Science day Materials

Monday is our science enrichment day. We will be focusing on materials and exploring lots of different textures through play. Children will have the opportunity to:

  • play with gloop and continue exploring what happens when colours mix
  • create their own collage with different materials
  • practice a variety of different patterns in our individual mark making trays
  • develop their fine motor skills by weaving with different materials

Throughout each activity children will be developing their skills of exploration, investigation, questioning and sorting as well as learning key vocabulary including, but not limited to hard, soft, bendy, flexible, squidgy, fluffy, strong, squishy, gloopy, twist, pinch, splat, shape and squeeze. Below are some activities allowing you to join in and extend this at home.
