Year 4: Friday fun!

Today we had lots of fun doing a science investigation! At the end of our unit we will be designing a house for a person in India. Yesterday pupils discussed which material would be the best for the roof for their house, choosing from plastic, metal, slate, glass and fabric. Today they tested out their predictions by placing each of these materials over a plastic jar, containing a lego man. Pupils then took it in turns to pour 200ml of water into the jar and measured how much water went through the material and into the jar.
I won’t spoil it by commenting on the results! Regardless, following the investigation all pupils had a good idea of the perfect material for their roof.
Da iawn Year 4 🙂
