Our Learning Challenge this term is Science based and focuses on the question ‘What is our school made of?’ We will be identifying and comparing the suitability of a variety of everyday materials. This Learning Challenge will begin by looking at materials within the classroom environment. We will then explore the outside of the school building to identify, name and discuss the suitability of the materials used to build the school. The children will be given the opportunity to experiment with a range of materials in order to change their shape by bending, stretching, squashing and twisting. We will end with each group giving a presentation to the rest of the class on their chosen material.
