Materials and their properties

This term, Year 5 have started their new science topic ‘Materials and their properties’.

So far, we have enjoyed touching a range of materials that were in a ‘feely-bag’ so that we could not see them. We had to try to explain what these materials were to the other people in our group. We later learned that we had been describing their properties.

 

Later, we began to test materials for: Hardness, permeability, transparency, flexibility and magnetism. You can see some pictures of us in action below:
