Science in the Forest- Year 1

This term in Science our topic is Materials. In the forest Year 1 were sorting materials according to their physical properties thinking about whether materials were waterproof or not and transparent or opaque. They then had to sort materials into a Venn diagram to compare the materials. There was lots of fantastic questioning and discussion. 
The children then had a challenge to make a shelter for one of the aliens that are on the loose around Ford, thinking about what materials they would use to make sure the alien would be safe and dry.
