Week 7 – smashing experiments!

This week we began reading the Christmas Jolly-Postman.

One of the characters inside the story is Humpty Dumpty, who we had to send a card to because he was in hospital.. again. Miss Durham lead an exciting experiment that enabled the children to use what they’ve learnt about material properties this term to test which would be the best material to stop Humpty from getting hurt again. The children had to then test their materials and explain why it worked – or in most cases didn’t!
