Year 2 have been Super Scientists recently, learning about a whole range of materials as part of their topic and investigating:
· how materials can be categorised
· how materials can change shape and form
· how easily they rip
· their absorbency
· if they can be stretched, twisted, squashed or bent
· what happens when you add heat or cold
Whilst doing this, we have made and eaten toast and popcorn, got gooey with cornflour slime and had fun freezing different materials. We also had a visit from Mr Watt from the prep school who helped us investigate if materials were natural or man-made.
They found that through observation, testing, discussing, recording and reflecting we have all become super experts in Marvellous Materials!
