Science - Everyday Materials

This term we have been investigating the properties of different materials. After we carried out two experiments to test our theories and ideas to find out if we were right or wrong when posed with a problem.

1. Which materials are waterproof?

Which materials could we use to repair a hole in the umberella?

2. Which materials are opaque and transparent?

Why is glass used in a car window?

Which materials are Waterproof?

Which materials are Opaque / Transparent?

DT - Design Technology


Our DT work has common links to both our Science and Geography work.

We have been exploring Homes and Houses, first by looking at our own homes and how they are designed with key features for a purpose, then later we created a model using different materials.
