Boat Building

With the fine weather we've made the most of the good conditions and have based lots of our science outside.
The juniors have all been looking at floating and sinking and then building simple rubber band powered boats from bottles and attaching dowling and a paddle so that they can wind them up and watch them go.  It was really great to watch the year one's work out that it mattered which way they wound their paddle!

Year One's having lots of fun!

7N and 7M have been working on a boat unit within their classroom and then they each spent a day in the science and technology room constructing their own sail boats.  Once they were all finished some serious racing was had on the school pool - I'm sure there are some future boat designers in the two classes!
