Three Little Pigs

Dosbarth Miss Burgoyne have used their knowledge and understanding of materials and their properties gained from their previous Science and Technology lessons, to work in small groups to find ‘good’ and ‘bad’ materials for building a house with (a real house or a strong toy house). The learners talked about the reasons for their choices and shared these with their peers.

We read the story of the ‘Three Little Pigs’ and tested the three materials the pigs used to find out whether they were ‘good’ or ‘bad’ choices to build a house with and why. To finish off, the learners then sorted some more materials, such as concrete, slate and wool, working within groups.
