Suitability of materials

We tested different materials to discover which would be best to make a pair of wellies. We considered how to make it a fair test and identified that it needed to be waterproof and strong


Alive, dead, never been alive.

We placed a hula hoop on an area of the field and used magnifying glasses to help us find things that are alive, dead or never been alive. We thought carefully about grass and had a discussion about whether it is alive or never been alive. Some of us thought it was never alive because it doesn’t have a heart.


We created shoebox habitats. We used our previous learning from our school trip and lessons in school to help us think carefully about what animals need in their habitat to help them survive.
