This half term we are learning about materials. Year 1 were asked to build their own boat, the two materials available were plastic or paper. We made predictions about which material would make the best boat and why, after that each group made their own boat out of plastic or paper. Finally we tested the boats and decided that although the paper boats did float plastic was the best material as paper boats weren’t waterproof and wouldn’t last very long in the water. Great investigating Year 1!
