This week we have been exploring materials. We started the week sorting different everyday objects by whether they were transparent, translucent or opaque. The children worked really hard on recording their findings.
Next we looked at different materials and investigated which one made the darkest shadow ready for our alien shadow puppet making next week. The children enjoyed using the projector light and torches. They quickly realised that some of our materials made different colours or patterns.
During a Literacy lesson we designed plasticene alien models and then wrote a list of their features. We are going to use our models as a design for our shadow puppets. The children have really enjoyed linking their learning!
