Primary School

Autumn 2


Children are taught to: 


  • Identify and compare the suitability of a variety of everyday materials, including wood, metal, plastic, glass, brick, water, rock, paper and cardboard for particular uses.
  • Find out how the shapes of solid objects made from some materials can be changed by squashing, bending, twisting and stretching (applying a force).
  • Some materials can be found naturally; others have to be made.


Children work scientifically by: 


Comparing the uses of everyday materials in and around the school with materials found in other places (at home, the journey to school, on visits, and in stories, rhymes and songs)

Observing closely
Identifying and classifying the uses of different materials

Recording their observations.
Thinking about unusual and creative uses for everyday materials.
