Safety testing, Science style.

Today, 2W have been looking at how bicycle helmets can protect our heads and what materials they are made of. We investigated a wide range of materials and their properties to see which would protect against an impact best and why. We then created mini helmets for an egg (hard-boiled!) and tested our theories. I wonder which eggs survived in one piece? Great fun was had by all.

2W investigate Victorian inventions.


This week, 2W have been discovering many of the amazing inventions that were created during the Victorian era, (such as the flushing toilet) that we all use every day. We looked at the Penny Farthing and the first motor car amongst other inventions. The class then worked in groups to create a timeline of Victorian inventions.
