We've been thinking about Materials in our science lessons. We had to solve a problem - Mr Grinling's boat had gone missing  ( from The Lighthouse Keeper's Lunch story) and we had to make a new boat for him that floated. The children looked at the materials, felt them, drew their boat and made their boat, trying to use materials that would be good to float and keep the water out! During the next lesson they tested their boats and decided on any changes that were needed. We had some surprises and we then had to work out why those floated or sank.
