Materials - experiments

In Year One we have been learning about Materials. We can name materials, explain where we would find them and we know their properties. 


We completed an experiment to find out which materials are waterproof and which materials are not. We used tissue paper, a plastic bag, kitchen roll, cardboard and a metal tray. 


We dipped the materials into the water and observed any changes that may have happened once we pulled them out. We discussed what makes a material waterproof and the children were excited to observe the materials during the experiment. They recorded their findings after the experiment.
