What can a boat be made out of?

Autumn 2: Science and DT

A Big welcome to Jade Class.

Welcome back, we hope you enjoyed the half term.

Our Big question for the autumn term 2 is ‘What can a boat be made out of?’ We are going to be learning a lot about different materials, their properties and floating and sinking.

Our PE days are Tuesday and Thursday. So please come dressed in your PE kit and be prepared to stay in them all day.

For our topic learning we will be focusing on the following questions: 

  • What materials can you name?
  • What materials might be good for a boat and why?
  • Can you change a material? How?
  • Why is it important for a boat to be waterproof?
  • Can we make something waterproof? How?
  • Why does a boat float?
  • What else floats?
  • Why does something sink?
  • What can you name that sinks?
  • Can you make a boat that floats? How?

Autumn Term 1

I look forward to seeing you soon!
