Our science topic this half term is Everyday Materials, and throughout the last few weeks we have been exploring the different types of materials we use in our everyday lives. We’ve especially been describing the properties of materials, such as how they feel. Last week, we investigated the properties of different types of paper and discovered that tissues really aren’t useful for painting on!
