This week in the reception classes we have been learning about different kinds of boats for our transport learning this term. We have been wondering what makes a good boat and how a design, and its materials, can help it to float. We ended the week with a boat race in the swimming pool to test our boats. Most of them floated so we decided that it was due to the use of plastic, especially if our boat was hollow and full of air. We used the swimming floats to waft our boats half way across the swimming pool and we did heats to see who would be in our final five. Freddie won in Ruby class, Wayne from Amber and Tommy from Emerald. Well done boys!
