First we came up with an idea as a class for the BT Young Scientist and Technology Exhibition. Mr. Dignam entered us online and our idea was ‘can we turn summer clothes into winter clothes’. We got in! A few weeks later, we did a heat experiment with Ms. O’Sullivan to learn about convection. Then we did an experiment with Mr. Dignam with coffee cups to see which materials insulate the best another day.
Then one week later we brought in some old clothes like tops, leggings, jeans, hoodies and lots more and the next day we started coming up with some ideas for our clothing. Each group got either a top or trousers to use and you had to insulate them to make them better for cold weather in winter. The people with the trousers had to make this disgusting insulation with cotton pads and PVA glue and yesterday as insulation. Then we finished designing and making them.
Today the official photographers came and took some cool pictures of our clothing.
It was lots of fun doing the experiment and we all enjoyed it.

Our class did the MS Readathon in the month of November.
We read 109 books and raised 288.80 euro.
Last Friday we had a MS Readathon day and we brought in a book that we read for the MS Readathon. We also watched a movie about David Attenborough. It’s called a life on our planet.
