This term in Science, Year 5 have been learning about ‘Everyday Materials’ and their properties. For their final week investigation we would like children to collect all sorts of materials from home!
Challenge: Working as a team, children will design and create a model of a home that is able to withstand the effects of flooding. To do this they need lots of materials to choose from!
What different materials do you think you need to ensure you have a secure house, that you could bring into school? If you can, it would be gratefully appreciated if you start collecting different materials from home and bring them to school. Think about all the materials and packaging you use at home and throw away! It can be anything from cardboard, to aluminium, fabrics etc. Lets start collecting year 5!
