Year 1 Visit The Floating Classroom

On Tuesday, Year 1 excitedly visited the Floating Classroom!

We took part in a workshop called ‘Pirate Materials’ and worked scientifically with a hands-on session investigating materials.

In the morning we began by making a hat for every pirate (child) and started singing our pirate song. We  had time on deck to spot a range of objects that can float and we explored a range of materials and used these materials to construct a boat that will float.

During the afternoon we examined the famous Coot’s Nest of Little Venice before building some coots nests of our own. We finished by showing off our new knowledge when sorting materials and, finally, walked the plank!
