STEM WEEK – Floating and Sinking – FORCES

As part our work on stem week, we used inspiration from our 2nd class novel ‘Floodland’ by Marcus Sedgwick. We designed and made boats using our scientifc knowledge of materials and their┬áproperties as well as our knowledge of forces including upthrust. We delevoped our skills of working as part of a team and then tested our boats as a year group. We really enjoyed this destructive science experiment!

Next week we will be writing a scientific experiment based on our work this week.
