Year 1 spent this afternoon exploring how to keep snow!

The children were given a selection of materials to test after collecting snow from the playground.

They made their predictions and checked every ten minutes for changes.

The children were surprised that cotton will turned out to be the best insulator while tin foil was the least effective. Mrs Sloanes was equally shocked. We talked about how the tin foil conducts the heat and so will have sped up the melting process.
