All about nappies

February 29, 2016

Today Science Club have been looking at the amazing materials that are used to make disposable nappies!  We took apart some (clean! unused!) nappies to see the layers, fastenings and elastic.  Then we looked closer and noticed that the nappies contain small granules of superabsorbent polymer material that can absorb large amounts of liquid.

Puppets, puppets everywhere!!

February 24, 2016

We have been busy designing and making puppets in design technology! We looked at the class puppets and thought about how we could make our own. We noticed that all the puppets were stitched with thread but we also experimented with staples and glue- we decided these were a bit messy and we wanted to try sewing! We […]
