Thursday 28th January

Good morning children and welcome to another day of fun learning.

NB. Parents: Before you start this lesson you will need to collect a set of small objects from around the home (cotton wool, scouring pad, tinfoil, lego, wooden spoon etc) and place in a bag to make a ‘feely bag’


Can you remember what materials the pigs used to build their houses? Which material do you think was best to build a house?

Using the right type of material is really important.

Would you make a teapot out of chocolate?

No. 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.

Today we are going to learn about types of materials. Watch this clip to find out more…


You are going to play a little game with an adult at home.

Put your hand into the feely bag and describe what the object ‘feels’ like. How many lovely words can you use? Can you guess the object? Take turns with Mummy or Daddy.

Print off the materials sorting poster...

Can you cut out and stick the objects into the right boxes – are they soft or hard?

If you don’t have a printer, perhaps you could design your own poster about soft and hard objects.
