Oh no, Poor Mr Tumnus has broken his umbrella!

Will Year 2 be able to help him choose a waterproof material to help him make a new one?

The children carried out an experiment to find out if the following materials were waterproof. Cling film, tin foil, plastic bag, tissue and kitchen roll. We put a mini Mr Tumnus in a glass jar and covered him with one of the materials and then we poured water onto it to see if he would stay dry. We recorded our results and found that the cling film, tin foil and plastic bag were waterproof while poor Mr Tumnus got wet when we tested the tissue and kitchen roll.
