Year 2 Science

The children in Year 2 had great fun investigating the suitability of materials.  They were given a challenge of making an umbrella using paper, a high-heeled shoe using card and making a fork and knife using foil. All the children applied the different forces to make the objects. At the end of the lesson the children were able to explain whether or not the materials were appropriate for the object made and why.
