Does it float or does it sink?
Year 1 have been investigators this week! As a part of our 'Land Ahoy!' topic, we have been thinking about how boats float? Year 1 decided to chose objects from around our classroom, predict whether they would float or sink, and then they tested their predictions!
Some of the items were sneaky and caught them out! We are now going to think about what materials will be best to build a boat that can float!
Year 1 absolutely loved having some parent readers join us for a reading session today! Thank you to all the mums, dads and grandparents that came! It was lovely seeing the children engage with different adults in our classroom! We will be doing the same thing next week, on Thursday at 3.05pm. See you there!
