Year 2 have had a very fun week this week. In Literacy, we have been learning all about formal and informal language and have used our knowledge to write different types of letters. In Science this week, we have been investigating waterproof materials and which would be best for Miss Walker’s umbrella. The children firstly predicted which materials out of tissue paper, kitchen roll, cling film, tin foil and plastic would be waterproof and then put them all to the test. We made the investigation fair by dropping the same amount of water onto each material and waiting patiently to see if the water soaked through or not. The children learnt that tin foil, cling film and plastic are all waterproof materials but plastic was the best for Miss Walker’s umbrella due to its strength. Well done, Year 2.
