This term’s topic is ‘Uses of Everyday Materials’ will teach the children about the uses of everyday materials including wood, plastic, metal, glass, brick, paper and cardboard. Children will then compare the suitability of different everyday materials for different purposes. The children will investigate what would be the most suitable material that could be used to make Paddington Bear’s raincoat. They will then go on to explore how objects made of some everyday materials can change shape and how the recycling process is able to reuse some everyday materials numerous times. Finally the children will learn about new discoveries which have made over time with a specific focus on John McAdam. A range of learning activities including, discussions, debates, sequencing and a local walk will encourage children work scientifically to identify the uses of everyday materials in the local area.
