Year 1 have been studying common materials around home and school. They are great at identifying the materials that many objects have been made from using their senses.
They are now beginning to describe common materials using new and exciting vocabulary. They know the properties of materials like wood, metal, fabric, plastic and glass. The children will now start to consider why some materials are chosen for a particular purpose in the coming sessions. They will think carefully about clothing that would be suitable for Barnaby Bear when he is visiting many different places in different weather conditions.
