This week we have been investigating materials. What better way to investigate the property of insulation than to make a baked Alaska (above)!
The children also tested materials for their ability to conduct electricity, for magnetism and waterproof properties. We did an experiment to investigate which materials were the most stretchy.
The children also investigated materials used for packing sandwiches and designed their own sandwich boxes:
First they made a net for the box which we imported into the computer and cut out with our Inspiration cutter.
We needed to find out which sandwiches are most popular so the children composed an on-line survey on Survey Monkey.
They then used Word to design some labels for the sandwich boxes.
They then made some sandwiches and packaged them up.
