Stretching, bending, twisting and squashing.

During science, we have been exploring materials and their properties. The 4 main properties we have been learning about are bending, squashing, twisting and stretching. We have completed a variety of experiments such as changing the shapes of different materials, and our most recent experiment, measuring the length that different socks can be stretched. To compare the length of the socks, we began by measuring the sock before it was stretched, we then measured the length of the sock once it had been stretched in order to compare how far each different sock could stretch.

We then used our bending, twisting, stretching and squashing knowledge in our PE lesson. Year 2 used their bodies to make different shapes using a variety of skills and techniques. The children then worked with a partner to see how many different shapes they could make working together.
