Year One’s Science Experiment

Year One had to fight the Great Fire of Hillside this week! As part of their Science learning they posed the question, what would be the best material to make a bucket? They tested the materials, used super vocab, made expert predictions and then raced to put out the fire! They found the answer when the glass won (it was a bit bigger and plastic really!) closely followed by plastic and metal which the children had all seen in real life make excellent buckets – for cleaning windows or playing on the beach! Ask them why a glass bucket wouldn’t be great in real life! 🪣 🔥 💦
