Y5 Identifying Material Properties

Pupils learn that in order to do their jobs correctly some objects need to be bendy, twistable and stretchy, while others need to remain firm and rigid. Pupils Investigate a range of objects to see if they bend and change or remain firm and rigid. They explain why these properties are important to the jobs each object has been designed to do.

Learning Objectives:

  • PoS - give reasons, based on evidence from comparative and fair tests, for the particular uses of everyday materials, including metals, woods and plastics
  • NaG - pupils should build a more systematic understanding of materials
  • WS - pupils should carry out tests to answer questions
