On Wednesday 26th September, we went to watch the Gruffalo's Child at the Sheffield Lycuem Theatre . It was a fantastic production and the children embraced the experience.
Our Science topic this term is ' Materials'. We have been on a material hunt around our classroom. We found objects and things that were made out of a variety of materials. Paper, Glass, Metal, Plastic and Fabric were the most popular materials.
We then decided to sort the materials . We used day to day familiar objects and discussed ' why' the objects and things were made with a particular material. It was a great hands on approach!
