Year 1 Waterproof or Absorbent?

Date: 14th Nov 2023 @ 7:50am

Today we used what have learnt about materials, their properties and our new vocabulary to solve Ted’s emergency. We had to test the best material to make Ted an umbrella so he could stay nice and dry! We read our brief and collected the equipment needed for our test. We discussed how we were going to make it a fair test, by using the same amount of water and the same amount of time. We then worked in small groups to complete our experiment. In these groups we made our predictions, before following our method. Finally we all came back together to discuss what happened during the test? Did we correctly guess what would happen? What have we found out from doing the experiment and if we were going to do the equipment again what would you do differently?
