This quiz addresses the requirements of the National Curriculum KS1 Science for children aged 5 and 6 in years 1 and 2. Specifically this quiz is aimed at the section dealing with materials and how they change, for example when cooking.

The cooked cake doesn’t look like any of the ingredients. Let’s find out a bit more about how materials change.
