Traditional Tales

User Rating:  / 1

We have been busy finding out about materials during our theme on Traditional Tales. The Gingerbreadman story and the The Three Little pigs were our favourite stories and have helped us find out about the different properties materials and what happens when they change. We did some floating and sinking with the Gingerbread man, built the Three Little Pigs house, explored what happens to biscuits when they fall in water, we used a cool hairdyer on some sticks, bricks and straw to explore which material is the strongest! That was fun. We loved exploring flour and water in our messy tray but the Thre Little Pigs role play was our favourite.
