This half term we learnt about Materials.  Throughout the unit, we focused on:

  • distinguishing between an object and the material from which it is made

  • identifying and naming a variety of materials including wood, plastic, glass, metal, water and rock

  • describing the simple physical properties of a variety of everyday materials

  • identifying which materials have certain properties


We did this through practical activities and investigations where children had the opportunity to handle different objects and materials. We concluded our unit with an investigation into which material would be best to make a tent for Mr Bear when he went camping.
