Year 2 Fabric Investigation

This week we carried out an exciting investigation as part of our Science work on ‘Materials: Good Choices’! We were trying to find out which fabric would be best for a toddler’s dungarees. We talked about how they often wear these to play in the garden and sometimes fall over!


Can you tell me how we carried out the investigation? Here is a picture to remind you!
