Welcome to Y2/3!
Our new Science topic is 'Characteristics of Materials'. On Tuesday 26th November we tested different surfaces for our toy cars and then wrote our findings onto our investigation sheet.
We found that wood and plastic were the best materials because they are smooth and concrete was the worst because it is bumpy and has lots of little stones.
We do not suggest making roads out of plastic though!
Our new maths topic this term is 'Shape'. We started by going on a 'Shape Hunt' around our school. We worked in teams and began by exploring our playground and classroom.
Whilst in the playground we had the opportunity to explore our new building and found many different shapes and sizes.
When we returned to our classroom we spent some time looking at the different areas and discovered the many shapes around us!
Once we had found five interesting shapes, we worked together to record our findings on the 'Shape Sheet'.
