As part of a unit of work on caring for the environment,  pupils compiled a variety of everyday materials this week and preticted what would happen when we bury the materials in our school garden over Easter.

20190412 235924

Materials included:

tissue, paper,cardboard, a variety of different plastic materials, felt, cotton wool, banana skins, tinfoil, clingfilm.

Pupils designed a fair test to ensure that all criteria in the experiment were constant except the material being invesigated.

We buried the materials today in the school garden and will discover what has happened each when we return after the Easter holidays.

The outcome of this experiment will hopefully help to encourage good practice on the materials we take to school in our lunchboxes going forward.
