Material World.

 
 
The Big idea!
Hundreds of different materials are used to make everyday objects.
Some materials occur naturally, e.g. wood from trees while others are man-made in factories, e.g. plastic. Some materials are magnetic; some allow heat and electricity to pass through them. But with so many different materials to choose from, how do we decide which to use?
 
 

In Science, we’ll be finding out:

  • How and why different materials are used.
  • How to test the properties of a material.
  • About the uses for glass and plastic.
  • About the materials that are attracted to magnets.
  • Which materials allow electricity to pass through them.
  • Which materials allow heat to pass through them.
  • About solids, liquids and gases and the water cycle.
  • How natural and man-made materials are different.

In Technology, we’ll be finding out:

  • About moving mechanisms including gears, levers and linkages.
  • How to design and make a product for a bicycle.
