Reception learn about Materials

Elmhurst School for Boys

15th January 2016 | Early Years

The children in Reception are learning about ‘Materials’ in their topic lessons. Over the next few weeks they will explore the different types of materials in the environment and make different things from those materials. This week the boys looked at ‘wool’ and where it comes from. They watched a short BBC clip and found out that wool actually comes from a SHEEP!!

They then made their own fluffy sheep.

In the boys Art lesson this week they enjoyed watching the short Disney clip of ‘The Three Little Pigs.’ Whilst they guzzled with laughter and excitement watching this, they were able to identify the three materials that the pigs build their houses out off. In small groups they then made the houses out of the materials which will be put up on display soon.
