Testing Our Grand Designs

Year 1 BlogComments Off on Testing Our Grand Designs

This week in 1LW we have been continuing with our grand designs. The children have made walls and chosen their materials carefully for a waterproof roof. We of course had to put their houses through some very strict building regulation tests! The children loved using the fan to test for strength and sturdiness but best of all was the waterproof test using Mr Cadge’s watering can to made a rain storm. Some of the houses were fantastically made and kept Pippa Pig dry!

During one of our speaking and listening sessions we read in different places around school. We found this a great way to encourage children to choose a spot that they could read their book independently in for 5 minutes. The teachers even joined in too!

We became scientists this week, testing which items floated and look at what materials they were made out of.
