Year one science
We have enjoyed investigating different materials and their properties. The children used the same resources the three little pigs used to construct a home. We tested our homes by trying to blow them down and tested the materials to see if they were waterproof!  
This week we read 'Duffy's Lucky Escape'. In the story Duffy the turtle mistakes plastic bags for jelly fish and then feels really poorly. We talked about how we can protect the sea creatures. The children created posters to encourage beach goers to pick up their rubbish.
 
They then had a go at 'cleaning the sea' themselves. They used toothbrushes to clean the sea creatures, tweezed out large piece of rubbish and finally they used filter paper to filter out any remaining rubbish.
