During Science this week we thought about what already knew about materials.
We distinguished between an object and the material from which it is made
We identified and named a variety of everyday materials, including wood, plastic, glass, metal, water, and rock
The children were given a tray containing a mix of objects and samples of materials and allowed time to explore and discuss them. Then they wrote down anything they knew about materials and how they might describe them.
In small groups the children were then given two hoops and asked to think of different ways they could sort the objects/materials and explain how they had sorted them.
