  1. At the start of the day we Miss started of explaining what we were going to do for the day she said that we were going to design and test space nappies/ normal nappies. Then we started testing nappy to see how much liquid could the nappies absorb. The new brand Aldi mamia nappies were the best adsorbant protective nappy. I think that the newer brands would be much better than the older brands.
    After this we came in after lunch and started design our space nappies. Then the part we were all excited for was when we had toilet paper and we wrapped the toilet paper a round ourselves

  2. Today we worked in pair and tested how well difference nappies absorbent liquid, we found out that the pampers (size 5)pull ups held the most liquid. The Huggies swimming nappy held the least amount of liquid (the amount was 10ml)

    The nappies are

    Pull ups, swimming huggies, pampers (size5), pampers (size 3) , Aldi mamia size1
    Aldi mamia size 5

  3. 1) We worked in pairs , using tissue roll, to use different designs, techniques and shapes to create a space nappy.

    2) We used different types of nappies and a ml cup to measure the amount of water used then pot it in the nappy investigating whether the nappy was absorbent and checked how heavy it is and felt the nappy, checking if the nappy absorbed quickly.

    3) We designed and annotated our nappy, also writing reasons what makes a good nappy.

    4) After that, we wrote our results, after the absorbency test.

    I shall write the numbers in the correct order. The order I shall be writing in is the order the sentences should be in.


    Plus, 5 Blue have really enjoyed ‘ Problem Solving Week’ so far, we have been working hard solving ‘ PROBLEMS’ and learning something new. However, we used and applied our knowledge to complete the absorbency test. We enjoyed using techniques and different shapes to create a decent space nappy out of tissue roll. We all created really good and decent work, when annotating and designing a space nappy.

    So far ‘ Problem Solving Week’ has been brilliant, We can wait to learn and discover new things, like in our mantra, ‘ UNRAVELLING THE UNKNOWN ADVENTURE’.

  4. Today we worked in pairs and tested how well different nappies absorbed liquid, we found out that the pampers (size 5) pull ups held the most liquid ( the amount was 1000+). The Huggies swimming nappy held the least amount of liquid ( the amount was 100ml).
    The nappies where;
    *Huggies swimming nappy’s *Pampers (size 5) *Pampers (size 3) *Pampers (size 5) pull ups *Aldi Mamia (size 1) *Aldi Mamia (size 5).

  5. Today we tested how the different brands of nappys would absorb the water and observed which one was the best. Then we wrote a conclusion for what we found out about the task we just did. We also wrapped people in nappies that was made from paper. After that we drew our nappies and wrote the materials and wrote what the materials were good for.

  6. We were using toilet rolls to make space nappys.We worked in pairs so one partner raps the tissue around the partner.
    We tested how well different branded nappys absorbed liquids we found out that the mamma nappys are 250ml.

  7. We tested a tissue made nappy to see if it was comfortable or uncomfortable.We worked as partners to rap tissue around each other for a nappy.We also tested if,we spilled water in the nappy,maybe it would leak.These were the nappy brands:
    Swimming nappies (huggies),Pampers(different sizes),Aldi mamia (different sizes.)

  8. I had a really fun day with the space nappie making we used the toilet paper rollers and we asked out patner to make us a nappie and then the best teacher in the world Mrs Edwards toke a picture of space in the green screen room.

  9. We tested how well different branded nappies absorbed liquid we found out that pampers were the the best beacause they absorbed all the water and we used toilet paper to test the shape of the nappies.

  10. We tested out a nappy and how much you should absorbant water in a nappy and the pampers nappy size 5 absorbant 1lirter of water and we used toilet roll to test the nappys. We annotate materials and features and what makes a good nappy.

  11. We had different brands of nappies and we put water into them to see if they could absorb it.We found out the nappy that could hold the most was the pampers pull ups.It could hold up to 1 litre.We found out that the Huggins swimming nappies could hold the least amount which was 50ml.We had toilet roll and we wrapped it round each other to see what our nappy would look like.

  12. Well done for creating such good nappies and they really look like some nappies that babies wear Or toddlers I think they all were good because they put a lot of time and effort in to it and they used there own imagination To create the Nappies and they look exactly like the real nappies.

  13. Today in 5Blue we tested how well different brand of nappies absorbed liquid. I found out that the nappy that held the least amount of liquid was Huggies nappies which could only hold 100ml,however the nappy that was most absorbent was pampers pull up which could hold 1L.In the afternoon,we used toilets rolls to test the shape of nappies,I found this activity really fun and creative.

  14. That was so fun I would make my nappy super duper alastic so it fits ages (0-90) and draw a picture of a spaceman and stars ⭐️, earth 🌏, and the sun ☀️. They are scented and are anti-stinky. Also they hound 10L, I know right. And they last up to 48H, OMG. But other than that pampers size 5 is amazing it holds up to 1L. The worst one was Huggies swimming nappies even know they are for swimming!


  15. Today we investigated space nappies …
    First we tested different nappies to see which one is absorbent .During the afternoon though we designed, drew and annotated nappies explaining features.we also designed nappies with a toilet roll.

  16. Today we designed our own Space Nappies made out of loo roll and tested if it was suitable for astronauts because in space when the astronauts need to go to the toilet the wee and the poo will just float in the air creating a big messy rocket and the rocket will stink a lot.

  17. Well done everyone! To design these space nappies, we needed to consider area to walk without ripping, comfortable fit and areas where poo wouldn’t all fall out. Today, we also had 5 different nappies and had to open them up and test their absorbency. Pampers nappies are the best. 🌌

  18. I already know that peeing and pooping in space would be really messy so we made space nappies so it won’t go everywhere we tested nappies also to check how much it would hold an the most the pampers size five pull-ups held 1Leter and the least was huggies nappy which held like 150ml of water I really enjoyed designing the nappys and making them out of toilet paper

  19. We learn about Space Nappy it was very interesting to find out some new vocabulary. We tested how well different branded napped absorbed liquid / We Found out how to create a Space Nappy Feature. We did drew a table charts to learn all about Space Nappy.

  20. We created space nappies by using toilet roll. I really enjoyed this. Also, we found out how many millilitres brand of nappies can carry. These brands include Aldi mamia , Huggies and Pampers.
