In science this week Reception have been investigating different materials and looking at what they are used for. We linked our investigations to this term’s topic ‘Stories and Rhymes’ and decided to make an umbrella for the gingerbread man. The children experimented with different materials to see which would keep the gingerbread man dry and which would not. The children predicted that plastic and foil would keep him dry, and paper and tissue would not. They were very excited by the outcome of their experiment!
