After researching, annotating and following all different instructions, we invented our own instructions for how to grow broccoli (of course inspired by our story Avocado Baby)!

Science in year 1

We are learning lots of scientific skills which is helping us with our experiments. Whilst we've been exploring materials, we have investigated bouncibility and even made our own bouncy balls! Then we tested some materials to check if they were waterproof or not which was lots of fun. We do a great job of keeping safe and making sure all our tests are fair because that's how we get the best results and the have most fun! 



 Our Bouncibility experiment...



We tested to see which materials absorbed water and which didn't so we could help teddy fix his broken umbrella!
