Year 1 had a great trip to @Bristol on Tuesday. First we had a workshop called ‘Build It’ where we explored the best materials to use for both the walls and roof of a house. We tested a paper wall-which was wind proof but it was still not strong enough as Will was able to punch straight through it! We also tested wood which burnt very easily so wouldn’t be very safe so we decided the bricks would be the best material as they are strong and didn’t catch fire. We then tested materials for the roof, we had to make sure it was waterproof so we poured water on the different materials. The shingle tiles were the best waterproof materials.

Then we were able to explore the different exhibits where we learnt lots about science. There were lots of different things which we really enjoyed but we especially loved the big bubble maker and the construction area where we tested out over overlapping brick laying skills that we were taught in our workshop-this made sure the walls were really strong and wouldn’t fall down. We had a great day and really enjoyed ourselves!
