This week as part of Year 3’s Dimensions topic, Athens v Sparta, the children have put their science hats on to investigate floating and sinking.

They predicted which materials would float or sink and they discussed how density effects objects. Today they had 3 attempts to make their plasticine ‘boat’ float. The children had lots of fun manipulating the plasticine, problem solving and finally figuring out how to make their boat float by equally distributing the mass into a boat shape.
