SCIENCE

Children in Miss Old's class set out to design and make a boat that will float using a range of materials e.g. card, corrugated card, tissue paper, straws, plastic cups, masking tape, glue and scissors.  The worked together, helping each other to stick and tape the materials together and to copy their design.

After making the boat, the children talked about how they would make it float and investigated what happened to the materials used if they were put in water.

The boats needed to be waterproof in order to float so they decided to that plastic tape, plastic sheet or foil would do this. The children wrapped one of these around the bottom of the boat, making sure there were no holes or gaps for the water to get in.
