Materials and their properties

This half term the children are learning about materials and their properties. They have been introduced to some new scientific vocabulary including; absorbent, opaque, translucent and transparent.  They are having fun exploring what the objects are made from and thinking about why, based on their properties.

They have had the opportunities to begin to look at how materials can be changed.  It was fun to carry out an experiment to see how milk and sugar can be changed into ice cream.
