The Gingerbread Man – Nursery

Nursery have been learning the story of The Gingerbread Man. We decided to bake some gingerbread men of our own.

As a culmination of their learning this term on ‘Properties of Materials’, 5C focused all of their minds on science today as they worked in groups on a Boat Building Challenge.

Given a limited set of materials, the groups had to plan how they could ensure they created a vessel that would be able to carry a 200g weight, while remaining afloat and dry.

As you can see from the pictures, some were more successful than others.

The children also found out more about forces, ahead of their Funfair Physics trip tomorrow, as well as beginning to explore conductivity in electrical circuits.
