We Struck Gold!

This afternoon we had a special treat in our Geography and Science learning.  The Alchemists had been really impressed with our investigating over the last few weeks, so gave us a clue to finding the missing Gold.

We used the co-ordinates they gave us to follow a route on the map and ended up in Summerwyn Kingdom at The Tors, where we found a sample of soil from each Tor.

Using periodic tables, we spotted that the Tors were named after element symbols and the symbol for Gold is Au, so we decided to investigate the soil sample from Au Tor.

Using our knowledge of separation techniques to separate solubles from insolubles, we sieved, washed and drained the sample and guess what….found Gold!

Have a look at our learning journey below and how proud we are of finding our rewards, well done Year 5!
