Welcome toSt Nicholas Church of England Primary Academy




Today's lesson is all about finding out what objects are made from and which materials suit what the object will be used for.  For example:


Would you make a teapot out of chocolate?

A chocolate teapot would melt when you poured hot water into it. It would be better to make it from a material that doesn’t melt easily.


Our starter activity below will help you to think about what materials are used and why.

Today we are going to carry out a simple test to see which material would be best for an umbrella.  You can use materials from around your home to test using the investigation in the link below.
