Y6 have begun a Science topic this half term and begun by learning about classification keys. We began by very simply sorting the sweets in any way we chose.
We then used the Liquorice Allsorts to discuss what yes and no questions you could use to distinguish between two of the sweets. Then we used this to sort six different Allsorts into a classification key.
We finished off by starting a classification key to sort the children in the class. We very quickly realised it would take a very big classification key to end up with 30 individual children.
