This morning we designed and built a boat to try and help the Gingerbread man get across the river without being eaten. Some of us made boats out of salt dough and some of us used foil. All of the salt dough boats sank straight away. The tin foil boats sank more slowly, one of the tin foil boats floated.


This afternoon we used what we had learnt to make another boat, we all used foil this time and all of our boats floated (at least for a while)

Then we investigated how we could get a goat, a wolf and the gingerbread man across the river without anyone boing eaten.
