Making a home for the Big Bad Wolf
We linked Science Week into our theme by exploring materials. We have been learning about the different types of materials and have explored our classroom talking about what things are made out of. We have been comparing the materials and discussing why things are made using a particular material rather than others.
We thought about what material would make a good home for the big bad wolf and tested our ideas by creating homes for the wolf using these materials. We talked about the importance of having a waterproof home and tested this by throwing water at the home. This was great fun!
We were amazed observing what happens when you mix water with skittles. We placed the skittles in a circle at the edge of the plate then added warm water. We were so excited to see the sugar dissolve and make the colours run into the middle.
