During our science week we have been trying out different experiments. First we learned about floating and sinking.
On Tuesday we discovered which materials were magnetic and which were not.
Today we have boiled an egg some of us wrapped it in straw, some in bubble wrap and some in cotton wool.
Then we put it in a bag and dropped it from a height. We wanted to find out which material protected the egg the most.
8/10 that was wrapped in straw did not break. 1/10 wrapped in bubble wrap did not break and 1/10 that was wrapped in cotton wool did not break.
We discovered the straw was the most protective material.
We cannot wait to find out what we are doing Thursday and Friday !
The children had lots of fun being scientists for part of the day.
Well done everyone !
