Super Science : Which materials are waterproof?31-01-2018 | 16:57:11 | Comments Off on Super Science : Which materials are waterproof?

Today Year 2 have been thinking about the features which a firefighter’s outfit should have. We decided that it should be flame and heat resistant and waterproof. We then investigated a number of materials to see which would be the most waterproof. We used cotton fabric, wax coat fabric, wax paper, foil and paper. We created a fair test to test our predictions. We dropped the same number of water drops onto each material and watched what happened. Some materials were more absorbent than others and some were waterproof. This photograph showed what happened. It was fascinating to watch how the water droplets formed one large drop on the surface of the waterproof materials.

R.E. : How do people pray?25-01-2018 | 16:13:29 | Comments Off on R.E. : How do people pray?

Following our work last week about why and how Christians pray, we have been finding out about the way in which Muslims pray, and why. We were fascinated to find out what the differences and similarities were. We found out that Muslims use a prayer mat for their prayer time and that they must face the direction of a place special to them, called Mecca, when they do so. We used the special compass on one of the mats to find out which direction Mecca was in.

Science : What is made from?18-01-2018 | 17:02:46 | Comments Off on Science : What is made from?

This term we are thinking about different types of materials and their uses. This week we have been finding out about the difference between natural and man-made materials. We handled different objects and sorted them into groups depending on whether they were natural or man-made.

We also went outside to see if we could tell what everyday objects around our school are made from.
