This week we are going to carry on thinking about materials but when we find different things we are going to think what they feel like. 

We are going to have a look around our homes for things made from wood, plastic, metal, glass and paper again but each day we are going to think what they feel like. Are they rough or smooth?  Hard or soft? Bendy or hard? Hot or cold to touch?

You can listen to the songs again each day to help you think about the things you are going to find. 

Open the word document for your activity instructions and symbols to help you.

Have fun!
