Class 1- Making Dams

Over the past couple of days, Class 1 have learnt about and built their own dams. Pairs of children chose which materials they wanted to use and then made improvements to their structures after their first test with water.

After making flood barriers and boats, Class 1 have become very knowledgeable about the properties of different materials and reflected this in their choices.

We introduced new words such as ‘reservoir’ and ‘watertight’, but also revisited previous vocabulary like ‘absorbent’.

Great job everyone, you persevered even though this was quite a tricky challenge!
