Understanding materials KS1

My 4yo and I have been looking at this book ‘Everyday Materials’ by Ruth Owen, and have started working through it. Today we looked at ‘materials’ – metal, wood, glass, plastic, wool and rock. We then went on a treasure hunt in the house/garden for examples of each of these types of materials.

Hi! I’m Claire, stay-at-home-mum to two gorgeous boys and a lovely girl. My kids are energetic, spirited and full-of-life, and they certainly keep me on my toes. I love spending time with them and seeing them learn and experience new things – I hope that this blog will give you ideas to try out on the children in your life!
