt like, talking about how it was changing and what happened when we touched it with our hands.  Then we received a letter from Stick Man: his three stick children were stuck in the ice!  We planned our own experiment, thinking about what we know about how ice melts and planned three different places to try to melt the ice quickly.  We then made predictions as to where the ice would melt fastest, giving reasons.  We have also extended our learning by experimenting with freezing some other things such as coffee and yoghurt, predicting whether or not they would freeze.
