Science Year 2

Science: Forces/Materials Year 2

Tuesday 29th March

Science: Forces/Materials

Last week we looked at a picture of a toad in the book Tuesday by David Wiesner. We then tried to make our own toad using clay.

Today, with a partner, we designed a transporter to move our toads across a surface, like the lily pads in the book. They were allowed to use lolly sticks, card, string, sticky tape.  

Once the children had created their basic design, some children then discussed with their partner how they could adapt their transporter to make improvements.

Luis designed a transporter with a seatbelt to keep his toad safe.

Olivia and Blake designed sides to their transporter to keep their toad in it.
