Yesterday Year 1 received a special letter from The Queen. She has a problem with the big hats that her guards wear – they keep getting wet in the rain. She asked the children to test different materials to see which would be best to keep her guards dry.
After much discussion about different materials – and which might be flexible and waterproof – this afternoon we tested them! What fun Mrs Simonson and Mrs Exley had – a big watering can and lots of laughing children!
Angelico “ I thought it was exciting but I got wet” Khloe “ I know that towels don’t work to keep your head dry – just use them to dry yourself” Ayeza “ I tested cardboard – and I got a bit wet” Olivia “ I loved it because it was fun and I learned about which material worked for the guard when he’s in the rain” Hareem “ I found out that plastic will work but towels won’t”
