Building on the exploration of what things are made of from Year 1 - we are developing our understanding of materials and how they are chosen for specific purposes based on their properties.
We will be thinking about adjectives we can use to describe a material and how that can help us to decide what it would be good for.
Ultimately we aim to help Humpty Dumpty to not smash if he falls off the wall - which materials will best protect him and why?
You can learn more at home with your child using the ideas included on this parent newsletter all about Materials.
It's full of fun activities you can try together.
