Robins help a mermaid in trouble!

As part of our science this half term Robins class have been learning about materials.

Last week we named materials that we could find around the classroom, this week we began to look at properties of materials.

We received a letter from Marissa the mermaid, she had lost some of her scales and needed our help!

She asked us to find something suitable to cover her tail until the scales grew back. As a class we decided that whatever material we used would need to be waterproof.

We turned into super scientists and began to carry out experiments to find which material would be suitable, we were very careful to make sure that we treated each material fairly. We had great fun testing a range of materials until finally we found one that was waterproof.

Marissa was very grateful for our help!

Well done super scientists from Robins class.
