Class 1- Beat the Flood

Today Class 1 were challenged to ‘Beat the Flood’. After watching news reports on BBC Newsround and talking about flooding around the world, we worked in pairs to build a shelter for our ‘pets’. After a while, we paused to watch a video which gave us ideas on how to make improvements to our designs.

After lunch, Class 1 explored a selection of new materials and worked together to create a protective barrier. We also introduced the words ‘absorb’ and ‘absorbent’.  This task really tested our resilience and our problem-solving skills!

We have started our testing, but we will finish this off on Friday. Good work today everyone!
