This week we have been investigating which material would be best for the Princess’s bed in the Princess and the Pea story. She had had a terrible night sleep due to sleeping on a hard pea. We tested paper towels, cotton wool, bubble wrap, felt and sponge. A lot of the children predicted that the cotton wool would be the best as it was so soft, but after testing all the materials, discovered that it was actually the sponge that provided the most comfort. Fantastic investigating Reception!
