We’re going on a material hunt!

Year 2s have been learning all about materials. Last week we looked around the classroom for different materials and discussed their uses. This week we went exploring outside!

The children worked in groups and hunted around the school grounds looking for lots of different materials. They found lots of different things made by the same material. They investigated benches, picnic tables, football goals and even the Redwood building!

The children worked together to record their findings as well as identify the material and its use.

They had great fun exploring and explaining why certain materials were better than others!
