Properties of Materials
Senior Infants have been looking at and feeling lots of different materials this month. We learned many words to describe how some materials look and feel. Some of the words we learned used are; fuzzy, flexible, hard, spongy, transparent, waterproof, absorbent and rough. We also experimented with some materials and water. We wanted to find out if the materials were waterproof or absorbent.

Floating and Sinking
Senior Infants and 1st class made their own paper boats. We discussed forces used to move boats. We also carried out an experiment to see how many raisins would it take to sink one of the boats. We estimated first but the number exceeded our expectations. Amazingly it took 122 raisins to sink our paper boat!
