Science this term is all about materials. As our topic is all about traditional tales, we were thinking about different materials and what the 3 little pigs used to build their house. First the children needed to distinguish between an object and the material from which it is made. They were identifying and naming a variety of everyday materials, including wood, plastic, glass and metal. We talked about the properties of these and then the children travelled around the classroom classifying and recording the objects they found.
