  • Can Timmy and Lucy find objects made of these materials:

wood, plastic, glass, metal, fabric, leather, paper, card

  • Can Timmy and Lucy now find materials which show these properties:

hard, soft, shiny, dull, smooth, bumpy, bendy

  • See if they can remember what waterproof means. Discuss why things would need to be waterproof. I thought they could do a little experiment on waterproofness. Which material would make the best tent for a small toy?  Put a little figure in a jam jar, cover with a material from the above list, pour some water on and find material is the most waterproof. Repeat with other materials.


Yr1 and 2

  • Find things that match these properties:

Hard, soft, smooth, bumpy, shiny, dull, rigid, flexible, bendy, elastic, absorbent, non-absorbent, transparent, non-transparent, waterproof, not waterproof

  • Yr1 – do this little test, not qs 5,6. You do not need to print the test out, just tell your parent the answers.
  • Yr2 – do this little test.

You do not need to print the test out, just tell your parent the answers.


Yr1/2 Tw- Help the Vet absorbency ppt.  Please can you do the experiment with your child. Feel free to adapt if you don’t have all the materials. Year 1 does not need to consider making it a fair test.



Today have a good look around your garden or the village if you go out for a walk. What do you notice has started to grow? Can you see plants peeking out of the ground or buds on flowers and trees? Are there any baby animals about? In two weeks time after the holidays I would like you to go out again and notice what has changed.
