We're due to do 'materials' next half term & I'm a bit stuck for story ideas (although activity ideas would also be greatly appreciated). So far all I've got is We're Going on a Bear Hunt, with a view to having examples of most/all of the things they go through for children to explore.

Generally I'm thinking: ice, cooking (changing materials), Making houses from different materials (DT - 3 Little Pigs link), exploring clay (and other malleables) and investigating fabrics/clothes.

 

Come on all you clever people - help me out with this one.

 

(Although the reality is that being the last half of the summer term, we won't get half the things done due to trips, sports day, special assemblies etc.)

What about recycling? We are going to make a 'rubbush monster' from recycable materials and read the story 'dinosaurs and all that rubbish'.

 

With the 'three little pigs' I have the hand puppets and brought in a brick, some twigs and some straw, the children acted out the story and had to try and blow the materials down.

I'm just making this flag up again, as loads of busy people have added new posts (mine has now disappeared off the raydar :o )and may not have had the opportunity to share their thoughts on this matter. Thanks in advance! (and to those who have already helped)
