Investigating absorbent materials

Class 1 have been exploring what happens when paper flowers are placed on water.

Week 1 - Mrs Rodgers gave us each a paper flower and we folded up the petals and carefully placed them onto the surface of the water. We observed what happened - the petals started to open up! We talked about why - the paper absorbs the water causing the petals to open out.

We then had a go at designing our own paper flowers to see what would happen if the petals and flowers were different shapes and sizes. 

Week 2

We investigated paper flowers made out of different kinds of paper: newspaper, tissue paper and card.

Year 2

Year 3

Today, (28th June 2022) was Science Day in school.

We recieved a letter from NASA where they asked us to help them in developing a rocket to travel even further into space.


We got to work exploring different rocketsπŸš€ and designed adaptations to help the rocket travel further. The children then made and tested their designs.


We certainly have some budding astronauts in class 3 πŸ‘©‍πŸš€πŸ‘¨‍πŸš€!
