Which material will make the best umbrella for Teddy?

Year 1 have been testing materials to see if they are waterproof.

We learnt to use scientific words like ‘absorb’ and ‘repel’ to describe what happens when water is applied to different materials. We also considered other properties of the materials that would or would not make them suitable for making an umbrella using words like ‘flexible’, ‘rigid’, ‘strong’,’weak’, ‘heavy’ and ‘light’.
