‘Learn and Believe, Aspire and Achieve’


The children worked collaboratively to research the uses and properties of different materials. They then went and taught another group all about their material. Using their information they created so fantastic posters about materials!
Children had to pick the best material to make a waterproof coat for the old man from 'The Tin Forest'. They made predictions about which material they thought would be waterproof then tested different materials. We tested, rubber, plastic, fabric, tin foil, paper towel and paper. Which ones do you think are waterproof?
