Learning chemistry and researching the properties of different materials is really helping the 3 Little Pigs who are going on holiday and need a strong waterproof tent. Year 1 have been busy exploring and testing many materials to discover the most suitable one for camping with.
Learning to test and record their results in scientific table helped keep us organised and remind us of the best materials to use. It was fun getting wet as we investigated the most suitable one!
We discovered much more on further research of materials and their properties.
We are looking forward to learning more about the traditional story of The Magic Porage pot and designing a suitable pot made with the right materials. We are planning to crop a plot of oats this year and learning more about the life cycle of oats and the tasty nutritious food that can be made from this crop.
Linking With Others Overseas…
We are very excited at the opportunity to learn traditional tales from other countries through inking with children and their teachers to share our traditional tales and experiments with farming crops linked to these stories is something we are very excited to do. Children from Ukraine are some of the first to get onboard with this scientific traditional tales quest…
Please reply to our blog below if promoting learning traditional tales and experiencing gardening and farming through stories outside the classroom is something you are keen to work on with us.
