The children in Year 2 were investigating which material would be the most suitable to make a new umbrella for Winnie the Pooh to splash about in the rain with. It needed to be waterproof and light. Children had a range of materials to test including paper, cardboard, fabric, plastic and kitchen roll. Using straws, we dropped the water carefully onto the different materials.
Everyone worked hard and the class identified that plastic was the best material to make an umbrella for Winnie the Pooh as it was waterproof and lightweight!
