The Year 2 children were super excited this week to find a letter that Santa had sent them asking the children for help. He told us that there had been a power cut in the North Pole, and asked us to send him a candle which would help him continue making toys in the dark. The children decided that the candle would need to burn slowly and came up with an investigation to test the burning times of various candles. The children began by researching candles available online. They then made predictions and came up with a clear method for their test. They then made observations and measurements, and finally decided that the green pillar candle was the most suitable for Santa. The children made fantastic bar charts on Hwb to show the difference in lengths of the candles before and after burning, and even learned how to email Santa to tell him what they found out! Jackson volunteered to take the winning candle to Lapland with him to give to Santa. Well done, Year 2! You have saved the day for Santa!
