In Science this week, we conducted an experiment to find out what were the best types of gloves to use on an expedition to the Polar Regions. We tested 4 types of gloves:
1. Rubber Washing-Up Gloves
2. Latex Disposable Gloves
3. Wollen Gloves
4. Ski Gloves
We tested them in different ways including holding ice, writing our names, doing up our coat and dipping them in water.
We have had a brilliant first week back at school. Our topic this term is the Animal Kingdom and we have already started thinking about lots of different types of animals.
In science, we learnt all about what we would need to take on a Polar Expedition. We unpacked an explorer's backpack and we even tried on some of his clothes. We used words like waterproof, insulated, fleece and windproof to describe the different materials.
