To investigate floatation, the children designed and built their own boats before testing them. We had great fun trying out different materials and methods. In a previous lesson, we created gyrocopters and then tested their flight (and falling) efficiency by dropping them from a height.
On International day, we learned about famous buildings around the world. Year 2 were then challenged to recreate their favourite using only tape, lollypop sticks and straws. The children worked collaboratively, exploring 2D and 3D shape. We had great fun!
