This term, in Science, Class 2 are studying the properties of different materials. The decided to carry out an investigation as to which materials were transparent or opaque, and which materials were waterproof or absorbent. First they made their predictions and then they had to think about how they would find out if they were right. They recorded what equipment they would need, wrote their methods, carried out their investigation and wrote what conclusions they had discovered. Results were very interesting. Some people thought that the wooded spoon would be absorbent, however when they tested it, the water remained on top of the spoon. They found this strange, so decided to leave some water on the spoon overnight to see what would happen. The next day, the water had gone! So they concluded from this that wood is absorbent, however, it takes longer to absorb the water than the sponge!
