This term we have been learning about materials. The children have had opportunities to sort materials into different properties and have distinguished between objects and materials. We then went on on to think about the properties of materials and why we use certain materials to make objects. The children designed their own houses thinking carefully about the different materials they will use for the different parts.
In RE, we have thought about why places are special. We thought about objects and places that are special to us. We really enjoyed our trip to St Stephen’s Church to learn about why churches are special to Christians. We loved the stained glass windows and were interested in the stories they were telling. The children thought really carefully about objects that remind them of special times and places and we created our own stained glass window to represent Forest Class.
