Year 1 – Floating and Sinking

In Science this week, Year 1 have carried out an investigation into floating and sinking. As part of their topic on transport, they wanted to find out which material would best to make a boat from.

To start, the children needed to name the different materials and predict whether they would float or sink. They sorted them into two groups…

Next the children tested their predictions by dropping the materials into some water. They recorded whether or not their prediction was right or wrong. They also noted if the material sank quickly or slowly. Great investigation work Year 1!
